I wish I could see some good pics of this official visit, since I like both, the Japanese Imperial family and the Sweden Royal's one too.

Vanesa.

Queen Silvia wore the Connaugh ruby tiara for the first time in many many years, it looked great on her. The Empress didnt wear a tiara at the state dinner right? Is that usual?

Empress Michiko didn't wear a tiara yesterday because of her ill health and it lightens the burden on her.

Japanese Emperor Akihito, Empress Michiko, Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia listen to a Rare Book Consultant Ove Hagelin in front of the original copy of "Systema Naturae" by Carl von Linne at the National Science Museum in Tokyo March 27, 2007.

Are the tiaras we usually see the Empress wearing really that heavy that it will actually make a person feel sick?

The imperial couple is probably using English to communicate with the royal couple. Empress Michiko Graduated from the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature in the Faculty of Literature at the University of the Sacred Heart. She studied English at university.
Emperor Akihito studied English from an American teacher when he was young.

I always liked the Sweden Royal couple. They are -at least it seems it- that they love each other a great deal.

The only remark I can do is about Queen Sylvia's hat...I can't like it. It's a little...weird. But in general , she always is a very elegant woman.

Vanesa.
