I don't think so. The British address foreign nobility or royalty in the British fashion and not with the address used in their own countries.

No matter what she wears, Mary always manages to pull off an elegant and respectful curtsey. Perhaps she chose wide-legged trousers with the added volume enabling her to not look wierd.

Curtsies always look better in skirts (preferably below the knee).

If a Crown Prince becomes Prince Regent, does he still have to bow to reigning monarchs of other countries?

The Tsar & King of Prussia were in London in 1814 to celebrate victory over France (prematurely as it turned out of course). At this time Prinny had been Prince Regent for three years so there may be some information somewhere about precedence etc.

From this

:https://georgianera.wordpress.com/20...-20-june-1814/

"The Prince Regent entered the park with his hat off, bowing to the vast assembly, the Emperor Alexander riding on his right hand, and the king of Prussia on his left,"

If he'd just been the PofW instead of PR would he have ridden behind the two monarchs? Maybe that gives a clue to his status vis-a-vis the two sovereigns possibly?

I’d suggest the fact that all three rode together had more to do with them being representatives of three of the major victorious nations vital to the defeat of Napoleon than any question of precedence at that particular moment.

Yes I think you're probably right. That was my thinking when I first read the article.

Two lower chairs for the two foreign monarchs at this ceremony however, with Prinny in the centre.

Crown Princes in Scandinavia are frequently Regent. Does that affect anything?

How would Mary 'outrank' Catherine? Both of them are royal highnesses...

Mary is Crown Princess - that is next in line to the throne as Consort to the King.
Catherine becomes Crown Princess or in the English case Princess of Wales when Charles becomes King. In a sense Catherine is one rung down the ladder from the Crown as Queen Consort, whereas Mary is next in line as Consort.

I hope I have explained that well enough.

I understand the difference between the wife of a first in line to the throne and a second in line to the throne but in terms of curtseying I believe the style is more important than their husband's place in line of succession: they are both royal highnesses. Does Marie also curtsey to Mary every time they meet? I only recall both of them curtsying to HM the queen (their mother-in-law).
