In certain parts of the south they did curtsey's for a long long time, even during most of the 1900's. Pretty sure the East Coast did as well. Lots of traditions came from the 'old country' to the Americas.

Its solely a matter of personal choice these days. Its basically a gesture of respect.

It IS 'optional', but most people adhere to it, often a courtesy to what they represent in the Nation, rather than as an obeisance to the actual individual themselves.

Same principal if you kneel or bend the knee to a member of the clergy, or the pope. It's more about the office they represent than the person holding the office.

It depends on the country. In the UK, Denmark and Spain, people usually curtsy to royals at public events. In Belgium and the Netherlands, they do not. In Sweden, people don’t normally curtsy either, but you may see it sporadically.

I've seen countless videos, and it just depends on the person. Not a lot of people curtsy to the British royals well except the Queen.

If this is the Easter service it could be that William & Kate had not arrived when the Queen had, there seemed a little bit of glancing around to see if they were on their way, glances at watches etc. It could be that simply distracted. Also its likely many of those present had been present in the Castle earlier so would have already curtseyed to the Queen then so were under less obligation to do so again. Or they simply forgot!

If they have already seen the Queen earlier in the day they would of already made their curtesy, no need to do it again.
