Now that's a true court curtsey; you don't really see that type of obeisance anymore! Thanks for the pic, LadyFinn.

Nice one, but IMO, bending spoils the curtsey. Back should be straight..Then it will be a beautiful one..

It's up to members of the public and other officials to bow and curtsey to Prince George when they meet him, if they like. Members of the royal family only bow and curtsey to The Queen and sometimes to The Duke of Edinburgh.

To be practical, no one will curtsey him until atleast he becomes Prince of Wales..
Then as PoW, maybe one in twenty will do that..
And when he becomes King one in ten will bow or curtsey him..
How did I come to this figure? Just a few videos of the number of people bowing/curtseying the Queen.. This dismal fraction will keep dwindling more rapidly due to the silly "modern British" who mistake tradition for subservience.
And regarding royals..no one will bow/curtsey him till the moment he becomes King. From then every royal, British/foreign (other than monarchs&consorts) will duly bow/curtsey him..
And as for his mother, she will curtsey him just at his coronation, thats it..

Once he gets older, some people most likely will curtsey and bow to Prince George as he's third in line to the throne and a senior royal. I don't think he have to be the Prince of Wales and King for it to happen. His uncle-Prince Harry-is forth in line and some people curtsey and bow to him.

It is just your wishful over-optimism, Dman. No one will care to bow/curtsey him when he is 20 or 30-something..
And do people curtsey Harry? Really? I am pleasantly surprised.. Then the Queen must be jealous of him..lol

I would think only in more formal situations does this happen much at all to any royal unless it's someone who is of the older generation doing the curtseying....are young people/children still being taught to curtsey in the U.K.?

When I was a child, I wasn't taught how to curtsey and if I recall, none of my friends were. With the exception of royal and possibly aristocratic children; nowadays, I think that most children and young people in the UK aren't taught how to curtsey. Some children who attend drama classes are taught how to bow, as usually you bow at the end of a play.

It was a deliberate gesture. I think by now most of us have come to the realization that Pope Francis is not a very conventional pope.

Pope breaks with protocol by bowing to Queen Rania of Jordan - Telegraph

Maybe also an attempt to repair some of the damage caused by his predecessor's somewhat mediaeval attitude to Islam.

Maybe because he wants to show his respect,appreciates her humanitarian work and admires her personality.
Bowing and courtseying is a sign of respect, this is not limited to royals and people in showbusiness
Judging from what I know & heard about him, I am sure Pope Francis would not bow to a Queen or any aristocrat just because they have a royal title.

Yes and like Warren said, Rania being a Muslim queen has something to do with it as well. Although Pope Benedict visited Jordan in 2009, relations between the Muslim world and the Vatican weren't too cordial during his papacy (unlike his predecessor John Paul II who really was the first to reach out to the Islamic community and began to reverse his church's archaic attitude towards the religion).

Clips:
King Fredrick and Queen Ingrid of Demmark are greeted by the Royal Family on their arrival in London at Victoria station to attend the Festival of Britain - 1951-
Gloria Ex Amore Patriae

You can see then Princess Elizabeth, Princess Margaret and The Duchess of Gloucester curtsey to The King & Queen. Not very low curtsies but nice dips.
