By. If this isn't right please correct me'!::
Just look below at #1031, the picture is there.

I'm not sure why there's so much speculation on who in the royal family bowed their head when Diana's coffin passed. You can view the entire funeral on YouTube. Here's the relevant portion: http://youtu.be/wyYWPpk2ueM

I am surprised that Margaret would curtsey to Diana after the divorce, when Diana was no longer HRH!

Does anyone have other footage of someone curtseying to the Duchess of Cambridge? I found one from the ceremony today. A little girl curtsied to her; very cute. See here: YouTube - ‪Royals visit regiment‬‏

Honestly,I can't stand the thought of curtsying,not even bowing to a royal.Just because there royal does not mean there no more important than anyone else.

My feeling is:

Get rid of curtsies and other nonsense.

British Protocol and Etiquette

Hi all,

I understand the protocol which the Palace dictates but I have a question.

The idea of a neck bow was not always so. Especially to a female Member of the Royal Family. It was a kiss of the hand (whether it be touching the skin or stopping before touching the skin) or to a ring. And in cases for the Royal Family in general it was the 'bow and scrape' bowing while drawing the right foot backwards placing the left arm on your chest and extending the right arm outwards.

Can this still be done? It is historical and was traditional? Does it need to be a handshake or a neck bow, also the curtsies were very low.

Many thanks for sharing. That was a hoot! The Queen Mum looked pretty good the last summer of her life.

Anne might be curtseying to Queen Sonja of Norway but I'm not entirely sure.

Meet and greet between King and 'Crown Prince'

An interesting picture of the King of Bhutan and the Prince of Wales greeting each other in London, November 24...
...a slight bow and two-handed handshake from HM, and a deferential bow of the head from HRH.

-> King of Bhutan & POW
