Would you guys bow to royalty?

Well, I've been thinking about this lately. As a human being, i do not see why I should bow before someone just because they are "Royal".

I'd show respect, but if my Queen told me to do things against my will, I'd not do it.

It's a custom, so is saying "bless you" to someone who sneezes. Get over it.

I agree with TS. It's the same reason I refuse to shake anyone's hand or say "Hello, nice to meet you"

I agree zgr0826
and badfish, saying bless you doesn't imply that you are below them. Bowing to someone implies that you are below them as humans. I'm not below anyone, and neither is anyone else.

But that is amongst equals. Bowing is not amongst equals, unless both people bow (like the Japanese custom). The queen of england would not bow to me if i bowed (but she doesn't care if people bow so she isn't the best example).

The point is that it's considered a courtesy.

How is it courteous to debase yourself in front of others?

no, I would not. I don't see someone with a royal title as any different than me other than I grew up somewhere different to them with a different family name. They have done nothing to have earned that title other than get born into it.

If someone had earned a true reason to garner so much respect as to bow to them, then yes I'd think about it. But for "royalty" who have basically done nothing other than be born into a certain family, no.
