I think the name first before title can indicate a widow as well as a divorced person.

I think people call Catherine, Duchess Kate, out of a love for her not to Demi is her place in the Family, Society or Position. No one means disrespect and I believe if anyone met Catherine, they would use the correct title appropriate for the event, time and how familiar they are with her.

'Call me old fashioned', but I refer to people by their proper names or title, unless they have indicated to me [personally] that they'ed prefer to be called by something else, a nickname or some such..

Its the Duchess of Cambridge or Duchess of Sussex there's no such title as 'Duchess Kate or Meghan' its just a silly media one. It might be cute but its incorrect.

It isn't actually. Uncomfortable, I mean. When you watch a video of the same thing, it's an elegant and/but a pretty quick "dip".

Apparently, Lady Susan Hussey has one of the best curtseys.

My piano teacher says I do a beautiful curtsy; and I agree! We did this exercise a few years ago where you play chords with loose wrists and the book actually said "Dipping; rising", and I told her it's like your wrist is doing a curtsy!

I find curtsies look better in at least knee-length A-line skirts and dresses than with pants.

Beautifully and gracefully executed without losing any of the familial warmth between the two couples.

Excellent curtseys by CP Victoria, nevertheless I cannot understand why she curtseyd to K Felipe and to the Dutch royal Couple but not to queen Letizia, unless I missed it.

Because she did it just before the video started so we all missed it.
