After watching the vid in the DM article I noticed one glaring lack of respect/sign of snub: no courtesies!  snob Lips Sealed
Not from the fist lady who greeted her outside of the car and did the intro to the headmaster and deputy headmistress in front of the building, and again no curtsey from the female... huh

Are they by protocol only required to do that when William is around as well (him being a born royal, I clearly recall PM May doing it in Belgium)
or does she just not insist on it during these smaller daytime visits?
or is it a thing you can just choose not to do at all if you don't want to? dontknow

Anyone know the answer?

^ You can just choose to do it or not. Only the Queen gets curtseys at all regularly from members of the public, none of the others get many, little girls presenting posies excepted I suppose. It's completely gone out of style in the last twenty-thirty years, IMO.

^^^ By protocol and rules, only the Winds amongst themselves have rules for courtseying (and royals amongst each other), anyone else can do as they choose: if they want to, they can, if they don't want to courtsey, they don't have to (or nod their head instead). That applies to people who meet Liz too, not just the others.

Even the PM doesn't have to courtsey (I think, pretty sure actually). Most choose to courtsey to Liz out of respect. Don't know whether a PM or president (or wife) has to courtsey to royalty on trips, I'd guess "no" though.

The Dutch are the most modern, my understanding is they have abolished courtseying completely, except for foreign royal visits (if they drop it, some other royal who hasn't abolished it may see it as snub/ insult).
