Among the mourners who arrived at Westminster Abbey on September 19, there was President Andrzej Duda together with his wife. The celebrations were broadcast all over the world, and many photos appeared on the web, including those showing the Polish president. Many internet users pointed out that there was a wandering smile on our leader's face.
The body language expert referred to the situation, and in an interview with “Pleiada” he said that in the case of the Polish president, the smile on his face is “evidently a social smile”. According to the specialist, most likely there was a situation where the head of our state met someone he knew with his gaze.
“This is one of the smiles that we send as a message when, for example, at an official event we meet someone and we automatically try to smile at that person, “said Łukasz Kaca, adding that more than a smile, we were dealing here with a fleeting grimace. This is also indicated by the fact that the smile did not reach the eyes.
According to Kacy, it was a reflex and President Andrzej Duda immediately returned to a more neutral expression on his face.
