Crown Princess Masako wore the sunburst tiara

Princess Hitachi is wearing her pearl topped fringe tiara she wore for the Spanish state visit:

They do look kind of similar, especially as Princess Hitachi's photographs aren't that close.

Thanks for that picture of Masako! Those tiaras do look similar from a distance.

Thank you for sharing the photos of this gala. Too bad Masako couldn't be there.

That's a rather impressive group of tiara-wearing women bowing to the Emperor and Empress in the last Belga photo. I recognize Princess Kiko and Princess Hitachi, but not the others. Are they members of the extended royal family?

Yes, Ella Key.
There are Princess Mikasa Akiko (the eldest daughter of Pr Mikasa Tomohito) and Princess Takamado Hisako with two her daughters Princess Tsuguko and Princess Noriko.

The waka poems of TIM the Emperor and the Empress are available at Kunaicho web site - here.

Thanks for the additional information!
It was very nice on part of female sportswomen to opt for kimonos, which is a perfect gown for the annual garden party.

No, according to the news she did not - otherwise I would have
written that as well - so it seems she won't attend the wedding.
