I find curtsying so humiliating. I don't know why it's still practiced in the 21st century.

I remember reading about men ``making a leg'' in the presence of royalty in times past. I rather imagine it is a bow so deep that one leg is stretched back. Don't think that is done at all these days.

In ballet classes, we make what is known as a ``reverence'' to the teacher and accompanist at the end of class. It's a very deep curtsey, with the right leg straight and swept to the back and the left leg deeply bent. Same as the curtsey a ballerina will make on stage. I suppose if I were expected to curtsey to some royal -- not that we do so here in the US -- the reverence is what I would do.

Can't remember seeing any videos of her curtseying to the Queen, but Diana certainly had a lot of ballet training. So I am wondering if she employed the ballet reverence or if protocol dictates that both legs be bent before royalty. Frankly, that looks really awkward to me, like the person curseying intends to squat somewhere.

February 28, 2019, Queen Elizabeth II hosted a luncheon in honour of the King, the Queen and the Crown Prince of Jordan at Buckingham Palace in London. King Abdullah, Queen Rania and their son Crown Prince Al Hussein were greeted by the Queen and her daughter Princess Anne. King Abdullah arrived in the United Kingdom on Wednesday to participate in the London Initiative Conference, hosted by the British government in partnership with the Jordanian government

Hear Hear. Why not just go with everyone making a slight bow if they wish to show reverence? Kudos to Anne though, for still being fluid enough to do it, and in a relatively tight skirt.

Everything about this is magnificent. Gui smushing his face into Wax's shoulder? Steph knocking her hat off? A* effort all round from the Luxes!

No one should curtsey to another person. Bowing your head should be respectful  enough,which is something even royals and ordinary citizens do when meeting , greeting or thanking  someone .
