Perhaps we will get better pics later. But i think we didn't get pics from the Mikasa and Takamado ladies at the belgian and dutch State Banquets.

Not sure if I have seen much cleavage on display, but perhaps more pictures will be released soon

Fa-bu-lous. I like the detail of folds in the sleeves.

Well, i guess you have never seen a "super cleavage".
My two cents ...

When you looked at the passage of all guests, Japanese and Spanish, to be presented to the imperial- and royal couples, Letizia was by far "the most nude" of all attendees. By far. And that is surprising. One would expect that from a Gunilla von Bismarck in Marbella, not so from the Queen of Spain in Tokyo. But as usual, opinions will always differ on appearances.

Judging by the photos and video of the gala dinner:
Tsuguko, Yoko, Nobuko, Mako on Masako/Michikoís side.
Kiko, Kako, Hanako (or Akiko), Hisako, and Ayako on the other.

Remarks by His Majesty the Emperor at the State Banquet in Honour of Their Majesties King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia, the King and Queen of Spain (April 5, 2017) - The Imperial Household Agency

I didnít expect Queen Letizia to wear a hat at the welcome but I was somewhat surprised Empress Michiko and CP Masako skipped hats as well. Theyíve worn hats when others didnít (Singaporeís First Lady last year, Queen Sofia in 2008). Oh well, I assume everything was agreed beforehand.

The most nude?
You must have a fit of the vapors every time a royal wears a strapless dress, or shows a bit of leg.

Don't be so caricatural. Just a look at the video of the speeches and you'll see that her outfit is perfectly fine.
She's a young, modern and beautiful queen with a great body. I don't blame her to choose a dress enhancing her figure.

Thanks for the photo link!
Japanese ladies in kimonos looked great. It is unfortunate that we can not see good photos of Imperial Princesses, who attended the banquet.

Crown Princess Masako's ensemble was well-chosen.

After the welcome ceremony the couples exchanged presents. The King and Queen presented the Emperor with a sculpture by Arturo Berned and a silk shawl ("mantůn") to the Empress. They also gave the couple a bonsai and four bottles of olive oil.
The Japanese couple had a ceramic vase for King Felipe and a jewelry box with gold leafing, a Saga Nishiki bag and silk to make a dress for Queen Letizia. The silk was produced by Empress Michiko silkworms.

The King and Queen also received their new Japanese orders.

Mrs Abe, Princess Kiko, and her daughters looked stunning.

I assume they knew beforehand that Queen Letizia, like Queen Sofia before her, wouldn't be wearing a hat and agreed not to wear one themselves.

From the Spanish royal family channel:
Letizia being unhappy with her conversation with the Empress, obviously she didn't understand what Letizia was explaining to her and the interpreter came in late.

Don't they both speak English ? I imagine the interpreter is there just as a backup.
