Whilst specific dates for the state visit haven't been announced yet, my guess is that the visit will be at the end of November, possibly 28-30 November. The South Korean party are scheduled to have a state visit to the Netherlands in early December.
 
Looking forward to the State Visit, tiara events have become scare in the UK!

Me too! Do we know for sure there will be tiaras? Because the French state visit turned out to be black tie.

If The President decides so…. Crown Princess Victoria did recive the Grand Gwangwha Medal of the Order of Diplomatic Service Merit during the South Korean State Visit to Sweden in 2019… But that was done by the former president Moon Jae-in
 
Does Charles III an Korean order?

They would probably have got a dutch and a spanish order if the brits would be not so stingy with their Orders and had been given one to the respective Queens.

Here's a video from earlier with the Prince and Princess of Wales
 
The Duke of Gloucester has accompanied The President and First Lady of the Republic of Korea, as they lay a wreath at the Korean War Memorial in London.

The memorial honours the 81,000 individuals who served in the Korean War, seventy years on since the truce was signed.

 
Official gifts from TM's

I know there were many who did not like Camilla having her dogs and children's names embroidered on her coronation gown but she has gifted the First Lady a pashmina with the national flower of Korea and the First Lady's dogs named embroidered on it. I find that to be quite a sweet and personal gift.
 
The Kitchens at BP have been busy putting finishing touches to dishes that will be served at tonight’s State Banquet.

These centre pieces, crafted out of sugar, represent the Hibiscus Syriacus, the national flower of the Republic of Korea, and will be presented alongside petit fours.

 
No order exchange?
 
Kate with a different tiara, hallelujah!
 
Catherine is wearing a different tiara. And she's using Queen Elisabeth II's RFO.

Again, no new Charles III RF order. I guess that was it with Family Orders for the british royal family...!
