It's like in Game of Thrones when Shae bows to Queen Cersei and Cersei says "That's the worst curtsy I've ever seen. It's not difficult, I mastered it when I was four. Straighten your back and bend." It really is not that difficult; I don't know if I was that young, maybe six or seven.

Sam Smith was on Jimmy Fallon and said nerves got the better of him when he met Prince William. He did a full on 'Downton Abbey' style bow rather than just from the shoulders.

Sam Smith can't believe he took instructions to bow for Britain's Prince William so literally when he met the royal.

Sam Smith is mortified that he went for a full-on "Downton Abbey" bow when he met Britain's Prince William.

The British singer is a huge fan of the historical drama series, which followed the story of an upper class family and their group of servants and recently showed its final season. Unfortunately, this proved a sticking point when he met the royal at the premiere of James Bond movie Spectre, which he supplied the theme tune for, in London in October (15).

"My issues is that I watch too much Downton Abbey," he laughed to US talk show host Jimmy Fallon. "You get instructions, right, they say you've got to bow, with one arm behind your back. If someone tells you to bow - I properly went for it. I bowed."

Goodness, an old-fashioned, full court bow! Kudos for the effort.

That photo had a very medieval feel about it if that makes sense. Very lovely.

At Ascot , the royal Ladies have to remain kneeling the time the Queen passes her way. Not easy for older Royals such as Princess Michael.

I was thinking of that too. Diana always dipped low.

Bowing and Curtseying

I'm going to wear my black high-heeled sandals to my year-end piano/recital in June; my teacher asked me if I was nervous and i told her "Yes, I've never curtsied in heels before" She told me there's nothing to it, just like a normal curtsy.

I was looking at pictures of the visit that HRH The Prince of Wales did in Serbia today, and saw this picture of what looks like a bow to the Crown Prince. Can anyone confirm as to wether or not this is customary? If this is the case, would it be the case as Crown Prince Alexander is the head (king de-jure) of the Serbian Royal Family, and Charles is still Prince of Wales and not head of the house of Windsor (king of England)?

Thanks! Click image for larger version

The Crown Prince appears to be looking away from Prince Charles though, doesn't he? That's my impression, that the camera just caught a moment in time, perhaps as they were leaving a room.
