Sorry, English isn't my first language
Neither Queen Rania nor Empress Michiko are expected to curstsy to Queen Elizabeth II as they are of the same rank as the Queen, i.e "Her Majesty".
GD Maria Teresa of Luxembourg (an HRH) or Princess Charlene of Monaco (an HSH) should in principle curtsy to a reigning queen like Queen Elizabeth II. Most posters on this forum think they should not do it though, because they are marrried to a Head of State. I personally disagree with that opinion.
