Queen Sofia gave Letizia her foulard, since it was a quite cold evening and then loanes of "pregnancy-romours" appear

Do Cristina & Elena have to curtsey to Letizia? I know they will when Felipe & Letizia become King & Queen but as of right now do they? I would assume they would in public since Felipe & Letizia are "higher ranking", but I've never been sure

Many, many , many thanks, dearest friend for your "straight collabration".

If I have understood the spanish protocole the Infantas have to curtesy the Princess of Asturias, even if Letizia is not a PRINNCESS OF BLOOD but may be I'm wrong.

In every case, I have observed,for example, at the arrival of Laureus Prize that the Infanta Cristani and her husband who were the first to arrive have passed behind the Princes before their own arrival.

I've never seen either Elena or Cristina curstey to Letizia, and as far as I know as long as she's not the Queen they don't have to do, in fact I've only seen them curtseying to Kings and Queens not even Crown Princes and Princesses; please correct me if I'm wrong

Of course. She didn't curtsy not just because she didn't have to, but because she wasn't allowed to. WHY? Because, according to protocol and common sense, Heads of State, whether monarchs or presidents, are equal, since they are both, at a given time, the ceremonial symbols of their respective nations. Thus, to the same extent that it would be inappropriate for Italy (the nation) to curtsy to Great Britain (the nation), the respective heads of state (or their spouses) cannot do so either. For completeness, it may be argued that in most countries, there is no constitutional provision for the status of a president's spouse. However, common sense indicates that the dignity and status of a president's spouse is intertwined with that of the Head of State and, indirectly, with that of the nation.
In the above example, had the Italian President's wife curtsied to the Queen of Great Britain, the faux pas would perhaps have caused the resignation of both the President and the Government.

Don't we all need to think before we talk!

I didn't said that the Infantas have to courtesy the Princess of Asturias.

I reformulate my sentence, if the Infantas have to courtesy the Prince of Asturias es quality( I'm not sure because they are " Princesses du Sang ")they have to do it with his wife. It's obvious that if the Infantas don't courtesying the Prince of Asturias, they don't have to courtesy to the Princess ( C.Q.F.D)

At the opposite,the Infantas will courtesying the Queen, that it's sure, have to look the Infantas PIlar and Margarita withe the Kings.

I don't recall to see brothers curtseying or bowing to their Heir of the Throne. That's why I never thought Infantas of Spain should do it to Prince Felipe or Princess Letizia.

My favourite picture on curtseying and bowing goes to (then) Mette-Marit Tjessem Hoib. When I first saw that picture I thought it as an admission test she passed over 20 :). Everything was perfect - the occasion, the dress, and The Queen she's curtseying to... I remember thinking "There you go. Show them you are a true princess!" and the smile on Queen's face like she was thinking the same . GREAT!

As for tender gestures while curtseying goes to Princess Letizia and Swedish Royal Family - I just love the tender gestures that Queen Sylvia and Princess Victoria dedicated her.

Regards,
mtbcm :)

I don't think that bowing and curtsying is done very much in the Netherlands, not even by the Royal Family.

I noticed that the Dutch Royals are curtseying in front of the Flag of Orage-Nassau (???). Even the Queen.
Does anyone know more about it?

I noticed it on the wedding of WA and Maxima, and also on the funeral of Prince Claus first that all Royal Guest stopped in front of the Flag and "greeted" it. So they nodded their had or made a kind of bow.

I was wandering the same. And do you know why all Spanish ladies, esp. Letizia and both Infantas curtsey much deeper than other royals? At least that was my observation
