I think it was a mistake to not let Daniel take part in official events before their marriage. Maybe they learned and moved on? The wedding is just two weeks after the state visit. Sofia can learn a lot from it, so why not let her do it? It's not like they will be the hosts or something like that.

Iirc Daniel did not take part in many functions because he had to take special care of his health. It was shortly after the transpantation and his immune system was down. At least that was the reason they gave when Daniel didn't attend the Nobels.

Nina Eldh told in connection of king Carl Gustaf's birthday in 30th April 2009 that
- It has been made clear from day one that Daniel Westling will not participate in any official context until the wedding.
So when the king celebrated his 63 birthday Daniel Westling was not at the castle.
- It was never planned that he would be with, says Nina Eldh.
- It will be delayed until after the wedding before Daniel Westling attends at the Crown Princess's work. But there may be exemptions from the decision. As at festive occasions.

But this is not the right thread to discuss about this matter.

I still don't see the point of CP and Sofia being there, really. Said this, the welcome and reception seemed very grand.

State Visits are usually attended by senior members of the royal family. Prince Carl Philip is a senior royal and Sofia will be a senior royal in a few weeks time.

It seems like the Queen didn't travel in the cortège as stated before. She might have been gone by car to the Royal Palace instead, but it must be very rare that the Queen doesn't take part in the cortège during a state visit.

As the wife of the President of India is apparently not following him, there was no need for a 2:nd carriage.

The Queen, Victoria and Daniel probably followed in the car immediately behind.

You're most probably right, I think so too. It's however funny that the Court writes on their website that she took part in the horse-drawn cortege, when she didn't.
