Hi!

Just wanted to mention a fellow Kiwi - Hayley Westenra is only 16, and she has an amazing voice.

Teenage diva performs for Bush and Queen

22.11.2003

New Zealand teenage singing sensation Hayley Westenra has performed at a banquet hosted by United States President George Bush for the Queen and a group of select guests in London.

The 16-year-old sang as part of a half-hour musical show based on the works of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber at Winfield House in Regent Park.

Among the 60 guests were English Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife, Cherie, the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, actor Michael Caine and American Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Westenra, whose album Pure is No 7 on the British pop charts, performed four songs, including Pie Jesu and I Believe My Heart, a song from Lloyd Webber's new musical, Woman in White.

Mr Bush, who had his photograph taken with Westenra, told her she had an amazing voice and that her performance was a great end to the evening.

Westenra moved to London last year to record her international debut with Beatles producer Sir George Martin and has had invitations to play at the Classical Brit Awards and a party held by Victoria Beckham.

Recently she performed with Jose Carreras and Bryn Terfel in Wales and will appear on Michael Parkinson's Christmas show.

According to CNN, the Queen and Prince Philip made state visits to the USA in 1957, 1976 and 1991 (I assume the 1976 visit was timed to coincide with the bicentennial celebrations), as well as an official but not state visit to the US west coast during President Reagan's first term in office. There have been visits from various US presidents to the Queen, but the only one that was actually called a state visit was when George W. Bush visited in 2003.

No...we do not bow or curtsey to any royalty, nor is it expected of us to do so.

Fine if they wouldn't bow to Prince Charles, but to the Queen? The most nominal demonstration of courtesy in my view.

Observing Protocol

The American Government has advised its officials not to bow or curtsey to anyone, this I feel is extremly churlish and shows a lack of respect for the Sovereigns in the World.

We do not bow or curtsey, nor would ANY sovereign expect, an American to bow or curtsey to any Queen, King, etc.

It is not a sign of disrespect, and may I remind ALL of you on here that QEII has stated NO ONE has to bow or curtsey to her anymore.

HM would NEVER expect or require an American to bow or curtsey.

Well, HM has never said that herself. Her aides and those who advise on protocal have said it and now it's included in Debretts etc but it's still the social expectation that you should bow or curtsey. And I think thats how its always been - the Sovereigns couldnt care less but the people do.

Are you sure? When I met her for lunch last week and attempted to do so, she took my hand and said to me, "My dear, no need to do that. With your bad knees I would have to pull you back up and at my age that is not gonna happen!"

Lol...I love it when Sam responds..:)

Excuse me. Surely you said "If it may please Your Majesty, I want to curtsey and curtsey I shall."

This Palace statement was and still is considered by many to be one of the modernistic "get in touch with the peope" moves that has never really taken off, if you look a footage of the Queen 's Golden Jubilee the only people Her Majesty simled at when leaving St Paul's Cathedral were those who had the decency to Bow and Curtsey to Her.

Has anyone actually got the text of this statement? I've never seen it and I find it a little odd that HM would release such a statement. Her aides and staff members might tell people that they don't need to if they don't want to but I don't believe there was ever an official statement.

Sorry Darlin', at no point were we ever expected to bow or curtsey. People did so if they wished. I was in England for the Jubilee, in London, both nights for the Prom and the Party and then the Parade. When her car passed down the Mall both ways I did not notice a lot of people bowing or curtseying.

Just because you are British does not give you the right to imply a demand of Americans bowing or curtseying.
