This is why Prince George has to bow to the Queen… but Princess Charlotte doesn't

But even though her big brother, Prince George, now five, will soon be expected to bow in public – she is still exempt.

It is because – at just three – the little Royal is still deemed too small to take part in such a grown-up tradition.

Royal historian Marlene Eilers Koenig told Hello that Royal children were generally expected to curtsy and bow by the age of five, giving Charlotte a few more years of not doing so.

And she explained there was some misleading information about who she would have to curtsy too when the time came to do it.

She said:  "The only person they will be expected to curtsy or bow to is the sovereign. A Royal Highness does not curtsy to another Royal Highness.

"Yes, there are articles that state this, but it is not true.

"Curtsying and bowing is etiquette, nothing to do with precedence."

She added: "You bow or curtsy the first time you see the sovereign and then again when you leave.

"At Christmas at church, we saw the Cambridges and Prince Harry and Meghan curtsy and bow when the Queen arrived and left.

"Other royals including Charles did not because they had come from Sandringham and had already seen the Queen."

She also hinted that George might well have practised curtsying behind the scenes – ahead of the first time he had to do it public.

People have noticed something very special about Princess Charlotte in the Christening photos – and it will melt your heart.

In more royal news, this is the secret reason why Meghan keeps wearing ultra-feminine pink to royal events.

And did the Queen really "troll Trump" with her brooches?
