Probably the easiest thing to do is when one of them is called into
court, a simple nod of the head in recognition of thier position would
be acceptable.  Then when they are before the thrones, a quiet
statement of "I'm sorry, your majesties, but due to religious reasons,
I am not permitted to bow before others; thus I request to stand in
your prescence." (or something to that effect).  That should be more
than sufficient, I suspect.
