Body language expert reveals why Prince Harry likes playing with his wedding ring

After marrying Meghan Markle in May, Prince Harry has pretty much been by her side all summer long, minus a few solo engagements

From taking in the hit musical 'Hamilton' to attending various charity events side-by-side, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex seem to be lovingly attached at the hip. 

However, Prince Harry made headlines this week during a visit to the Royal Marines Commando Training Centre. As any royal fan knows, Harry used to be in the British Army and went on two tours to Afghanistan.

During the visit, Prince Harry was notably fiddling with his wedding ring.

In a report from Express, body language expert Judi James suggests that the reason for Harry's behavior is very sweet -- he's missing his wife!

"In Harry’s case this looks like a self-comfort ritual performed for two reasons, when he's feeling under pressure or lonely.”

James continued explaining that, "firstly it allows him to create a barrier with his arms but by seeking out his wedding ring to touch and play with it suggests he's missing the back-up and support of his wife here." Swoon!

Meghan Markle also made headlines of her own this week when an eagle-eyed royal fan thought that she spotted the duchess walking her dog on the streets of London. While that instance turned out to just be a doppelganger, we can't wait for the next time Prince Harry and Meghan do step out together!
