The difference is that Kate is a royal subject, therefore it's proper (if you believe that kind of B.S.) that she bow.  If you are not a subject you should never bow to royalty.  That's why it was such a mistake (one that someone who is ignorant would make) for Obama to bow to royalty.
I would think he(or his advisors), know exactly what they are doing ....... I mean, you can't publicly lick a*** so this is the next best thing ...... lol!

Courtesy and respect cost nothing, and it doesn't hurt. Being polite and civil doesn't hurt either, and it may be to your advantage in the long run, because you will be remembered for doing so.

True, but it doesn't need to include bending the knee or bowing the head, because those are both very powerful signals that you see yourself as inferior and subservient.

   Point taken but when Kate gets promoted,(when young Will gets to be King) she will have the last laugh.

No one person should ever HAVE to bow down to another. If you truly respect someone you may show them respect, if bowing is how you show your respect that is your choice. Forcing someone to bow down to their "betters" is archaic and just shows how little you care about others lives.

They all need to get a life really, don't they?

Well said.


I can't stand them, the Queen looked like a right miserable git at the Jubilee thing which was all for her. I don't car eif it was raining and she had to stand for 3 hours or something. My Gran has to stand for hours in the rain when she goes shopping etc. She doens't complain about it.

Poeple have to stand in hours of rain WORKING to pay taxes.


She has £1.7 billion in a personal account, why the hell do we pay for her and her family?!

I don't care if it's tradition... Hanging was a tradition, so was beheadings. Amongst other rubbish that has been thrown out, the Royal family is more rubbish we should throwing out.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Do the Queen's Corgis have to bow or curtsy to anyone?

Prince Andrew has to bow to every member of the family but only so they can kick him up the ar$e.

Not sure about that, but Kate probably has to curtsey to them!
