Sophie Turner’s passionate PDA with Peregrine Pearson seems “one-sided”, and “all the kissing effort” comes from the aristocrat, a body language expert has said.
The couple were spotted kissing in Paris on Saturday, just weeks after the Game of Thrones star, 27, announced her split from husband Joe Jonas.
But body language expert Judi James told FEMAIL the loved-up exchange was “less convincing” from Sophie.
“She’s wearing a wide-brimmed cap and sunglasses, but she doesn’t seem to make any effort to tilt her head at a reciprocal angle, like you would for a romantic kiss,” the expert explained.
She smiles as Peregrine moves closer, but that might be awkward and if it looked like a romantic kiss response from him, she would have to tilt her head to compensate for the visor of the cap and the barriers of the sunglasses.

Meanwhile, Peregrine seems much more animated. “All the kissing effort came from Peregrine,” Judi said. “His feet are spread and planted and his right hand appears to be gripping Sophie’s upper arm quite firmly as he leans in.”
His head is also tilted, as he “appears to place a kiss on her chin or mouth.”
The differences are also visible in their grips. Sophie’s left arm is extended in “what feels like a hug”, while Peregrine “hugs her”.
“His own hand doesn’t seem to be touching him here at all,” the expert continued. “It looks like a greeting or goodbye ritual where one of them kissed each other full on the lips while Sophie’s reaction just seems polite.
“If we see that she tilted her head and reciprocated by touching his hand in other photos, the message might be different, but in these photos the effort appears to be one-sided.”
Outing: Just hours after the kiss, Sophie was seen smiling as she and Peregrine both arrived ahead of the Rugby World Cup final match between New Zealand and South Africa.

Judi also thinks the kiss feels “artificial.” “This should be a very important and important body language statement from Peregrine and Sophie, given her highly publicized split from Joe,” she said.
“Such public and contrived PDA would normally be seen as some sort of snub to the ex, as in the nonverbal statement “I’ve moved on,” but a close look at Peregrine’s role here and Sophie’s body answers linguistics suggest something quite different.
The couple was enjoying their passionate kiss near the Gare du Nord.
Sophie’s new beau Peregrine comes from an aristocratic family who A net value of more than £224 million.
In the photo, Sophie was seen cutting a stylish figure in an all-black ensemble and a red baseball cap.
Peregrine, who recently split from King Charles’ goddaughter, kept it casual in gray jeans and a dark jacket as he leaned in for a kiss.
The two men then separated in chauffeur-driven cars before meeting at the Stade de France, where Sophie unveiled the trophy.
According to The sun, an onlooker said: “They arrived together at the driver’s pick-up point outside the station. It looked like they had both come from London on the Eurostar.
“They stood there for a few minutes and talked and laughed a lot. He then took off his hat and leaned in to give her a big kiss. After the kiss, they separated.

“We look forward to being great co-parents,” the couple added.
While Jonas will take the girls on tour with his band The Jonas Brothers, Turner will spend Christmas with them in the UK with his family.
