Why Princess Kate Middleton Didn’t Curtsy To King Charles At Commonwealth Day Service

Princess Kate Middleton raised eyebrows during the Commonwealth Day service at London’s Westminster Abbey on Monday, after she reportedly didn’t curtsy to father-in-law King Charles despite royal protocol. However, experts were quick to point out that the Princess of Wales wasn’t required to curtsy in this instance considering she and Charles had likely seen each other before the event. Traditional etiquette is said to mandate a curtsy only upon first greeting.
