Just a thought!

Seniors never step in for lower ones.
If Caroline was not able to attend, the next person, her sister (if her sons are young/non-working) will attend.
So Albert was supposed to attend, and he attended.
And we can discuss somewhere else in detail whether a monarch of a principality can attend the coronation of a monarch (of a nation)..
I wanna check out some precedences..

Masako didn't attend the party.

Not everything can be clearly re-arranged, not a friends wedding. Who has a wedding on a Tuesday? Who has a inauguration on a Tuesday?
The Netherlands. On Queen's Day.

You raise a good point though Lumutqueen - why couldn't Caroline attend? It's all a bit of a show up for the Monagasques if you ask me. Maybe Charlene is embarrassed?

I think you'll find they visit the Persian Gulf as often as they visit every other country they can. What this has to do with the Dutch Inauguration, i'm not sure?

It appears that Crown Prince Naruhito attended the event solo.

Princess Masako didn't attend this dinner because it is still hard for her to attend all of this festivities in a row. She will go to the investiture tomorow, as she's in the guestlist.

I loved to see a tiara event, its always welcome
About tomorow, what's the dresscode? Long dresses and hats?

This is NOT a thread ont the why or not or where abouts of a lady from monaco as you correctly state vkrish...It is part of the Dutch Inauguration threads and one most certainly wishes to keep it that way.

The pendant is the center stone of the brooch that was given to Queen Emma by the Dutch people in 1879.Not the Stuart...Gues we...I anticipated that stone so much I took anything larger then a regular pebble for the Stuart diamond...grin......

I'm sure that Masako will make an appearance tomorrow. Maybe announcing her attendance made us expect too much? It's only really important that she's there tomorrow for the ceremony after all.

You are right. We hoped that Crown Princess Masako would feel well to attend all the events.

CP Masako came to attend the Inauguration and a reception. According to the news thread in these forums, other events would depend on her doctors' opinion. Given her health, I expect that her doctor would want her to rest after the lengthy flight so that she'll be able to attend the Inauguration tomorrow.

My thoughts exactly.I am busy admiring Maxima's fabulous nevklace.

Thank you for the answer ladies.I guess I am just too excited to see Princess Masako.I admire her for taking the long flight to be here.

Well they obviously can, because Albert will attend the inauguration of Prince Wilhelm-Alexander tomorrow. (This is quite on topic by the way)

Got to admit my favourite jewel of the night has to be Crown Princess Sarah's tiara, that was stunning. The way she wore it on top of her head scraf was incredible.
