I do not think that Samuel Chatto has yet been a Page of Honour to HM.
Edit - Samuel may now be too old (and too tall)

Here is a picture with Charles Armstrong-Jones (far left) and Arthur Chatto (far right) as Pages of Honour at the 2012 State Opening of Parliament.

The second is of Arthur Chatto at the 2012 Service for theOrder of the Thistle.

Someone , further back int this thread, asked about whether or not the Duke of Edinburgh extended any more formal curtesies to foreign monarchs.

Here is the link to a YouTube clip where HRH gives a definite neck bow to the King of Bahrain when he visited the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

Sure she had her wild side (tongue piercing comes to mind), but I can see her, and her cousins, continuing their family greetings - especially those who grew up during the life of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
Zara, even as a wild child observed the courtesies of life, so Charles got a curtsey (which I saw on a video the year she was filmed doing this), kiss and hug, and then she promptly sat on his knee!

I love that they are all a lot closer than people give them credit for. Those photos of Harry and the Chatto lads are more than an eye opener for those that think the extended family don't really even know each other.

But the difference is that your grandparents are not a queen and her consort. The British Royal Family has their own customs and dynamics as a family.

Sincerely, I don't think it's up to anyone to say if it's okay or not for The Queen's grandchildren to bow and curtsey to her or not.

Bowing and Curtseying

Every family has their own customs. When greeting my dearly beloved great-grandmother, one of the kindest and most self-effacing people I've met we always first shook her hand before being warmly embraced by her. It was very old-fashioned but just the way it was done.

Surely the children/grandchildren/other relatives are greeting senior royals both personally (kiss/hug) and for their rank (bow/head bow or curtsey)

I watched the PoW/Duchess of Cornwall trip to Ireland today and both the grandson of Mountbatten (?Knatchbull) and his wife kissed and then head bow/curtseyed to Charles and Camilla.

This is their norm. It indicates personal relationship and then respect for their position.

I like it.

From what I have seen this is usually the norm - especially when royals are greeting family or other royals with which they have a close relationship.

It is usually (for the ladies) a kiss on both cheeks, a kiss on the back of the hand and then a curtsy or neck-bow.

For the men, a handshake, perhaps the double kiss if they are very close, and then a neck-bow.

If you watch coverage of the Diamond Jubilee Monarchs Lunch arrivals you can see the European Royals greet each other more closely than say the Middle-Eastern or African royals.

There is a good clip earlier in the thread but I could not quickly track it down.

Such a great video. Plus it gives everyone another chance to see the queen of Swaziland's shoes!

Mette-Marit seems to like curtsying as she did it even to President Obama!

As a general rule, bowing and curtsying to the royals is now rarely used by the general public in Belgium, the Netherlands, or Sweden, but members of other royal families still routinely bow/curtsy to the Belgian, Dutch or Swedish king and queen consort. I recall for example William and Kate bowing/curtsying to King Philippe and Queen Mathilde in the recent celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I in Belgium and CP Mary of Denmark curtsied to Willem-Alexander and Maxima in their recent state vist to Copenhaguen.

In the SVT video of Carl Philip's wedding, you can also see Sophie and Edward curtsying/bowing to King Carl Gustaf when he enters the church.
