PRINCE Andrew revealed how he felt "uncomfortable" during the service for the Queen with one telling act, claims a body language expert.
Expert Adrianne Carter – who goes by The Face Whisperer – said that the Duke of York looked particularly out of place during the poignant service at Westminster Hall.
The service followed a sombre 38-minute procession where King Charles led the Queen's children and grandchildren from the Palace past thousands of mourners.
Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, Sophie Wessex and the Queen Consort travelled behind in a car.
Andrew started the day dressed in a morning suit alongside Prince Harry, for the Queen's coffin procession after their ban from wearing military uniforms.
And while the Prince may have looked out of place in the procession, Adrianne believes he also looked "uncomfortable" at the service.

The body language pro told the Daily Star: "Prince Andrew was the only one flicking through the order of service.
"It looked like deflecting behaviour as he might be feeling uncomfortable.
"When we feel uncomfortable, we often fiddle with something to distract ourselves."
The royals united in their grief as they watched the Queen's coffin being left on the catafalque of the vast hall.
