State Visit from the Emperor and Empress of Japan: Spring 2020 [postponed]
 

https://www.royal.uk/state-visit-emp...-empress-japan

Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress of Japan have accepted an invitation from Her Majesty The Queen to pay a State Visit to the United Kingdom in Spring 2020.

Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress (Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako) will stay at Windsor Castle.

Wouldn’t it be nice if she gave him the Garter.

I’m so excited!

Mega pump ahead !

Lovely to see that the first outgoing State Visit of the new imperial couple will be to the UK. That is really something to look forward to.

Very excited!!!

Great. I had a feeling a state visit would come shortly after the enthronement. Japan is a priority country post-Brexit.

And I am also happy that the state dinner will be at Windsor rather than Buckingham Palace.

I wonder if Harry and Meghan will attend? This will be a great tiara event -- I look forward to seeing the royals and their jewelry choices.

Probably a stupid question:

Will her majesty bring out the carriages and horses for a parade to Buckingham palace, at the Mall? And there will be gala events with jewels? Can't say I have seen anything like that for years.

It’s a state visit so they’ll be a banquet with tiaras. A banquet similar was held for Donald Trump when he visited for the second time last year.

As they’re staying at Windsor, I doubt we’ll see carriages.

The dimmed light at Windsor will give a much better sparkling effect to the diamonds and the table setup will allow us to see the guests better than we would at Buckingham Palace.

I would be very surprised if Harry and Meghan attended . They will probably be in their new home in Canada .

I think there will be carriages as the usual protocol in Windsor includes a State welcome at the Windsor station then a carriage procession to the castle via the Long Walk.

Can someone help me with the last State Visit that was hosted at Windsor?

The King and Queen of Spain were originally going to Windsor until the date was postponed.

I think it was the President of Ireland in 2014.

The King and Queen of Spain were going to be hosted at Windsor originally, but the visit was moved to Buckingham Palace after it was rescheduled.

Agreed! A worthy destination given that so many Imperial Family members have studied abroad in the United Kingdom and how fond the Emperor is of the country.

Will the state visit take place before or after the investiture in April?

The investiture of Crown Prince Akishino, which is scheduled for April.

I suspect it will be.
