I believe she gets head aches, so no longer wears them.

I'm no jewelry expert, but I can tell you that Empress Michiko have not been wearing any tiara the past two years. Might have something to do with headaches, age.

Many thanks. Am I the only one who thinks the tiara is not on straight?

It is the very first time Queen Maxima is using Wurttenberg tiara, what is a big gun as a tiara. So this is very important thing for both Netherland and Japan royalty.

Having a State Visit between 2 Royal Houses always implies the "big Gun" Tiaras

Conisdering the seniority of the Imperial House of Japan among the world's monarchies, it is appropriate to bring out the big guns.

I was thinking the same thing. Is it because her head is tilted in the picture or is the tiara not straight? Regardless, she looks beautiful and exceedingly regal for this visit. So glad they decided to go to Japan for this visit. And so glad to see the Crown Princess out with the Imperial Family again.

It's not often that a king comes face-to-face with an emperor but that is exactly what happened when the Netherland's King Willem-Alexander was welcomed to Japan by the country's Emperor Akhito.
The Dutch royals are beginning a six-day tour of the country, and were greeted by an honour guard as they arrived in the Japanese capital.
After a visit to a design museum and a gorgeous oriental garden, the two finished their first day with a lavish state banquet thrown in their honour.

Any idea why the empress didn´t wear a tiara?
Don´t get me wrong, I really do like the japanese imperial family, but I will never understand why the ladies seem to wear always the same but in different colours...? These hats, never being flattering, look exactly the same since about 20 years!
But, to say something positive, I like seeing the CPss using a tiara I´ve never seen her used! Queen Máxima looked beautiful as always.

Empress Michiko is said to take some religious vows. So this means that we may never see her wearing a tiara again. It would be great, if a TRF member from Japan can either confirm or deny it. As we know, the Japanese Imperial ladies never break the protocol without a really good reason.

The Empress stopped wearing tiaras a couple of years ago when doctors advised her to do so. Iirc she had problems with her spine.

CP Masako has worn this fringe style parure for several years. She regularly arrives for the New Year Receptions, but does not attend the official part of the event. So usually there are only pictures of her arriving in their car, and these pictures don't reach the front pages.

It's so nice to see CP Masako there , smiling and apparently happy. I believe she has a genuine friendship with Maxima.

Its a great homage to the Dutch king and queen that masako attends these events. It looks to me that this is the best way masako could say thanks to maxima for her help. These two appear to be such a close bunch. Lovely to see that masako is getting some support from overseas. :) lovely to see them also with the emperor and empress. I wonder whether they have met previously. Maxima s friendship with Masako makes me think that's the case but wonder where as the imperial couple don't seem to travel much abroad and WA and maxima haven't been on official visit to japan before if I can well remember...


And doesn't the queen look fantastic in the new tiara? How beautiful!

They certainly must have met before, but I don't know how often. Eg the Empror, the Empress, WA and Maxima all attended the diamond jubilee of King Bhumibol in 2006.

I wonder what Princess Kiko thinks about all the attention her sister-in-law is getting. She's probably green with envy.

The Dutch Crown Prince already met the Japanese Crown Prince when he was just 18 years old and made an overseas trip:
HIH Princess Michiko
HIH Prince Naruhito
HRH The Prince of Orange
HIH The Crown Prince of Japan
HIH Princess Sayako
http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/tqgr/ima...04-800-592.jpg

When King Willem-Alexander was only four, his mother already welcomed the present Emperor's parents, Emperor Hirohito and Empress Kojun, at Soestdijk Palace, the private residence of Queen Juliana:
http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/tqgr/ima...64-800-611.jpg

In 1979 Crown Prince Akihito and Princess Michiko also made a private trip to the Netherlands and were received by Princess Beatrix and Prince Claus, including a private diner at Soestdijk Palace, with Queen Juliana:
http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/tqgr/ima...38-800-536.jpg

The very first outgoing State Visit of the young Prince of Orange, as escort to his mother, went to Japan, back in 1991. Back then Queen Beatrix wore another of those magnificent pearl diadems in the rich Orange-Nassau collection:
http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/tqgr/ima...17-800-562.jpg

A couple of years ago the crown princely family spent a holiday at the Queen's hunting lodge in the East of the Netherlands:
http://www.hellomagazine.com/imagene...asako-1--a.jpg

Last year Princess Masako made her first official foreign trip in more than a decade to attend the Investiture of King Willem-Alexander:
http://www.hellomagazine.com/imagene...asako-3--a.jpg

Yesterday Princess Masako, for the first time in 11 years, did attend a statee banquet, in honour of King Willem-Alexander:
