That is true of the Catholic Church because we believe that Christ is present in the tabernacle at the altar. I wasn't aware that it is practiced in Protestant religions, as well. In fact, I make a point of NOT genuflecting when I visit another house if worship. I'm pretty sure she was curtsying to the royals. Notice that the King didn't bow his head because be outranked everyone present (excluding The Lord, of course).

Yes, I think so because she & the Crown Prince of Japan are equal in rank.

It seem strange to me a woman in purple dress didn't curtsey to Prince of Wales & Duchess of Cornwall, but curtseys to his sons.

See the video: Princes William and Harry join a smiling Charles and Camilla at the Duke of Edinburgh's hospital bedside | Mail Online

In the photo of Prince Charles that is below the video, Camilla & the woman are in the background & the woman is clearly curtseying to Camilla.

The moment I saw the video I knew for sure someone will mistaken it for curtsey. It was just to reach him due to height difference. The same happend when QM2 was greeting QE2 at Jubilee lucheon..

The best dress to curtsy in is an A-line dress that is knee-length or longer, especially floor-length. The straight up-and-down ones are SO uncomfortable to walk in. I much prefer one with a bit of flare. You should practice your curtsies in front of a floor-length mirror, so you get the idea.

This is really incredibly cute
I was wondering how long he could hold on to the flowers until it got too much and he had to give them to his attendant
