She suggested the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have shown more of their “fun side” during recent appearances.
Judi stated: “Kate and William’s PDAs have increased during their marriage.
“William’s inherited status meant there was no need for any power-posturing, but Kate has always been careful to look traditionally, pitch-perfect regal.
“Her growing confidence in their well-defined double-act has led her to de-royal slightly now though, and relax to show her more casual and fun side.
“This seems to have been picked up by William who is also looking much less cautious and more relaxed recently.”
The expert suggested the couple have become more publicly affectionate with each other.
She continued: “Although Kate and William’s PDAs have been rare and subtle, their even-handed mirroring traits and their subtler tie-signs and fun competitiveness have shown more dimensions in terms of romantic affection.
“The Cambridge’s PDAs have increased with time, but their initial masking was probably more down to William’s passionate desire to avoid the kind of soap opera publicity that surrounded his parent’s marriage.”
“Affection rituals from Kate are full of quite complex nuances of the type that long-term loving couples can excel in.”
While Prince William is set to become King, the Cambridges appear to share responsibilities and Kate will often step up to support the family.
The expert added: “William and Kate have always role-shared and, like a lot of couples that work together, they seem to take it in turns when it comes to taking the lead.
“Kate has often acted as support and confidence-booster for William in the past and she recently stepped up to take over the reins.”

The royal line of succession – who outranks who?
The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.
It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.
Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.
Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.
The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.
Prince Charles, 72, is currently first-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 38, his oldest son.
Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 36. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
