They may be her husband's aunt and uncle, but Princess Letizia knows that this will be expected.

I have a question. Why do some royal ladies hold on to both arms of the person they are curtseying to and other royal ladies just gently grasp the hand of the person they are curtseying to and do a quick (but reverent) dip? Is one a less formal way of doing it than the other? Or does it all depend upon the royal court & person doing it? Just curious and thanks in advance!

I think it may have something to do with the way they are originally greeted. Sometimes it is because they have hugged first, then they curtsey while still still half in the embrace. For example, there were photos of Princess Victoria of Sweden curtseying to Queen Sonia of Norway that showed the arm holding position. When you looked at the video you could see that it was because they had embraced first and were still hugging when Victoria gave a quick curtsey.

What are the protocols for a curtsey? Do the royals (and others) only curtsey at official functions or when in public but not at informal gatherings.

I was wondering if there are any photos of Charlene Wittstock curtseying? I don't think she has done so yet but she has met members of the Spanish Royal Family and the Dutch Royal Family at the Olympics and Princess Haya of Dubai. Is it because it was a more informal event that they only greet with a kiss and a hug?

Sorry for all the questions. Thanks

Yes, the ones of Princess Diana curtseying in the white shoes with the red toes (Rising Sun motif) is to the Japanese. Protocol dictated that she had to bob lower than eye level as a sign of respect. The look on her face shows great concentration and more than enough fear that she is going to fall. (not to mention the possible ripping of the hosiery! LOL!)

It's not "just a building" it's the House of God and the Bible says that a man must uncover his head and a woman must have hers covered.

And yet if someone who walks into the building a) isn't a Christian but visiting the building or b) isn't familiar with the scripture/has different Christian beliefs/etc it may not be rude. You wouldn't ask a Sikh man wearing a turban to remove it- it is probably part of their cultural and religious beliefs NOT to remove it. It's rude to YOU but that is YOUR belief and the beliefs of YOUR faith- that's the key with humanity everyone is entitled to an opinion. I've been in Church many, many times and few of the women I have run into EVER had their heads covered. Many men will remove their hats out of respect- but this is less religious and more everyday respect than religious respect, but still.
