Prince Harry of England met with Donald Trump’s wife Melania, and flashed some weird hand symbol.
If that’s not odd, what makes it completely odd is that it’s not like he held the ‘symbol’ for a second or two – he did it for a lot of seconds.
Harry and Melania posed for a series of photos together before sitting down for a chat. Trump stood with her arms at her sides, while Harry’s hand was half-tucked into his jacket in a very unusual way: His ring and middle fingers were tucked inside his coat along with his thumb, while he held his pinky and pointer fingers outside.
His unusual gesture ― and whether or not it was intentional ― became a hot topic over the weekend. People on Twitter and some media outlets noted it looks like Harry was giving a symbol of the devil, either signaling that he himself is the devil or that the spirit of the devil surrounded him.
But two body language experts think the gesture was misread in two very different ways. Patti Wood, body language expert and author of Snap: Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language & Charisma, told HuffPost that while Harry has held his jacket in photos before, this specific hand position is new.
“This is called the horn or the devil’s horn, and what people are saying in the media about it is not correct,” she said. “It is not a sign that he’s the devil, but rather a warning off of evil spirits. It’s a protective gesture against evil or darkness and illness.”
Is he smirking? Maybe it’s a weird joke or dare? Is Harry just quietly throwing the classic heavy metal ‘devil horns’ to silently voice an opinion about Melania and/or The Trumps?
Either way it is obvious that he is intentionally flashing this hand gesture. The question is why?
Am I tripping?
According to metro.uk: “Conspiracy theorists such as David Vose believe that the ‘horns’ signal is just one of the ways our Illuminati masters communicate with each other.” Either way Melania seems clueless.
So many questions and no one to answer. Social media dug up an old photo of former U.S. president George “Dub-Yuh” Bush flashing the same horn gesture, ironically during a photo op with Harry’s grandmother– Queen Elizabeth. What does it mean?
