Kate Middleton showed off a perfect curtsy once again!
The Duchess of Cambridge attended Easter services on Sunday, April 21, with the royal family and Queen Elizabeth, dressed in an elegant light blue coat and dress with a matching fascinator. Before the service at St. George’s Chapel with husband Prince William, Kate — now a pro at royal protocol — had a moment with the Queen, putting on a model curtsy.
With one foot behind the other, Kate bent her knees and smiled at the Queen, while also slightly bowing her head — exactly how Myka Meier, founder and director of Beaumont Etiquette says a curtsy should look.

Last year, Meier told PEOPLE that a curtsy should be subtle and that the deeper and longer you pause shows more respect and formality.
Kate’s etiquette did well, as today is also the Queen’s actual birthday!
The long-reigning monarch celebrated her 93rd birthday on Sunday and wore a light blue coat and hat that included a bright pink ribbon, matching her dress.View this post on Instagram
#news Her Majesty accompanied by members of the Royal Family to the annual Sunday Easter church service at St. George‘s chapel at Windsor Castle in Windsor Estate. (An unexpected appearance from Prince Harry after years for not taking part at the service! Meghan is on baby countdown at home, her Mum Doria is reportedly in London now!) Today is not only Easter, but also the Queen's 93rd birthday and we congratulate Her Majesty from the bottom of our hearts on her birthday and wish her all the best and health. The Queen celebrates her birthday privately and publicly throughout this year. One of these big events will be ”Trooping the colour“ in June. What is Easter? Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb on the third day after his crucifixion. Easter is the fulfilled prophecy of the Messiah who would be persecuted, die for our sins, and rise on the third day. (Isaiah 53). Remembering the resurrection of Jesus is a way to renew daily hope that we have victory over sin. According to the New Testament, Easter is three days after the death of Jesus on the cross.
