pic in the paper today of Kate curtsey ing to the queen at the easter service. she was stood next to princesses Eugene and Beatrice who were not curtsey ing. just made me wonder why. I thought kate would be a more 'senior' royal. was it because her husband prince William wasn't with her?

She curtsies only the first time she sees Her Majesty on any given day. That is the rule.

i read that etiquette dictates that you curtsey to the queen the 1st time you see her that day, so it probably was the 1st time she had seen the queen . the other princess's had probably already been with the queen this morning
