Wow, that IS deep! Looks more like a Texas dip than a regular curtsy!

That certainly does look like a Texas dip. That's definitely a "go big or go home" curtsey!

Bowing and Curtseying

We're doing pedal exercises in piano right now; we have to press down the damper pedal and let go at precisely the right time; then press down again. We're also doing whole note major and minor chromatic triads with the pedal which you only hold for two beats while keeping the pedal pressed down; letting go of the pedal at the end of the four beats and pressing back down at the next note. I told my teacher how it's like your hands and foot are doing a little curtsy (of course demonstrating what I was talking about by curtsying to her); and she laughed and said that was cute; she'd never thought of it like that before!

A very nice and deep curtsey from Autumn indeed.

So that's why they call it a curtsey car: Autumn Phillips kneels to the majestic driver of the Royal Range Rover - before making merry with her gorgeous girls-

This week we got into chromatic triads officially using the pedal and our teacher told the class how the down-up motion of your wrist is like your wrist is doing a little curtsy; without quoting me, but that's OK, we just got started, and we'll get into it more next week.

In The Royals, Kitty Kelley wrote:

The Queen greeted her grandmother as always: by kissing her on both cheeks and curtsying. Queen Mary frowned and shook her head, insisting that she be the one to pay homage. Despite crippling arthritis, she dropped in a deep curtsey to her twenty-five-year-old granddaughter, who was now her sovereign.

Princess Elizabeth had learned of her father's death and her elevation to the British throne while on safari in Africa.
She and Prince Philip returned to England.

After her marriage to Prince Andrew of Great Britain, Sarah the Duchess of York insisted on receiving public formalities from her family, which meant her father had to bow and her stepmother had to curtsy.
In Royal Romance, it was mentioned that after the wedding ceremony of Prince Edward of Kent and Katharine Worsley, Katharine curtsied to Queen Elizabeth II.

After the ceremony, the slow and elegant curtsey worked beautifully, and the Queen and Queen Mother, no doubt knowing the problems it had entailed, smiled their blessings warmly.
In Queen Victoria of England's afternoon presentations, a lord-in-waiting would carefully lay out the young lady debutantes' three meter trains with a wand.
The young lady's name would be announced as she entered.
She performed a carefully practiced curtsey and kissed Queen Victoria's hand.
Then the young lady exited backwards, curtseying all the way to the doorway.
At the end of the coronation service, the newly crowned Nicholas II and Alexandra of Russia walked from the church wearing brocaded mantles embroidered with the double-headed Imperial eagle.
They climbed the Red Stairway, turned and bowed three times to the crowd.

And then she said "Lilibet, your skirt is much too short for mourning!"

Queen Mary was unique. What a great lady.

Surely her mother had to curtsy as well!

This is the first time I have read of Sarah's OTT behavior. Was it too curtesy of Catty Kitty Kelly or some other reputeable source?

Yeah I don't buy that about Sarah requiring her family to curtsey....sounds like tabloid fodder.

I think that was one of these usual tabloid burp! inventions. Poor Sarah never had a good press. Honesty forces me to say, she often gave them a field day, of course.

I think that almost no one curtsies to the younger generation. Even at Wimbledon the curtsies have been gone, since years already.

Bowing and Curtseying

They changed the rules at Wimbledon. The players only have to bow and curtsey if the Queen or Prince of Wales are in the royal box.

Since Queen never hardly goes and Prince Charles may attend one day, you aren't going to see many.

Bowing ones head is a form of honour used by men and women towards someone who has died - just as the Queen does when she lays a wreath at the Cenotaph.

Bowing is also a form of greeting used by gentlemen. The female equivalent of a bow for greeting is the curtsey.

They are bowing in reverence at King Husain's tomb. There is no need for a complete full courtesy from the Crown Princess.
