A bow or a révérence is never customary and always optional. There are even royals who dislike all that bowing and sinking-down-the-knees and prefer a normal handshake.

Today when the Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Norfolk for her visit to EACH, the gentleman greeting her bowed and the ladies curtsied

I posted a video that shows her arrival in this thread

I thought that was interesting...I know it's not required, don't see it done all the time either.

She's not an HRH either...not sure how protocol works. She gets the HRH when William becomes the PoW right?

^^^She is HRH the Duchess of Cambridge. William's aunts are HRH The Princess Royal and HRH the Countess of Wessex. His royal female cousins are HRH Princess Beatrice of York and HRH Princess Eugenie of York.

If William and Edward had not received their current titles then their wives would be known as HRH the Princess William and HRH the Princess Edward.

She is a HRH.

Her full title is Her Royal Highness Princess William Arthur Philip Louis, Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn and Lady Carrickfergus.

One would assume that you meant compulsory and not customary. All bowing and curtseying is customary, as it is the custom.

Except that some of us live in countries where it is no longer custom. I was raised in a house where we bowed to show earned respect. You don't want to know what my Dad said about the custom.

Wouldn't Catherine be Princess William while Sophie would be The Princess Edward? Only the children of a monarch have The before the title prince or princess.

William is Prince William. When his father becomes king he will automatically be referred to as The Prince William (although he will generally be known by his title(s).

Interestingly, In the roll of the peerage at the House of Lords, William is recorded as -

HRH the Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, Duke of Cambridge

Without his peerage William would still be HRH Prince William of Wales, Kate then HRH Princess William of Wales. With the peerage, the territorial designation is lost and a The is gained.

Lol, Catherine has been an HRH since the very second she married William. Third lady in the land too.

I'm glad some folks do continue to curtsy these days. I've seen some American ladies do it and they never seem to get it right.

The Americans really only seeing curtsying in movies or tv not normally in real life since we are sans Royal Family here across the pond. They probably go down too far instead of a quick little dip. I watched a video on YouTube the palace official gave Katie Couric who was interviewing W&H for diamond jubilee a curtesy lesson before she met the Queen at a garden party.

Outside certain parts of the US that keep to older traditions Americans do not curtsey for any reason...so we have no background for it or reason to 'practice' it. I figure if an American even attempts it they should get credit for it.

Myself the only person I would kneel to would be the Holy Father.

Did the Duchess of Cambridge curtsy to the Queen and King of Bhutan?

I'd have been surpised if they hadn't. Bhutan is pretty traditional, and I don't see them doing away with the custom of bowing as some monarchies have.

There are many videos/picture of them with the King/Queen, but not when they greeted each other. I watched a live video from Bhutan Broadcasting Service, and I think they were the only broadcaster allowed inside the palace to cover the greetings. The live video (which are no longer available) was also posted in the Official Visit to Bhutan thread.
