Would Grand Duchess MT and Grand Duke Henri bow to the kings and queens? Or would they not have to since they are also leaders of a country?

I'm not sure. In theory because they are both Sovereign royals they should be equal but the title disparity maight mean that they have to.

As a rule Reigning Monarchs don't bow/curtsey to other Reigning Monarchs.
In their positions as Reigning Monarchs, Prince Hans Adam, Grand Duke Henri, Queen Elizabeth II and Emperor Hirohito are 'equal'.

They do in an official capacity, ie: In public.

I think it was either Queen Elizabeth or King George VI who did away with the practice of monarchs having to be bowed/curtseyed to by their children. However, a King or Queen is of higher rank than a Prince or Princess so Princess Diana curtseyed to King Juan Carlos of Spain.

Not entirely true, I don't believe. I was watching video of Princess Anne's wedding, and as her and Capt. Philips were leaving the Abbey, she curtsied to her mother. Andrew bowed to his mother after his wedding with Sarah Ferguson.

At official events like that, I believe they do bow/curtsy, but I don't think they'd do it she just walked into a room at the family home.

It's tradition that the new married couple bow to the present Queen and/or King (Duke of Edinburgh/Prince Henrik).
Prince Charles and Camilla did it to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip in 2005.
Prince Frederik & Princess Mary, Prince Joachim & Princess Marie did it to Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik at there respective weddings.
At official events, like Sister Morphine says, they probably will curtsey/bow but not everday.

I have to make some pertinent corrections to the above concerning British court protocol. All princes and princesses of the blood and their spouses bow or curtsey to the soverign; a prince or princess does not bow to Prince Philip - he is not a constitutional prince consort. Although the current royal family and a few remaining families adhere to the tradition of kissing (something the late Queen Mother didn't like, but then she was from a landed coal owning aristocratic and not a royal background) the hand of a lady of rank, kissing her left cheek if a close friend, and kissing both cheeks if a kinswoman; doing all three if she is a close kinswoman of high rank. The misplaced political correctness of the established elite thinks it fine not to bow or curtsey. Quaint custom? Next week a new Prime Minister will be appointed by the Queen and believe me if he were not to kiss hands then that would be a constitutional crisis. Perhaps those seeking power have always been prepared to bow the knee!

He's a prince of the blood by birth. Doesn't that imply a position of respect?

But you don't have to curtsey to someone with the same title as you, no?

No, to my knowledge you don't. However Philip is the consort to the Queen, not just any Prince. So I wouldn't expect CP Haakon to bow to CP Frederik, but I would think he would to Frederik's father, the consort of the Queen of Denmark.


I hope that makes sense.

Surely, apart from the straight protocol-rules, there are non-official rules too?
I cannot imagine CPs' Frederic of Haakon NOT making a (small) bow to eg. prince Charles.
And if some some horrible reason CP Victoria became Queen tomorrow, she would still curtsey to Queen Elizabeth.
Age and respect for a person, surely influences these rules too.

Any ideas about that? :)
