http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/multim...dP_300137c.jpg. With the Queen in 1980.
http://img.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/200...ES_468x580.jpg Her fraility did reduce the depth but didnt stop her from curtseying. Cherie Blair should be ashamed.
http://watermarked.heritage-images.com/2322221.jpg. Damn she was kneeling down in front of QM..
http://watermarked.heritage-images.com/1652008.jpg. I somehow didnt like her curtseying to Princess Margaret..A self-made PM and a PlayGirl Princess..
And this is a video of Thatcher receiving Queen and DoE at No.10

There was a documentary on all the PMs with Queen, which I am not able to recall. That showed a beautiful clip of Thatcher curtseying the Queen and wishing her "Good Evening, Your Majesty" in a soft, mellow voice..

It was very nicely done! In the video it's a quick dip - rather than an overblown moment.

When Fergie came to visit a local mall here to sell her Wedgwood I went to go see her. Some lady brought her little girl, all dressed up, and had her sweep into the most beautiful curtsey I have ever seen.

It was truly one of the most ridiculous things I have ever witnessed.

Despite Sarah losing her HRH title, I guess some people will still curtsey to her if they feel like it.

I thought that was a very nice curtsey the lady gave William, Catherine and Harry.

The woman who was doing the curtsey is Dione Grimston, Countess of Verulam, in her capacity as Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire.

I donno, I think if I was a parent bringing my kid to meet someone like Sarah I'd tell her that Sarah's a real princess and let her get all dolled up and do a curtesy. Think how much it meant for the kid to do that. In that kind of situation it's really not so much about Sarah as it is about the kid's interpretation or understanding of it.

In the Netherlands, Wilhelmina couldn't ban curtseying and bowing in every country.
