How to greet the Queen
Meeting the monarch is considered one of the most important moment for tons of people around the world.
One needs only to look at Theresa May's curtsy to understand just how important it is to make the right impression.
According to the official Royal website, greeting the Queen for men simply requires a handshake or bow. And for women, the famous curtsy will do.
Nathan invents a new greeting
But for this little cutie, he got so overwhelmed standing face to face with the monarch that he invented a brand new greeting. Nathan was captured on camera crawling as fast as he could away from the Queen after he was introduced to her.
