I was wondering: is there a proper technique of curtseying? which foot has to be put behind before bending: the right or the left one? because I see pictures of princesses doing it in different ways and I read many articles about the subject but they confused me even more. I mean...I thought certain etiquette rules and technique were universally applied.

Charlene is just a Serene Higness and not a Majesty, and in top of that she is much much younger, so she pays respect to the Queen.
The question is, should a former King bow to an actual King?
in example does former King Kostantin bow to King JC???

I don't think King Constantine bows to King Juan Carlos...that is because they're brothers in law

Family bonds have nothing to do with protocol rules! All the Crown Princes bow to their royal parents.
And as it was said before, Pcws Margaret bowed to the Queen EII.

I know that but some families have more strict rules than other...Princess Benedicte never curtsey to her royal sister Queen Margrethe. and any way...i don't think former monarchs bow/curtsey to the current ones. as I said in a previous post what matters is their style of Majesties rather than their position as Head of state

I saw a pic of (then) Princess Sofia curtsying to her sister in law Queen Anna Maria. So family ties has nothing to do with it. Only rank. When Sofia became Queen, the curtsying stopped.

No he wouldn't as ex-King Constantine is still regarded as a King in royal circles.

I've seen photos of The Princess of Asturias & Spanish Infantas curtsying to Constantine II & Anne Marie of Denmark.

They're still equal in rank and title, despite Constantine being a deposed monarch, so he wouldn't bow to any monarch. If he did so to perhaps Queen Elizabeth, that's as a matter of courtesy and respect, I would think.

BRF: Never seen any member of The RF bow/curtsey to Prince Philip.. except for the little bend kate did on Balcony on Trooping in 2011.May be he is cool with that.

Here's video from the arrival of the family to the chapel for Prince George's christening. There's an amusing air-kiss and curtsey from Camilla to HM, a very formal bow from Harry, and a little later, Kate doing a little curtsey when greeting Phillip.



I especially like the warm greeting between Phillip and Charles. I know they haven't had the easiest relationship, but hopefully it's mellowed as everyone's gotten older.

My personal favourite was watching Camilla greeting Prince Phillip. How when she asked how he was, she also gave him that little pat/light slap on his shoulder, like she was also saying "Are you behaving yourself?" In a light hearted way. One of my favourite moments of the day that we got see.

Um, excuse me, but, why did Charlene curtsey to him? He is not royal. He is a priest. Dont get it. Just wondering since I have never seen QEII do it ever.

If we ever see QEII curtsey to a Catholic Archbishop, I will die of shock.

I don't think that occasion had anything to do with royal status or protocol but probably just out of respect for a priest of her faith.

We wouldn't see QEII do that for obvious reasons, but we also wouldn't see her curtesy to an Anglican Archbishop as well because she's the head of the church - it would be like the pope bowing to a cardinal.

I agree with you 100% here but the more I see of the Pope, it wouldn't surprise me if he did bow to anyone he meets come to think of it. Its a personal way of showing respect for another. With QEII, it all about being Queen and protocol though. There are just things that the Queen never does and things that are expected protocol wise from people that are around her. I would imagine that in personal prayer, she does kneel which also is a way of showing respect for her God.
