Queen Sofia looked radiant in a red gala, which seems to be her favourite colour during this visit, with colourful shawl. Empress Michiko is elegant as usual.

Why shouldn't Queen Sofia and Empress Michiko kiss each other? Is it against the protocol?

Did CPs Masako or other members of Imperial Family take part in state gala? Do you have pictures of them?
It was nice to see Queen wearing the most impresive of spanish royal tiaras.

Based on the photos at hand, it might safely be assumed that Crown Princess Masako only participated in the welcome ceremony. This, in itself, is the really good news!

It is true, i have just seen some pictures and I believe Princess Masako was not present for the State Banquet, but instead it was Princess Kiko sitting alongside the Crown Prince. But it can be understandable for Masako, she would have tried already for the Welcoming Ceremony, it's her first in 5 years, so it would take her quite some times for a more regular schedule

Queen Sofia look amazing in red. I also adore her capes. She's so pretty and elegant.

The Empress also look nice. Although I think she should wear other colors. She's almost always use white as her gown's color. It makes her look like a bride without veil..

But anyway, they both look nice... What happen with other member of the Japan Royal Family? Do they invited to the banquet??

@mybags : I think the Crown Prince also have the Spanish Order. He made an official visit to Spain last July. Maybe King Juan Carlos present him with the Order at that time. Maybe..
