Lipreaders on what the royal family said to each other at the anniversary

You can tell a lot about a person by the way they move their body, especially their mouth.

Eagle-eyed lipreaders were able to decipher what members of the royal family were actually saying to each other during Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations over the weekend.

During Thursday’s Trooping the Color appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, lipreaders Jeremy Freeman and John Cassidy were able to point out that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s daughter Princess Charlotte was giving her older brother Prince George some sisterly advice, the Mirror reported.

The 8-year-old dangled his arm on the balcony and Charlotte, 7, told him to hold it by his side instead for safety, they said.

Around the same time, on the mezzanine floor, the Queen, 96, was asked by her great-grandson Prince Louis: “Are the Red Arrows coming?” according to Lipreaders, to which she replied: “I hope so.”

The Red Arrows are Royal Air Force aircraft that flew over the Palace during the event.

As the planes appeared and turned the sky red, white and blue, Louis stole the show by excitedly yelling “Yes, yes, yes!”

The Queen declared to the young lad, “There it is,” before Louis exclaimed, “Oh Red Arrows, whoah! Wow, that was loud!”

Kate, 40, was seen saying “Amazing” and Charlotte gushed “Wow!”

During the national Thanksgiving service for the Queen’s reign at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday, Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry sat far from estranged family members, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

According to The Sun, Markle, 40, said to Harry, 37, during the nearly hour-long service, “Yeah, it’ll be fine.” There was another moment during the service when the former “Suits” actress added the word “wow” to her four year old husband said.

After the church ceremony, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla stood outside with Kate and William, 39. Commenting on the service, according to the Mirror, she said: “It went very well, very well,” to which the Duke replied, “Yeah great.”

As the couple waited for their car to take them to the day’s next event, William waved to the excited crowd, then turned to his wife to say, “Wait until that moves, then we can go.”

On Sunday, the sovereign made one final appearance during the folk pageant when she reappeared on the balcony alongside Charles, 73, Camilla, 74, Kate and William.

The national anthem played while red, white and blue smoke blanketed the air for one final anniversary party.

Lipreaders believed the Queen looked surprised at the moment, claiming she told George: “Ah, brilliant! I did not know it.”

The Platinum Jubilee was held to celebrate the Queen’s seven decades on the British throne.
