Harry’s gestures are ‘epitome of genuine happiness’ on solo trip to Japan

Prince Harry arrives for visit to Japan wearing an Archewell cap

Prince Harry’s gestures during his visit to Japan suggested he felt “absolute joy” for his solo appearance, an expert has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex is in Tokyo where he attended the ISPS Sports Values Summit and joined a panel to talk about sport, community and philanthropy.

As he was welcomed onto the stage at the event, he was seen smiling widely and laughing while enjoying every second.

Prince Harry went to Japan without his wife Meghan Markle or their children, Archie, four, and Lilibet, two.

And body language expert Darren Stanton said he believes Harry appeared like he was having fun.

Speaking on behalf of Betfair Casino, he explained: “We saw Harry being joined by ISPS Handa’s founder Haruhisa Handa, ex-New Zealand rugby player Dan Carter and Nacho Figueras on stage at the summit. Harry was seen smiling and laughing, which proves that he felt absolute joy at that moment in time.

“His mouth was open and his eyes were fully wide, and that is the epitome of genuine happiness.”

The expert said Harry seemed to be having fun and felt at ease “without pressure or drama” and seemed to be “enjoying being in that environment.”

Darren added: “We also saw Harry looking down at Haruhisa Handa – showing he was unconsciously mirroring him. This shows they have built a great friendship through their body language. I can tell there is a great level of trust between them through their strong eye contact. Their body postures were also matched completely, which shows they’re on the same level as each other.”

During the panel, Prince Harry stressed the importance of teamwork, saying sport required having “a dream” and the “need for community”.

He said: “I have long believed that sport is a conduit for healing – not just for the mind and body but the world.

“Sport requires having a dream and the need for community. Whether banded together in victory or showing up with respect in loss, no one ever crosses a finish line or scores a goal without the help and belief of others.

“The lessons we learn on the field are often the same principles of philanthropy; that a mission, hard work, dedication, and partnership can make even the impossible, possible. That is what giving back requires, and we are all capable of creating or joining a team to do so.”

Harry’s trip overseas comes as he is set to compete in a charity polo match alongside Nacho on Saturday.

The annual event, which started in 2010, raises funds for Sentebale, an organisation set up by the duke in 2006 to support children and young people affected by poverty, inequality and HIV/AIDS in southern Africa.

The friendly game will see Harry go head-to-head against Nacho, with the duke playing for the Royal Salute Sentebale team and the renowned Argentine polo player leading the Singapore Polo Club’s team.
