I always liked the Queen's wave; regal and minimal with a swivel motion just at the wrist.

Pictures of Princess Margaret giving off her regal wave:
It's not a title, it's an appellation.

I always thought the minimal motion of the Windsors' wave was more of an age thing that just got passed down. Photography in Queen Mary's day was much more primative that it is now (holding still, longer exposers, etc). I assumed the minimal wave was so that there were no blurry hands in the photographs. I do love Queen Margarethe's wave - it's a back-to-front motion instead of a side-to-side motion.

This is my new favorite photo of ERII. Some things not only stand the test of time - but show no time has passed at all. She has exactly the same sparkle in her eyes as she does today. Thanks for sharing this.

I agree, The Queen still have that special twinkle in her eyes.

I just liked the style of the old school royal waves.

King George VI's wave was quite unusual. Hand up in the air and a twist as if he was unscrewing a globe from a light socket.

Queen Margrethe has the best royal wave. The move seems to start from the elbow with a slightly moving hand. The middle between a greeting and a waving.

George and Charlotte have the most adorable waves.

I love the late King's waves. I wonder if Charles will adopt his wave once he's King?

The Queen's waves used to be very elegant back in the day. She has since changed it though. Not for the better.

The Duchess of Cambridge is kinda shy with her waves. Too quick and brief, IMO.

The Queen Mother and Princess Margaret had the best royal waves, IMO.
