In the British royal weddings I understand that the new couple bows and curtsey while leaving the church not when arriving, in opposition to the other countries, like Spain or Denmark when the do it arriving.
But I have the impression that Harry and Meghan didn't do at all, I'm wrong?

Yes, just missed it, many did. They curtseyed/bowed when they came back from signing the registrar. Unfortunately the only camera on them when they did, was an aerial shot so it wasn't easy to see.

Thanks. I was thinking that it was not possible they did not

I assume they must have other shot from other angle and I hope they are editing it and will upload it to the royal family YT channel as they just took down the live video on YT.

Here are some curtsies from other royal brides:
Mette Marit: https://youtu.be/DorodTW9nlI?t=1m46s
Mary: https://youtu.be/h_yLKhKIyS0?t=6m45s
Victoria: https://youtu.be/c-h2WKtoOzo?t=4m2s
Madeleine: https://youtu.be/EUpRV6h-Uw8?t=5m1s (another worst angle from the back)
Stephanie: https://youtu.be/rCGIcQhDvH8?t=54m14s (it's more like a bow?)

I am not sure about that but I guess Benelux doesn't have the tradition of curtsying even in wedding? I don't find any video of Maxima and Mathilde.

Could it have something to do with that the couples were already married at the time of the church wedding? They'd had the legally binding civil service earlier in the day so both of the brides were already members of the Royal family.

Harry bowed his head and Meghan curtsied. The camera angle was from over head and right as they starting doing it they cut away from the couple.

I had hoped there would be a still shot, but it looks like a no on that as well.

They all did it at the beginning before they were handed off; who were they curtsying to?

Sorry but I still don't see the exact moment. For Charles and Diana, Andrew and Sarah, William and Kate the moment was clear, when the married couple started leaving the church. Here not.

Immediately after "God Save the Queen" before they start moving for the recessional.

I think they are for the monarchs (or specifically to their monarch), Mette Marit and Mary only curtsied to the right side as the monarchs sat there (respectively right in front of Harald and Margrethe), and Victoria curtsied to both side as the monarchs sat on both sides. But I am not sure about Stephanie's as the royal guests sat on the left side and she bowed to both side.

The Scandinavians actually bow and curtsy twice, after they enter the church and before they leave.

All because of the aerial shot, Meghan's curtsy wasn't showed clearly but it is pretty clear that Harry bowed his head.

Thanks I managed to "guess" the moment with your help.
