When Queen Elizabeth arrived at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, all the female royals curtsied to her.
However, Princess Beatrice did not curtsy to her grandmother. Beatrice has been accused of snubbing Her Majesty during Sunday’s Easter church service.
But, royal author Robert Jobson said that there is a reason why Kate Middleton and Zara Phillips were the only female royals who curtsied when the Queen passed by. This is because curtsies are only done during their first meeting with the Queen during a particular day.
These are some strict rules you need to follow.
Not curtsying to the monarch could only mean that Princess Beatrice already saw her grandmother earlier that day. During their first meeting, the 30-year-old might have curtsied to the Queen. Meanwhile, Kate made headlines last weekend after she seemingly did a perfect curtsy in front of Queen Elizabeth.
