Body language can tell you a lot about a couple. It can often reveal how comfortable they are with each other, how much they like each other, and even how long they’ve been together. One couple who has given us a ton of messages through their body language is Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Pictures of the newly-engaged couple show a man and a woman who are very much in love. Other celebrity couples who are deeply in love can also be seen displaying behavior that shows the world how much they care for each other.
Here’s how celebrity couples like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle show their love.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
Kanye West isn’t shy when it comes to letting people know how much he adores wife Kim Kardashian. His fondness for her can be seen in their 2016 interview with Harper’s Bazaar. The couple is often holding hands everywhere they go. And in this picture, West has his body fully turned toward Kardashian, and his gaze fixed on her lips. Blanca Cobb, body language and lie detection expert, said this action of turning the body toward Kardashian shows that West is really into his wife.

Psychotherapist Toni Coleman told The Cheat Sheet couples in love tend to focus on each other.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
The love between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is visible from the way they interact. Prince Harry and Markle can’t seem to take their eyes off each other. They also hold hands and display soft facial expressions whenever they look at each other.
April Masini, a relationship expert and founder of relationship advice forum Ask April, told The Cheat Sheet she also sees a confidence in the way the couple interacts. Masini made an interesting observation about the couple’s engagement photos.
The most striking image I’ve seen is the newly released official engagement photos — particularly the one where Ms. Markle is sitting between Prince Harry’s legs, both of them staring into the camera. This choice of pose is particularly intimate, especially for royals. The choice of pose as well as the ease they convey, shows a sexual confidence, as well as a challenge to those of us viewing — as evidenced by their gaze straight into the camera, instead of toward each other. They’re engaging each other with their bodies, and the rest of us with their line of sight.
