Reportedly Kate Middleton and Queen Letizia both attended the Order of the Garter in London. Twitter users are convinced of a rift between the Duchess of Cambridge and the wife of the King of Spain, calling Kate “rude”. But what did a body language expert make of the claims?If the twitter-sphere is in a tizzy, Kate could find herself getting some unwanted attention. The Duchess of Cambridge does seem to have her hands full with feuds at the moment. If the reports of a supposed rift between her and the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle are to be believed. Kate has apparently been blamed for indulging in an alleged feud between Norfolk neighbor Rose Hanbury.Reportedly social media users are suspicious of a feud between Kate and Spanish royal Queen Letizia. These users are convinced that Kate has beef with Queen Letizia as the Duchess of Cambridge put on a grumpy face and ignored Queen Letizia, while others claimed that Kate was being disrespectful. Not all of them were blaming Kate though, as some came to her rescue claiming that people are reading too much into non-issues and gestures.

James said: “A clue that all might not be as it seems in terms of any hints of slight awkwardness might come from the fact that Kate appears to dislike carriage rides because they cause her motion sickness.””Her body language reflected tension during the ride at the Trooping of the Colour and this could be a similar problem for her here,” he said.We have to say that it sounds like a more reasonable explanation than Kate Middleton randomly hating another Royal without a reason.
Map of MoroccoMorocco has banned the production and sale of burqa full-face Muslim veils, apparently for security reasons, media reports said Tuesday.While there was no official announcement by authorities in the North African nation, the reports said the interior ministry order would take effect this week.“We have taken the step of completely banning the import, manufacture and marketing of this garment in all the cities and towns of the kingdom,” the Le360 news site quoted a high-ranking interior ministry official as saying.It said the measure appeared to be motivated by security concerns, “since bandits have repeatedly used this garment to perpetrate their crimes.”Most women in Morocco, whose King Mohammed VI favours a moderate version of Islam, prefer the hijab headscarf that does not cover the face.The niqab, which leaves the area around the eyes uncovered, is also worn in Salafist circles and in more conservative regions in the north, from where thousands of jihadists have gone to fight in Syria and Iraq.In some commercial districts of Casablanca, the country’s economic capital, interior ministry officials on Monday conducted “awareness-raising campaigns with traders to inform them of this new decision,” the Media 24 website said.In Taroudant in southern Morocco, authorities ordered traders to stop making and selling burqas and to liquidate their stock within 48 hours, the reports said.Retailers in the northern town of Ouislane were said to have received similar instructions.It was unclear if Morocco plans to follow in the footsteps of some European countries such as France and Belgium where it is illegal to wear full veils in public.The reports were met with a muted response in the absence of official confirmation, though Salafists expressed concern that the measure could be expanded to include the niqab.“Is Morocco moving towards banning the niqab that Muslim women have worn for five centuries?” Salafist sheikh Hassan Kettani wrote on Facebook.“If true it would be a disaster,” he added.
