— Theresa May’s spectacularly low curtsy leaves the internet in awe
— It looks like Theresa May still hasn’t got the hang of curtsying.
The British Prime Minister has once again got down on overly-bended knee – this time to shake the hand of Prince William in Amiens, France.
The pair were attending commemorations to mark the centenary of the Battle of Amiens.
But May quickly managed to steal the show when her unique method of greeting reared its awkward head once again.
The signature move was soon mocked on Twitter, which saw her compared to a velociraptor, a robot, and Lord of The Ring’s character, Gollum.
‘Watching Amiens commemoration on Sky. Once again, May nearly smashes her head off the pavement, in a grotesque curtsey to Prince William,’ observed one Twitter user.
‘NO-ONE else does it, they simply do a nod of the head.’
‘An hour later and Theresa May is still trying to unravel herself after curtsy,’ joked another.
While a third begged: ‘Please god can someone teach Theresa May how to curtsy.
‘I can’t take any more of these awkward photos.’
The 61-year-old hit the floor to take the Queen’s hand at Buckingham Palace.
From then on her strange address has continued to amuse the public at many royal events.
Prince William and the Prime Minister are in France to pay their tributes to the fallen at a service in Amiens Cathedral.
The story of the battle was told through contemporary letters, diaries and poems read by guests from the 2,000-strong congregation.
May paid tribute to the ‘courage, bravery and skill’ of troops who fought at in the war.
See some reactions:
I dislike @theresa_may I’m certainly not a monarchist, I feel incredibly embarrassed, and angry when I see this sort of thing in the 21st century. No one should bow or bend the knee to another human being.

Theresa May’s AWKWARD CURTSY strikes again as she meets Prince William – ‘It’s grotesque’. Obviously trying to out grovel the Obama bows when people believed he was investigating the Saudi Kings zip.
