Camilla was properly bashed by some because she's not able anymore to do those low curtseys. But she has some well known back problems and clearly has not the same fitness than her in laws...
]Yes, osteoporosis is a family problem with both her mother and grandmother living in chronic pain and dying from its complications.

I remember Zara showing how it was done and seeing Anne curtsey it's easy to see who taught her and how well.

Well said. I am not a fan of curtseys but this one with the full on eye contact between the older Princess (albeit Princess Royal) and the younger King delighted me no end. It may be my favorite curtsey ever.
And I also am amazed at her ability to pull this off. In fact, I'm going to take the photo to my yoga instructor and ask her to help me get to that level.

Wow, that's the deepest I've seen Anne curtsy since her wedding, before she and Mark left the Abbey! (which was 17 years before I was born, but I have seen video footage.)

FYI Nico, she will be 67 a month tomorrow.

By the way, does anyone have any other pics of Princess Anne curtsying? (besides her wedding of course, and the ones of her curtsying to Harald and Sonja.)

Not everyone can make a deep curtsy, issues like health, weight and practice makes a big difference.

Camilla is not a young woman, she's got well known back problems and she didn't learn how to curtsy from the craddle like Anne did.

The reverence by the Princess Royal is half-half failed, but not her fault. Du moment that she went down her knees, the towering King -as is the use in Spain- brought her hand to his lips. That caused that her arm was almost straight up while she was deep down. In this case the King had to wait for Anne to complete her curtsey, followed by the handkiss.

I agree. It's always men's fault!

(Apologies to the forum's men in repeating a well known male sexism as a joke)

There was a pic buried somewhere in this thread of Anne curtseying the King and Queen of Norway for their joint birthday celebrations. Same depth. Too tired to dig it now..

It's on page 22, if that's the one you're thinking of. Any others?

Picture from photoshot!
It was indeed page 22! The Princess Royal is a really a hard act to follow, this one is just as deep as her wedding curtsey and that to King Felipe.

She is probably the last of an era where a curtsey is courtesy and doesn't provoke screeds of "Oh I wouldn't degrade myself like that.

It was nice that Princess Anne, Princess Royal curtsy to their Majesties.

Hopefully, Anne curtsies to her parents, and her elder brother, Charles.


I wonder if Beatrice and Eugenie bow to their aunt Anne? I wonder if Beatrice and Eugenie bow to their uncle Edward?

No, Beatrice and Eugenie are princesses of the blood royal, HRH's alike their aunt and uncles. And a reverence is always optional, never an obligation. For me -a conservative royalist- curtsies better should be abolished. I found it very awkward to see a royalborn Anne going through her knees for the girl-next-door.

Reverences worked since ladies like Sofía, Frederika, Joséphine-Charlotte, etc. were princesses of the blood royal themselves. These times are over. It was equally awkward to see former newsreader Letizia going through her knees for former banker Máxima. Then it has become a vaudeville, a part of the "oh yes, let us pretend I am higher born and you go down the knees for me"-play.

Better do it like Wimbledon: end the circus. I love traditions but these need to have a real meaning. What is next? The Princess Royal going down her knees for a former waitress from Kristiansand?

There's also this one; 2:15 into the video.

I have never seen members of the BRF bow or curtsey to anyone other than the Queen, Philip, Charles and Camilla. IMO after the Sovereign + spouse, Heir + spouse it just gets ridiculous
