I must say this was the first time I saw her curtseys & I love it! *two thumbs*
Very charming. You can tell they have practiced this. She is radiant. He is, too. Nice to see that paternal pride and love. It looks like an award? What was it?

She received the collar and insignia of the Order of the Golden Fleece from her father, the King of Spain.

Founded in 1429, the Order of the Golden Fleece is the second oldest royal order of knighthood still active in Europe today. The oldest is the English Order of the Garter (established in 1348).

After curtsying to King Felipe, Princess Leonor also curtsied to her mother, Queen Letizia, and to her paternal grandparents, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia.

Wonderful
And you know they’ve been practicing this for weeks.
I bet her parents are bursting with pride.

Nice to see Willem-Alexander is so used to doing the Continental double tap to diminutive people that he makes it look smooth as silk. William and Harry have a tendency to turn themselves into pretzels when doing the same.

No one does a gracious curtsey like a Spanish princess. :)

In certain parts of the south they did curtsey's for a long long time, even during most of the 1900's. Pretty sure the East Coast did as well. Lots of traditions came from the 'old country' to the Americas.

Well I mean today. No one is expected to curtsy to royals anymore.

Its solely a matter of personal choice these days. Its basically a gesture of respect.

It IS 'optional', but most people adhere to it, often a courtesy to what they represent in the Nation, rather than as an obeisance to the actual individual themselves.
