Meghan Markle really can't break this one anxious habit


Everyone has their habits, from biting our nails to shaking our legs, that come out when we need comforting. And when we say everyone, that also means Meghan Markle. There's one thing that the future royal does a lot of ... touch her hair.

"Some people touch their hair, play with their fingernails, or rub their arms, as a way to psychologically and physiologically calm themselves when they're feeling anxious, uncomfortable, or stressed," body language expert and author Blanca Cobb told Good Housekeeping. "Some people might touch, twirl or stroke their hair when in awkward social situations such as when they're not sure what to do or what to say."


With the world watching her every move (and these photos lasting for years to come), we can see why Meghan would feel nervous during photocalls or public appearances.

"In this situation, Meghan's hair touch is a soothing gesture," Cobb said. " Her head is also tilted down slightly. Sometimes when you feel too much attention you might tuck your chin down as a way to shield yourself."

But it's nice to know that at the end of the day, the future roal is just like us mere mortals and needs soothing from time to time.

Since the announcement of her engagement to Prince Harry, all eyes have been on Meghan. And we couldn't help but notice how she's set out to do things her way despite breaking royal protocol on several occasions. Check out the slideshow below for all the ways she's broken protocol:
