I am surprised to see that Princess Haya gave HM a kiss on the cheek and got away with it.

I remember when Ernst August did the same thing and was crucified by the british media for lack of respect. Or Michelle Obama, whe she touched HM on the shoulder:

If I remember correctly Haya has always been curtseying to the Queen then a kiss on the cheek. I think it could be the different closeness of them to the Queen. It's said the Sheikh Mohammed and Princess Haya are close to the Queen therefore I think the curtseying is for respect and the kiss for their friendship.

True, cause Haya just gave her one kiss then the Queen kissed her twice, so the Queen wasn't against it.

I think it was a very sweet gesture and it`s also different if a man or o woman gives her a kiss on the cheek...I still don`t understand why the media made such a fuss about Michelle Obamas touch on the shoulder... even the queen is a human being and I think everybody needs to be hugged or touched sometimes ( I am not referring to anything sexual) and kissing cheeks or hugging is a very normal action in Europe between people who know each other.They always give cheek-kisses in France even if you just met somebody.
btw, I think Haya looked great in that outfit:-)

Actually, in the first pic you can clearly see from the expression on the Queen's face and the way she's leaning forward that she's about to kiss Haya.
As for Ernst August, it has been mentioned in several places on this forum that he was allowed to kiss the Queen because they're related.

thanks for the great pictures:-) To me this was Princess Hayas best European outfit ever (she has always chosen beautiful Arabic dresses/kaftans).I love everything from the flower to her shoes. I think big flowers are a real trend this summer as I´ve seen quite a few royals and celebrities wearing them!

I thought Haya would be wearing a hat, seems not.
Quite nice how Haya is in a polka dress and Sheikh Mohammed in a polka dot tie.

I remember when Ernst August did the same thing and was crucified by the british media for lack of respect. Or Michelle Obama, whe she touched HM on the shoulder:
Princess Haya is the daughter of a King who was a friend of The Queen and she's married to a Sheikh who is a friend of the Queen. Plus she's in the FEI in which The Princess Royal is involved.

Prince Ernst of Hanover is only distantly related to The Queen, it was George III who was the first Hanoverian British King and that's way back in the 18th century. He's married to Princess Caroline of Monaco and since HSH Princess Grace dies they are seen by many as a bit too Eurotrash Hello! for many Brits.

Some people will see First Lady's gesture to The Queen as disrespectful. It's got nothing to do with colour, just protocol and I think it would be the stuffier people who think that.

Princess Haya looks lovely with this big "My Fair Lady"-inspired hat, the colour red suits her very well too. I could not see any of Sheikh Mohammed´s children, isn´t he accompanied by some of his sons (or daughters)? We have seen Sheikh Hamdan,Rashid,Mansoor and Majid at the Royal Epsom in the past, but in the photos above I did not see any of them which is rather unusual.

Now we know that the men´s hats are made of silk, I always believed they were made of some type of fine wool:-)
