Yes, she's beautiful. I'm afraid that "Signora Franca" has to improve.

The entire Royal Family always attend State Banquets. Prince Michael of Kent's website says that Prince and Princess Michael are representing the Royal Family at the Guildhall lunch tomorrow and they are also attending the return banquet at the Italian Embassy but I don't know what other Roysls are going to that.
