I agree. It's part of 'the game'. I can't imagine Mary feeling 'awkward' about it. She's in such good shape she can execute those dips with finesse.

All in all what does it really matter they are friends and when they get together behind closed doors they probably laugh at it all.
I see potential for modern women to have a completely different and less-competitive response.

Were one of my friends to get the promotion she had worked toward all of her life I'd be thrilled for her and crowing in every way possible to celebrate the elevation. That would include a curtsy if that were the done thing. I'd be so happy to make that small gesture to acknowledge all her hard work.

Just because we here on the forums tend to want to rank and compare and micro-analyze every outfit, use of jewels, hairstyle, appearance, choice of makeup, etc. does not mean that the royal ladies are as critical as we are.

I just don't buy that they are all that concerned with the same stuff we are. And I think more than several of them are modern, inclusive women that do lean in.

I look at it quite differently. I think right now Mary has the best of all worlds. She doesn't have the responsibility of being a queen and what that requires but still has all the perks of a royal. She looks like she enjoys her position with her loving family and handsome husband. This small family seem very loving and close to each other and seems happy to always be together. So to curtsy to another [no matter who] on the odd occasion that it is required by custom, is no big deal. All part of the old 'showing of respect' which is done mostly for the benefit of the public. They expect it.. Mary could probably care less. If she didn't curtsy to all, the papers would have a field day. So she complies with a smile and probably laughs with others in private. Doesn't change who she is, just keeping up her part of the show which we seem to insist upon. I remember a few years ago when King W-A stated that at times all this bowing and curtsying among family and friends got a bit embarrassing. So not all royals think they should be greeted this way anymore. It is the custom and the public that require.

Unlike her wedding day, today Mary has her own family and, unlike her friends, knows that for her husband to become King, his mother must die. Having suffered the loss of a loved parent, I don't believe she wishes the pain of "The Queen is Dead - Long Live the King" on Fred or the rest of her family just so she doesn't have to perform the odd curtsey!

The Mary movie is back on YouTube and available for free viewing. Before, you had to go to some sort of special subscription service to get it. The quality isn't the best, faces are frequently cut out, and some of the dialogue is so fast you can't catch all the words. But if you really want to see it, here's your chance. My opinion: you may lose a few brain cells, but it's a fun way to spend some time. Just type ''Mary Making of a Princess 2015 - full movie'' into the search bar. Enjoy!
