Because the 96-year-old is about to pass the monumental £9 million mark, body language expert Darren Stanton analysed the Queen’s love of horses and the game, highlighting how her actions show how ‘down-to-earth’ she is. He said: “The Queen makes several interesting gestures and infrequently leans forward when watching her horses, which is an indication of great interest.
“When watching her horse win, she has probably the most real and fascinating expressions of enjoyment on her face. The crows feet along side her eyes – which everyone possesses no matter age – are fully engaged showing that she is in a moment of most ecstatic joy.
“She also slams the palms of her hands down on the counter in front of her which again is a gesture we are likely to make when we’ve just witnessed something that we’re truly captivated with.

“She clasps her hands again, something that we do within the triumph of an achievement after which she makes a very great gesture. She leans back and puts out her chest, which is a gesture of pride and achievement.”
Stanton also highlighted a recent image of the Queen with two horses released to mark her 96th birthday. The image showcases the deep relationship she should have together with her horses, as ‘they know just who’s in charge’.
“Identical to with humans that may construct a connection and a bridge to other people when it comes to trust, integrity and openness, it is extremely normal for people to also construct the identical type of trust with animals, especially horses,” Stanton added. “
“It’s clear that the horses and the Queen have such a deep connection that she trusts them to not misbehave they usually accept the Queen is in charge, so it is extremely much what we call in psychology a ‘power pose’ that demonstrates the Queen’s high level of confidence in her horses.”
