Meghan Markle has adopted some of Michelle Obama's mannerisms to sound "more presidential and convincing" in the trailer for her and Prince Harry's new Spotify podcast, a behavioral expert claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex says "my husband" when referring to Prince Harry in the shot, reminiscent of the former first lady who, according to UK-based expert Judi James, often uses the same rhetorical technique.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry sounds "less confident" than his former actress wife.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced yesterday that they will be producing and hosting their own shows as part of the newly formed Archewell Audio – starting with a "holiday special" that will "wow audiences around the world".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they will be producing and hosting their own shows as part of the newly formed Archewell Audio (pictured), starting with a "holiday special" that will "delight audiences around the world".
Analyzing the trailer for the Daily Express, Judi said Meghan used "persuasive" techniques to convince her husband to take the lead while switching to a "more professional and semi-presidential delivery".
Judi said, "Meghan is showing a hint of her persuasive techniques with Harry by using flattery to get him to start recording."
She added that the Duchess seemed to be "practically purring" after complimenting Prince Harry's accent, while his voice turned throaty as a result.
Her trailer begins with the 36-year-old Duke saying "Ladies first" to his wife before Meghan says, "No, you say it first because I think your accent makes it sound really good."
Commenting on the Queen's grandson's speaking skills during the trailer, Judi said, "Harry is a much less confident speaker than Meghan in this audio clip … (but) he's very keen on getting everything right for his wife."
She suggests that he is verbally stalling during his dialogue, but his relaxed tone suggests that the audience is giving the king a more personal side.
Meanwhile, Angela Levin told talkRADIO that the 39-year-old Duchess was "slightly patronizing and very regal" on Monday when she praised the "silent heroes" of the coronavirus pandemic in a clip recorded for CNN (picture)
Meanwhile, according to the behavioral expert, Meghan has been classified as "semi-presidential" and "professional". The Duchess had speech techniques used by high profile figures such as Michelle Obama and the Queen.
It comes after royal writer Angela Levin told talkRADIO that 39-year-old Meghan was "slightly patronizing and very regal" on Monday when she praised the "silent heroes" of the coronavirus pandemic in a clip recorded for CNN.
Judi noted that when Meghan said "One of the things my husband and I always talked about," it sounded similar to the former first lady's speeches.
She said, "This is a sudden shift from informal, talkative flirting to a high-profile tone of calling Harry" my husband "even though he's with her and has already introduced himself.
"It has overtones of the phrase 'my husband and I' which is so often used by the queen."
The body language and behavior expert isn't the only one who has noticed Meghan's new "royal tone". Royal writer Angela Levin drew a similar conclusion earlier this week.

She spoke to talkRADIO about Meghan's appearance on CNN on Monday as the Duchess praised the "silent heroes" of the coronavirus pandemic who have supported communities.
Angela said: & # 39; (Meghan) is trying to be very regal despite wanting to get out of the royal family. She's very regal, she talks to us, she's a little patronizing. & # 39;
The commentator continued: "She always uses the term 'we', the royal term 'we'. That means everyone has to agree with her because she knows what everyone is thinking. She has the right to say what she likes, of course, but it's her way of saying it. & # 39;
Meghan's appearance on CNN marked the first time the Duchess had been seen since she miscarried this summer.

She said in the clip: “We saw communities stand up and take action. When the children's lunch programs stalled, we saw our neighbors making sure these children got the food they needed. & # 39;
She added that "we have emerged as a community" to provide the food needed by vulnerable people, and that "we have also seen the power of the human spirit" and that "we have the power to remind others that there is hope ".
Rather than addressing her own loss, she said 2020 was "a year that has been a universal challenge for everyone" before commending those who took the opportunity and fed hungry neighbors in troubled times.
Meghan had spoken on the CNN Heroes series, which praised those who make a difference in the communities.
"It sounds really good with your accent": Prince Harry and Meghan Markle unveil their new Archewell Audio Podcast, which features "Stories of Hope and Compassion," revealing that the first episode will be a "Holiday Special".
The Spotify trailer featuring the Sussexes was released online this afternoon.
It starts with Harry saying to his wife, "Ladies first," before Meghan says, "No, you say it first because I think it sounds really good with your accent."
The Duke of Sussex then says "Archewell Audio" and together they say, "Let's do it".
Prince Harry then says, "Hi guys, I am Harry" before Meghan says, "And I am Meghan," with both of them choosing not to use their royal titles.
Meghan then says, "One of the things my husband and I always talked about is our passion to meet people and hear their stories. And no matter what story they usually give an understanding of where someone else is from. And somehow remember a story about you.
Harry continues: & # 39; And that's what this story is about. To bring up different perspectives and voices that you may not have heard before. And find our similarities. Because when that happens, change is really possible.
The Duchess of Sussex says the podcasts are about "finding kindness and compassion from what we've seen in many places this year".
She adds, "It will underpin everything you have here at Archewell Audio – so we do it."
Their first show this month will be a "Holiday Special" which will feature "Stories of Hope and Compassion from Inspirational Guests in Celebration of the New Year".
Harry and Meghan both mimick church bells before saying, "We can't wait to share them with you and we'll be out later this month."
Meghan says, “We're talking to some amazing people who will share their memories that made this year. As we know, this was difficult for everyone. "
Addressing the pandemic, Harry says, “So many people have suffered so much pain, loss and tremendous uncertainty this year, but it's worth noting that 2020 has connected us in ways we never would have can imagine. Through endless acts of compassion and kindness.
When you plug in the podcast, Harry says, “So what you need to do now is tap Follow. Go on, go on Tap, follow and that way you won't miss a thing and you can hear new shows on Archewell Audio as they drop.
Meghan finishes the trailer and says, “We're so excited. So, follow and listen only on Spotify for free. See you again here soon. & # 39;
Harry signs off with an American-sounding "Happy Holidays", while Meghan ends with a British "cheer".
