Boris Johnson looked "haunted and troubled" over the weekend without his fiancée Carrie Symonds by his side, while the "cockiness" of the "tired" prime minister is now "invisible," a body language expert has claimed.
The 56-year-old Prime Minister made a lonely figure yesterday when he attended a memorial service at Westminster Abbey to mark the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
While union leader Sir Keir Starmer was accompanied by his wife, Lady Victoria, Boris & # 39; partner Carrie Symonds, who gave birth to son Wilfred in April, was absent.
This morning Piers Morgan branded the Prime Minister a 'broken guy' on Good Morning Britain, adding, "He's lonely, he's sick … I wouldn't be surprised if Boris quit, there is no victory for him here, everything is one. " Loss and it pile up. & # 39;

His remarks after a damning report in The Times on Saturday claiming Mr Johnson was "unusually serious – even somber" during his public appearances last week.
Body language guru Judi James told FEMAIL: & # 39;Boris & # 39; cockiness was once the king of the spread legs and arms. His legs were less than usual apart on duty in the Battle of Britain, and with his hands clasped in the fig leaf position he looked like he was protecting himself from possible criticism or attack.
Upon arrival, he performed a condensed self-comfort ritual and put a hand in his pocket before removing it with an unpleasant look.
With his crumpled shirt, ruffled tie collar, and wobbly tie, he looked in complete contrast to the crust-fresh Kier Starmer, who entered the venue next to his wife with an air of energy and determination.

"Without Carrie by his side, Boris' expression above the mask looked haunted and his frown looked worried."
While Piers called for strong leadership with "congruent" gestures, Judi claimed that Boris had become "a completely different kind of charismatic leader".
"After Boris himself suffered an illness while balancing adultery and new baby, the signals point to some kind of revelation," she concluded.
& # 39; The man whose signature expression was a naughty smile and sparkling eye, and who bathed in his high levels of fame and popularity and was traded on to be liked, now looks like a haunted man.
According to Judi, "Boris' expression above the mask looked followed without Carrie by his side and his frown looked worried".
Judi added that while it would be "inappropriate and unacceptable" for Boris to display "his usual smug smile or naughty expression", what we have for her is "a look of loneliness and self-protection".
"The new look may not suit Piers Morgan, but this new 'honesty' in body language suggests at least some level of empathy and the fulfillment of the responsibility he is now facing."
Judi added that it would be "inappropriate and unacceptable" for Boris to show "his usual smug smile or naughty expression" but what we have for her is "a look of loneliness and self-protection".
"Boris was seriously ill and the effects could still be ongoing," she continued.
Without Carrie by your side or a wingman to talk to, it seems that some of the most natural feelings of the crisis are showing through.
“Of course he looks tired and less cocky. The question is, will he or should he choose to re-embrace the kind of alpha bragging rights and sense of fun that is evident in Donald Trump's behavior, or should he show signs of accepting the seriousness of the situation with? that he's trying to fight? & # 39;
Boris Johnson, pictured in the House of Commons last week, was accused by a senior Tory in a report in The Times on Saturday of "not enjoying being at the helm in rough seas"
A senior conservative who meets with the prime minister regularly told The Times that the prime minister "doesn't seem to enjoy being at the top in rough seas," adding, "All of this weighs heavily on him. Me think you can even see it in some of his public appearances – the kind of misery that is engraved on his face. & # 39;
Meanwhile, a source told the publication that Mr Johnson misses ex-wife Marina Wheeler, who was his "intellectual match" and "instrumental in organizing his life from an intellectual point of view."
"I don't think it's the same relationship with Carrie," the source claimed. & # 39; Carrie really loves him and he loves her. But that's very different from before and the pressures of living with a little baby and partner on Downing Street, however accommodating it may be. It's still damn difficult.
Friends and colleagues are reportedly not only "exhausted" from his battle with Covid-19 and recently re-fathers, but have raised concerns that Mr Johnson is "worried about money".

Mr Johnson went through an expensive divorce, is still supporting four out of six of his children and saw his income drop from around £ 350,000 to £ 150,000 after he was forced to remove his newspaper column and public speaking when he became Prime Minister .
Carrie reportedly started an affair with Johnson when he was Secretary of State in 2018 while he was married to Marina – his second wife.
She gave birth to her son in London on April 29, with the Prime Minister by her side, days after he was discharged from medical care himself after a long battle with coronavirus.
In a heartwarming Instagram post that revealed the boy's name, Carrie said the middle name Nicholas was a tribute to two NHS doctors, Dr. Nick Price and Dr. Nick Hart, who saved Boris's life last month after battling the coronavirus.
The first name pays homage to the Prime Minister's paternal grandfather, Osman Wilfred Kemal, and Lawrie a nod to Carrie's grandfather.
Last week, Ms. Symonds announced that she would be judging a virtual lip-sync fight hosted by the LGBT + conservative wing.
She said she was looking forward to judging the event, which is part of the party conference that will be held online this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
