The historic bond between the BBC and the Royals seemingly fractured on Monday, after the corporation aired the first episode of it's two-part series The Princes And The Press.
But Kate Middleton, 39, is clearly not letting the row affect her – with the future Queen looking "confident" and in high spirits when she visited Nower High School in Harrow on Wednesday.
Body language expert Judi James tells OK! the royal is "determined" to carry on and move past the "terrible row", hours after it emerged the Royals Christmas charity fundraiser will now be aired on ITV.
The Duchess was seen beaming when she joined pupils learning about neuroscience and the importance of early childhood development.
Judi told OK!: "Although there were clear signs of tension from both William and Kate following the Oprah interview, the current furore over the BBC documentary appears to have produced a sense of body language resilience from the couple, with signals bordering on firmness and confidence.
"There are no barrier or self-comfort rituals from Kate here and she looks determined to get on with the job."
The body language expert continued: "Her eye focus is clearly on the children she is visiting as though she has placed duty on a higher priority than conflict and frustration.
"Even her wave looks like a signal of the kind of stoic attitude that the Queen has always been known for and it could be the Queen that she is using as her role model when it comes to gritting your teeth and just getting on with things."
She went on to say that the Duchess appears to be firm but enthusiastic when she sat down with the children: "When Kate talks to the school children she almost adopts the body language of a teacher.
"Her gestures are animated and her listening skills are pronounced.
"When she makes a point she forms a steeple with her fingers with the index fingers raised, making her look firm and emphatic."

Judi concluded by adding that it would appear Kate and Wills aren't showing any signs of anxiety over the documentary, but instead they are showing signals of wanting to stand tall.
"If there are any clues to the effects of the documentary in both William and Kate’s body language recently the suggestion would be a desire to stand firm or even to fight back, rather than to signal anxiety or worry," she added.
Kate stunned in a vibrant pink coat and matching jumper with dark trousers and heels for the visit, while wearing her hair down.
The decision to drop Kate and William's documentary from the BBC came as a source said: "It was all arranged to be on BBC1 but it was switched in the last few days because of the terrible row over the documentary."
A source then told The Sun this could mean the Royal family may end up working with ITV more often: "This is a real coup for ITV. It is a brand new format — the royals have never hosted a televised TV concert before. And to have the Duchess leading on it is a big deal.
"Naturally most royal programming goes automatically to the BBC as the national broadcaster. Now it looks like they will work more with ITV in the future."
