Thats your opinion. Still I believe the influence of Prince Charles on the monarchy shouldn´ t be underestimated these days. Charles is one of those on the one hand wanting to keep all the traditions and ceremonial that go with Royalty, but on the other hand modernizing it, slim it down to make it more acceptable and efficient.
It is said he wants royal duties and public functions being performed, if possible, by the so called major Royals (the roy.couple, heir and wife, his children and siblings) and less nieces or cousins like it used to be in the older days.
I´m too enjoying first and foremost beautiful pics of Royalty. Still you can think about certain observations you do since quite a while by now.

The King and Queen of Spain are visiting the Abbey with Prince Harry. A wreath has been laid.

Harry’s big moment: Prince hosts Spain’s Queen Letizia and King Felipe VI at Westminster Abbey as he takes a formal role in a state visit for the first time

I'm CERTAIN one [or both] of their Majesties will be at Wimbledon this afternoon to see Ms Muguruza play. The opportunity is simply TOO good for them to miss !

I see they have no events planned after the lunch with Ms May, which is strange given how packed their schedule is, so you might have a point

I would love that but Garbine's match starts in 15 minutes and Felipe and Letizia have just started to greet the guests at the reception at the Spanish Embassy.

I was wondering if we might see them in the royal box over the visit,perhaps the Duchess of Cambridge might accompany them?

I'm just curious, does Harry have a closer relationship with the Spanish couple?

That would be great! The Duchess is in London and they met last night, and the opening of the Natural History Museum Hitze Hall is this evening, so she has the afternoon off. I would love to see them in the Royal Box with HRH.

Kate has engagements today so unlikely to attend the Spanish player's match which starts in about 5 minutes. The royal presence today at Wimbledon is Sophie.

A white and yellow rosette

So Harry did receive the Order of Isabella the Catholic

Kate is not there at present and the Spanish player is playing now so it's unlikely she will attend.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_...a_the_Catholic

But why didn´t he wear its sash (at the banquet)?

It only could have been the miniature of a spanish order in his buttonwhole. Wearing another one for an engagement with the spanish King and Queen wouldn´t have made sense.
Still, why did he get it other than his elder brother and sister -in-law? Only because he accompanied the royal couple to W Abbey? And why didn´t Andrew and Anne, who also join the spanish royal couple for official engagements during their stay, didn´t...?!
Questions we might never solve!

I don't think so. He certainly was ordered to accompany the royal couple.
