We've seen the other generation curtsying (Letizia or the Infantas) to Q Sofia or K Juan Carlos on occasions when they meet up in public what didn't happen very often (eg meeting at a restaurant, at the funeral of Letizia's sister).
We've never had such an occasion with Letizia and her daughters and I can imagine this tradition will be broken.
Same with the addressing, Felipe calls his parents 'patron' and 'senora', not sure the Infantas do the same.

I believe the OP wasn't referring to Sofia and Leonor. Or not just them. But to the older spanish infantas like Elena, Cristina and so on.

As Letizia is queen, besides her mother in law, it would be customary for the others to curtesy to her, as they did to Sofia. But I don't think it has happrned,

ok sorry, I guess I misunderstood. I don't think we'll ever see a picture Cristina curtsying to Letizia due to lack of opportunity, I could imagine this with Elena, but as I said, those occasions are rare that family members get together in public and greeting each other there, in 99% of the cases they arrive together.

I always think this is a lovely photo. Royal to Royal 1950s curtseys were less elaborate that those that developed in later years.

Yesterday I saw a video of the wedding of HGD Guillaume with Stéphanie de Lannoy. And I noticed this strange thing. For each Royal or Princely couple arriving they were stopping in front of the flag / military Corp, and bowing, both gentlemen and ladies. CP WA and Maxima both bowed, CP Frederick and Mary both Bowed. Even Princess Caroline of Hanovver arriving alone, she stopped, turned in front of the military Corp and bowed the head.
Only exceptions: Princess Lala Salma of Marrocco, she did not stop at all.
Also CP couple of Norway, Haakon bowed and MM CURTSEYED.
Same for royal couple of Bulgaria. King Simeon bowed, but Queen Margarita CURTSEYED. Does anyone know the reason of these 3 protocol exceptions?

That is normal protocol in some countries, greeting the regimental standard of the Guard of Honour presenting it to them. For the own Sovereign the standard is lowered: http://www.algemenewaterschapspartij...-binnenhof.jpg

For not the Sovereign, the standard is not lowered: http://www.adelinnederland.nl/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Zuylen-6.jpg

The curtsey by Mette-Marit and Margarita is gracious and an option. Lalla Salma probably simply forgot to greet the regimental standard.

Thanks a lot @Duc_et_Pair.
I just thought that maybe the Morocco protocol does not prevail for a non accompagned woman to bow in front of a military Corp.

Mette marit is too fond of bending her knees. She curtseyed to Camilla, Obama and probably to you and me.. The standard protocol for flag at guard of honour is salute if wearing headdress uniform, otherwise bow. Unisex..

I had exactly the same thought when I saw her. She is fond of curtsey and despite than she is not my cup of tea, I should accept that she does it very graciously.
But when I saw QMargarita doing the same, I thought it might be a reason.

I remember them all stopping at that standard and paying their respects while watching the wedding.

I think its a wonderful gesture on the part of foreign dignitaries and heads of state and royalty to stop and acknowledge the significance of the country that they're visiting. It puts the wedding into a perspective that this was not only the wedding of Guillaume and Stephanie but first and foremost before any ceremony, they acknowledged that they were at the wedding of Guillaume and Stephanie of Luxembourg.

With a little correction: not the national flag was greeted but the regimental standard: "Chef de détachement Major Peter Bodé, three chefs de peloton, nine chefs de section (non-commissioned officers) and 63 soldiers formed the détachement d'honneur in front of the cathedral. First lieutenant Yves Van Camp bore the regimental standard and was escorted by two non-commissioned officers and three soldiers."

Luxembourg

Netherlands (QB is excited after adding a cravate to the standard)

United Kingdom
