Kate Middleton Dissed — Forced To Curtsy For Princesses

Mon, June 25, 2012 12:45pm EST by 9 Comments
Kate Middleton Curtsey

A new set of rules imposed by the Queen of England states Kate must curtsy to the ‘blood princesses’, including the daughters of the Duke of York, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

Kate Middleton may be a Duchess now, but she was once a commoner, which means she ranks lower on the Royal Order of Precedence than other blood members of the family.

Kate must now curtsy to Beatrice and Eugenie when Prince William is not with her, but when he is by her side, she doesn’t have to curtsy.

The royal etiquette is taken very seriously, and these rules apply in public and in private.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers?

nah im american and i think she should. its an old tradition, and middleton has no royal blood at all. she needs to realize that she will always be seen as a commoner by those of the royal family.

It seems to me you’ve got the wrong end of the stick here. Beatrice and Eugenie are the daughters of Andrew, Duke of York and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson. They are not blood relatives of the Duchess of Cambridge. This curtsey business applies perhaps to any time the Duchess of Cambridge meets Her Majesty The Queen, is that possibly the new rule? I notice that the Duchess of Cornwall always curtseys to the Queen and I have often wondered if this is because she (the Duchess) is a commoner by birth.

It is a very, very, very important to the entire world question: what brainless creature should bow to what brainless creature.
Better off, appoint Obama as the Royal Jester/Fool. He will bow and curtsy to everyone.

These people aren’t more special then anyone else in the world. I think it’s a barbaric representation of a person’s quest for power. These people are treated with honor that none of them deserve. Just because they were born into money, which none of them trulry earned, doesn’t mean we should sit by and treat them as though they are something special. I say wake up and smell the roses.

The poll is inaccurate, Kate is not in line to inherit the throne, William is. When Kate becomes queen, it will be as queen consort, she will not be a ruling queen the way the current queen is. Not that means she should have to bow or anything, just pointing out that she, herself, isn’t heir to the throne.

It may be the royal rule but we as Americans probably think “aaw hell no” that’s what came to my mind. Better recognize new “much better and needed” royal blood” the queen needs to wake up and realize this aint midevil days anymore. Your not in the Lord of the rings either….. So ridiculous said with respect of course….
