Bowing and Curtseying

What happened was Katharine's train dragged on the carpet, so she had to "take a step back into the folds of her gown, thus releasing the tension on her train, and with her head slightly bowed, perform her act of homage."

I thought you took a step back and bowed your head when you curtsied anyway? I always did to my piano teacher during my lessons this year. One foot behind, knees bend, head bowed. That's how I do it.

You can curtsey or bow to anyone. With or without the predicate HRH... It is all optional and never an obligation. There are also royals who feel unpleasant or uncomfortable receiving a curtsey or a bow, then reacting like: no, no, you don't need to..., why are you going down for me...? I think most royals just prefer a normal handshake.

Indeed. In fact, there is a gentleman who works in the catering area at my company who bows to me every time he sees me- and I curtsey in return.

It's an inside joke and a lot of fun.
