She did to William but not to Kate. What's your point?

No point at all. I didn’t know she did it to Kate either.

She nodded her head, just like the female church-official did. So nothing wrong done.

You don't curtsey to every single royal down the line. If you choose to curtsey - and it is optional even for the Prime Minister - the norm is to curtsey to the royal born and not their partner, especially when they are together.

There is no requirement to curtsey to anyone, including the Queen.

I didn't know this rule about curtsey only to the royal born and not to the partner. But I noticed that Mrs May did not curtsey to Kate nor to Meghan but she did curtsey to Camilla, so I'm a bit lost.

.
I am not familiar with that norm. In countries where curtsying is still observed, people tend to curtsy both to the Royal by birth and his consort, who holds the same rank and style.

Personally, I would bow to anyone with the style of Majesty or Royal Highness, either by birth or by marriage.

So by this it appears the Sussexes and Cambridges are neither at Sandringham, is that right?

I honestly believe that would be reading too much into it - last year they curtsied and this year they did the same. I doubt they wouldn't have gone back for lunch at Sandringham anyway?

So that other explanation is that they are doing it just for the cameras? Because no one (excepting Jack and Tim) behind them bows?

But they just saw the Queen in church, so I’m confused about this idea that they’re bowling/curtesying because they’ve just seen her. Wouldn’t they do it when she entered, or left the church?

They don't curtesy at the services...they are all in the Church usually well before the Queen arrives...IIRC no one is supposed to arrive after the Queen.

Every year they line up outside (whoever hasn't seen her) and as she leaves curtesy/bow.

Yeah, I know that no one arrives after the Queen. I was wondering if they would curtsey to her inside the church.

In any event, seeing as Tim and Jack bowed as she left, I’m not convinced it tells us who has, or hasn’t seen her.

Enough with all the criticism of who bows, how and when. I just noticed that Jack Brooksbank — a first timer at Sandrjnghan Christmas— also bowed. Eugenie didn’t.

I’m going to assume it’s over compensation and leave it at that.

Meghan and Jack aren’t idiots —- just new to everything and not wanting to put a wrong foot forward.

Goos for them!

I don’t see anyone criticizing the new royals for how, or when they bow/curtsey. This discussion was about whether the Cambridges and the Sussexes bowed because they hadn’t seen the Queen this morning.
