I see. Thanks

It depends on the country. In the UK, Denmark and Spain, people usually curtsy to royals at public events. In Belgium and the Netherlands, they do not. In Sweden, people don’t normally curtsy either, but you may see it sporadically.

I've seen countless videos, and it just depends on the person. Not a lot of people curtsy to the British royals well except the Queen.

The RF arrive for The service / HM & curtsey
If I'm not wrong Princess Eugénie and the wife of Peter Philips did not curtsey? Could it be so? Why?

If this is the Easter service it could be that William & Kate had not arrived when the Queen had, there seemed a little bit of glancing around to see if they were on their way, glances at watches etc. It could be that simply distracted. Also its likely many of those present had been present in the Castle earlier so would have already curtseyed to the Queen then so were under less obligation to do so again. Or they simply forgot!

If they have already seen the Queen earlier in the day they would of already made their curtesy, no need to do it again.

I did not know that it was like this. I thought they had to curtsey every time they saw the Queen
Thanks a lot

Thank heavens, no! It is actually quite funny when you see them at Royal Ascot when HM is walking around. Beatrice may have seen her 15 minutes earlier so when they encounter Gran, only Eugenie curtseys.

Princess Michael once described the curtsey as "hello and goodbye" -first meeting, and when leaving. Otherwise they'd be popping up and down all day...

In the British royal weddings I understand that the new couple bows and curtsey while leaving the church not when arriving, in opposition to the other countries, like Spain or Denmark when the do it arriving.
But I have the impression that Harry and Meghan didn't do at all, I'm wrong?

Yes, just missed it, many did. They curtseyed/bowed when they came back from signing the registrar. Unfortunately the only camera on them when they did, was an aerial shot so it wasn't easy to see.

Thanks. I was thinking that it was not possible they did not

I assume they must have other shot from other angle and I hope they are editing it and will upload it to the royal family YT channel as they just took down the live video on YT.

Here are some curtsies from other royal brides:
Mette Marit: https://youtu.be/DorodTW9nlI?t=1m46s
Mary: https://youtu.be/h_yLKhKIyS0?t=6m45s
Victoria: https://youtu.be/c-h2WKtoOzo?t=4m2s
Madeleine: https://youtu.be/EUpRV6h-Uw8?t=5m1s (another worst angle from the back)
Stephanie: https://youtu.be/rCGIcQhDvH8?t=54m14s (it's more like a bow?)

I am not sure about that but I guess Benelux doesn't have the tradition of curtsying even in wedding? I don't find any video of Maxima and Mathilde.
