Since he`s just delivered the silver upon the SW1 crowd`s bare mantlepiece of achievement, (thus breaking their somewhat prolonged famine) shouldn`t SHE be the one kissing HIS ass? laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

I may well be wrong but do people still actually bow, as per the old fashioned type of bow, to the Queen any more? I thought in this modern day and age it was more or less a nod of the head, which reminds me of the Mr Bean sketch where he is in a line up to be presented to the Queen and ends up heid butting her laugh.gif

Just a thought here, Lizzie became a monarch at a very young age, she also KNEW that was going to be her life, no options, hubby was going to have a good time, after all he was not king.She made a very moving pledge as a young woman to devote her life to the Commonwealth. She has maintained her pledge. Chuck, I am not his biggest fan, William and Kate, they seem so be willing to take on the mantle of Britain's Ambassadors, ( I so hope my cousins are not reading this, lol) It IS a job, and who better to interface with the rest of the world's community than (in Britain's fading days) people who have many, many, many years of experience and inside knowledge. The days of Britannia are over but more to the point, the Queen has, at all times done her very best to represent what the whole British thing was about. So yes, Andy give her respect but not observience. She would expect no less.

People do still bow and ourtsey to the Queen, normally not so much out of respect but because they are told to do so. This is deemed to be Royal Etiquette.

I personally, think quite regardless of the times we are living in, that this is archaic.

People these days, don't hold the same feelings about Royalty as they did in the 19th and 20th Centuries.

Should Andy or anyone else do it. My opinion is that if they want to it's fine, if they don't, it's also fine. Queenie may see it differently of course.
