The Queen commands so much respect across the globe and many leaders of the world had bowed before her as a sign of respect to her status and the institution she represents.
The queen is happily married to Prince Philip, who is the Duke of Edinburgh and former Prince of Greece and Denmark. Since they got married in 1947, their marriage has produced four children making them proud.
The Queen and her husband were always seen together on official visit to other countries especially when they were still agile and strong.
They are well respected, command so much honour and rarely bow for any king or leader, rather, kings and leaders of various nations bow for them.
However, the protocol was broken in 1954 when the Queen of England and her husband bowed down for Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia during an official visit. It is believed that Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia and his wife, Empress Menen Asfew are the only one the Queen and her husband ever bowed for.
Haile Selassie I ruled Ethiopia as the Emperor between 1930 to 1974. Ethiopia where he came from is believed to be the only country in Africa that was never colonized during colonial era.
