When Charles and Anne were little, Queen Mary expected Charles to bow and Anne to curtsy to her. Charles gladly obliged; Anne rebelled. I also read that Anne rebelled against curtsying to her mother every morning as a teenager.

Even the duchess of Cambridge must bend - World - Macleans.ca

According to Rafal Heydel-Mankoo, co-editor of Burke’s Peerage & Gentry, Catherine's high profile throughout the Diamond Jubilee is a testament to how serious the Queen is about the new royal’s place within the Windsor family. It’s clear, says Heydel-Mankoo, “that the duchess of Cambridge is about as close to the heart of the monarchy as it is possible to be.”

Queen Elizabeth II (The then Princess) curtseying..

Does anybody have a link or atleast seen a picture or video of Queen Elizabeth II curtseying to any foreign royals before her accesion? Or even her own parents?
I could not get such a thing anywhere..She went lucky, remaining as the one who got bows/curtseys her entire life but there is nowhere to show she herself doing that when she was a Princess...
And did anybody see the "Vintage Videos of Royal Family 1950-52"..When she and Duke of Edinburgh return from a visit to US and Canada..Then the Queen Elizabeth, Princess Margaret and Prince Charles come to railway station to receive them..Princess Elizabeth DID NOT curtsey to her mother, who is the Queen Consort..wasnt it an error of protocol..

I'm pretty sure I've seen pictures of Queen Elizabeth curtseying to her parents.
As for foreign royals, here is a picture of the Queen (then Princess Elizabeth) curtseying to King Haakon VII of Norway).

I haven't seen the videos you describe, but by protocol, Princess Elizabeth should have curtseyed to the Queen Consort of the time.
However, since it was a non-official, family affair, protocol was not observed.

Technically, a Queen Regnant (as a Monarch and Head of State) outranks a Queen Consort (the wife of a Monarch). The difference is basically the same as First Lady (wife of a President) and a female President in her own right.

Between two Queens Regnant, the age is immaterial; as with all Heads of State (elected and Hereditary), precedence is determined by the date of accession to the Throne. Thus, Queen Elizabeth has the highest precedence of all Heads of State bar the King of Thailand.

As a rule, Queens (consort and regnant) either both curtsey to each other (as Queen Frederika and Queen Anne Marie did), or don't curtsey at all (as is the custom nowadays.

This article states the only royals who are granted a curtsy are HM and the Duke of Edinburgh and that younger royals never curtsy to one another,

They don't indeed, not in our times and certainly not on private or semi-official occasions.
In fact, they don't curtsey to "older" (more senior) royals as well, such as the Duchess of Cornwall, the Prince of Wales or Princess Alexandra.

However, the younger royals do appear to curtsey to foreign royals who outrank them, regardless of age. Again, Kate curtseyed to pretty much all senior royals she met during the recent official events featuring foreign royals (like Diamond Jubilee Lunch).

Duke of Kent bowing..

Did anybody see the Duke of Kent bowing to Queen when she visited Wimbledon 2 years back..That part was cut in most videos..But I got to see it in one..

Instead of doing it like a "passing act" like others do (nodding, while shaking hands etc..) the Duke made a full stiff bow in attention before proceeding to greet HM

The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge curtsey and bow to the Queen and the Duchess has been seen curtseying to the Duke of Edinburgh but the royals really don't curtsey to each other. The British press even had the American media think Catherine's rank was pretty low in the family because it was said she had to bend before all the royals.

If I'm saying this right, I think The Duchess of Cambridge is the thrid or fourth lady of the land.

Yeah, you will often see members of the royal family bow and curtsey to The Queen before they personally greet her.

What about Princess Anne? I've seen her "curtsy before her mother, Her Majesty the Queen" in videos of both her wedding and Alexandra's; to the King and Queen of Norway (each on separate occasions), to Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands (although shielded by Diana), and in a video of Ascot. Are there any other occasions which I'm not aware of?

Can you tell me the link or title of the video of her curtseying Camilla at Ascot and King Harald..I have never seen any videos of her curtseying (except wedding/Beatrix state visit)

I strongly feel a curtsey can never be appreciated fully in a pic..It has to be seen in total..with the full frame of the person..

You happy with Camilla's curtsies?

I am no way a Diana-fanatic-Camilla-basher..
But I seriously find her curtsies are far more less than impressive..
Saw her curtseying the Queen at Ascot walkabout once and at Royal Wedding..Absolutely no grace/beauty..A totally strange action..Just for the sake of doing..Something performed by confused onlookers in crowds when Queen passes by them..
It is not a good precedent to be set by a future Queen Consort..Every royal woman, right from Anne to Eugenie/Autumn, and even Kate does much better curtsies..
Maybe bcos she cant get it right now as she didnt have good 'practice' in her youth..lolz
