Has the Empress Farah confirmed her attendance or anyone from the Japanese Imperial Family?

Thanks for the updates and information!

Hopefully Princess Takamado will be dispatched to represent the Imperial House.

In the case of Jordan 'of Jordan' is consistently mentioned while they don't include the 'of X' for most other princesses.

And they decided not to include the non-reigning royal families in the list. That's probably the easiest distinction as it would be harder to decide who to include and who to leave out.
The link said “ list of confirmed reigning royal families”, so it is understandable that non-reigning royals were not listed. Maybe they will publish a full guest list later.

Is any Head of State of an European republic attending the funeral ? If GD Jean were a sitting Head of State, there might.be, as was the case at King Baudouin’s funeral, but , since he was only a former Head of State, I don’t think so.

I am disappointed there is no confirmed representation from Japan, but I suppose that is understandable given the new Emoeror’s accession.

Notz an acting Head of State but from Germany former President Joachim Gauck is coming.

The "mon cousin" here is usual in correspondance between heads of royal houses.
See the correspondence of King George VI to Queen Wilhelmina regarding the Belgian royal family:


26 March 1945
"Dear cousin Wilhelmina… I am very interested to hear that cousin Elisabeth spoke to you about Leopold [no cousin here?] and the children. As you say, we can never strike that bargain with the Germans but I feel there must be some other way of getting him free."

I just realized that young princess Elisabeth from Belgium will also attend. Should be an official premiere for her.

Grand Duke Jean was her grand uncle, so there is a family connection that justifies Elisabeth's attendance. Having said that, the fact that she is attending, but her younger siblings are not, suggests some connection wih her position as the heir to the throne. As Elisabeth is not 18 yet, I wouldn't expect her to represent her country abroad in an official capacity so soon.

She will remain low key for the years to come. Recently her father made known he does not want his daughter to receive an allowance when she becomes 18 in October. This because it would bring pressure on the Princess. The King wishes his daughter a focus on her studies and her free life as long as possible.

With this in mind, the attendance of Princess Élisabeth at this funeral indeed must be seen as familial.

Just browse to rtl.lu for a livestream. When you have a smart tv and fast ethernet, you can see it on your wide screen in HD, as well. Maybe EuroNews will broadcast a "No Comment" (the entire broadcast without any voice-over).

Interesting , the Count of Paris is listed as “ His Royal Highnesss”, but as the head of the House of “ Paris” ? Meanwhile, the Duke of Anjou is not referred to as “ Royal Highness”, but as the Head of the House of Bourbon. Neither is listed as the Head of the “ House of France” .

Anyway, what an impressive list of guests !

The song sung after the first reading by Archduchess Marie Astrid is called Céleste Jérusalem, you can easily find the lyrics by googling it.
