Thank you. PASOK was in power then and there has been a lot of bad blood between those politicians and the GRF.
If I remember correctly the BRF included K Constantine and Q Anne Marie with the family members rather than the heads of State.
I remember for K Carl Gustav's wedding they placed Anne Marie on the 3rd row while K Constantine was placed on the 4th row of the royals section. He was very upset about it and it showed.

Wow! This picture seems so awkward. The expression on Mette Marit's face is very interesting.

I tried to google and look for the PDV but the google will not get me anywhere and PDV only has archives for the last 4 years. Please be patient and I promise I will get going asap.
So far I found the picture from the wedding of Prince Bertil showing him bowing and his bride curtseying to the King & Queen of Sweden but do not know how to bring the picture here to post it. I am still looking for the photo of Princess Diana curtseying to King Constantine.
I received the PDV of the wedding of Prince Joaqim and Marie Cavalier and it mentions that in Denmark a nod and a smile suffices in lieu of a curtsey but Queen Margrethe is of the old school........

Don't misunderstand me, please. I never said the contrary.

As for bowing/curtseying, it is not a faux pas for an American. It is considered polite to show knowledge of protocol, both foreign and domestic. The constitution has nothing to do with it.

That was very interesting Prince of Chota. I saw once in a biography of the Duchess of Windsor that they had mistaken her first husband´s name "Earl" for a title and said she had been married to a Count....
In Portugal there was a socialite who for some time appeared in the society magazines as Lady Betty.....but someone seems to have put them straight about this as I haven´t seen that for months.

As an American, we don't have leaders you bow/curtsy to. If I was meeting President Bush, I would merely shake his hand and say "Mr. President". That's it. If you did curtsy to the President, people would think you lost your mind.


Now if I was meeting the Queen of England, I would most certainly curtsy, as that is what you do when you meet royalty. You're certainly not obligated as no member of MI5 is going to bop you over the head with a cane if you don't, but it would appear quite rude not to and who wants to appear rude in public? I would hate for the Queen of England to think I was raised with no manners.

I don't view bowing/curtsying as submitting to anyone or showing that someone is superior to you or anything else like that. It's respectful. The same as you don't talk with your mouth full, belch at the table or say what you're going to the bathroom for when you get up from the table.

But it's only rude to those who believe it's rude. I personally don't see a problem with wearing a hat in church, it's just a building when all's said and done. Simarlarly, if someone chooses not to bow to a member of the Royal Family I don't see it as being rude, it's their choice.
