No they aren't. Presidents and their wives are equals to other world leaders and their wives.

No. According to the US Office of Protocol, the wife of a sitting President cannot be seen to curtsy to any monarch.

The exception was Catholic First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy making an impressive three curtsies to Pope John XXIII during a private audience in 1962, but that was in his position as Bishop of Rome and not as Vatican Head of State.

Nancy Reagan insisted on committing a faux pas against the advice of her Protocol expert when she curtsied to HM Elizabeth II..but that is another story for another thread.

It was Sarah’s father’s proudest moment when Sarah curtsied to the Queen at the end of her and Andrew’s wedding; I wonder if it was the same for Andrew yesterday?

I was impressed with that deep curtesy. A big dress, probably a not os light tiara and heels and she managed that. That´s skill.

have a question on the matter of the DEPTH of the curtsy. in The Queen, it's mentioned that "the depth of the curtsy, I leave that to my sister".....years ago, the King or Queen received the deepest one...and so on down the line. any info on this?

My point was that I haven't seen many deep curtsies like that, even among those who have had years of practice.

The visit of the Dutch King and Queen to the UK shortly made me think that T.M. are not used to receiving bows and curtsies as its no longer practiced in the Netherlands ,the last time I recall the Dutch King and Queen getting one was in Spain by the Infanta Elena.

The Duchess of Cambridge gave a curtsy to the Dutch King when she had lunch with him in the Netherlands.
