Wow, everyone looked so good at this grand ceremony. I enjoyed the coverage.

So did I as you take it for granted now that his wife will never attend royal occasions.

One of these men is Josep Borrell (the one with gray hair), spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs so Letizia didn't something wrong, King Felipe even introduced him to King Carl Gustav and Crown Princess Victoria. The disrespectful would be if Letizia do not greet the King of Sweden and Victoria.

Overall I agree that they all looked good, but, compared to the former emperor’s enthronement, it was a little bit of a downgrade.

I mean, back then, we had Queen Sonja with Empress Josefine’s emerald tiara, Queen Silvia with the Leuchtenberg sapphire tiara, Queen Margarethe with the Pearl Poire, and the Princess of Wales wearing the Cambridge Lovers Knot.

In one press photograph, there was a woman sitting in front of Empress Masako in the limo. Does Empress Masako have ladies in waiting?

I'm not sure which photo you are referencing, but unless it has changed in the last couple of months, Masako's chief lady in waiting has been with her since 2015, and is named Yukiko Nishimiya. I believe she is the widow of a former diplomat.

love the joy of victoria and maxima of seeing each other in this pic:

funny comment by WA ironically telling the other royals 'what a nice get together, nice and informal!' as they all greeted each other in their gala gowns, hats and sashes :)
King Felipe and of course Queen Letizia too were in the conversation with the gentlemen but obviously the Queen saw King Carl Gustav approaching and it is definitely more DISRESPECTFUL for her to not greeting the Swedish King and kept continuing the conversation and let it goes on until Carl Gustav has to greet or talk to them himself.

Thank you! Queen Letizia did nothing wrong.

Official photos of Imperial family in traditional dress (sokutai and junihitoe). I don't know who took the Takamado photos but the lighting/flash is bad. Photos for the Emperor and Empress were taken in early October. Akishino famlly photos were taken on October 15 and 19th.

So nice and kind at 1.08 from Masako to stop and help Letizia by moving her chair away.

Good Morning , I was wondering if I was the only one to notice the strong resemblance between Empress Masako's evening gown at the banquet , and the gown worn by the then Crown Princess Masako on her wedding day .

It kind of looks unformal. They seem unsure about what is happening. I know this is japanese. But that dining hall, it looks so boring and simple. I saw a documentary about King Olav of Norway visiting emperor Hirohito in the 1980s and it looked exactly the same, boring and chaotic.

That's where a Fanfare is so useful...

Well said. All of it adds to the theatre and ambience of a major state dinner.
