King Charles III's office has delighted fans with a sneak peek of the State Banquet table in the Buckingham Palace in honour of the Emperor and Empress of Japan.

The royal family's social media accounts shared the breathtaking video on Tuesday, giving a glimpse of the preparation for the evening’s State Banquet.

As per the statement, the King - accompanied by the Queen and other members of the Royal Family - will give a State Banquet at Buckingham Palace at which The King and the Emperor will make speeches.

The Emperor and Empress of Japan, who are currently undertaking a State Visit to the UK as guests of The King and Queen, were met by The King and Queen on Horse Guards, before the Emperor was invited to inspect a Guard of Honour formed of the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards.

State Visits to the UK generally take place twice a year in the winter and early summer, and are an opportunity for building relationships with other countries. The visiting Head of State is officially hosted by The King and Queen.

This afternoon, following a private lunch at Buckingham Palace, the Emperor and Empress viewed a special exhibition in the Picture Gallery of items from the Royal Collection relating to Japan.

The Emperor and Empress will undertake a number of other engagements including a visit to The Francis Crick Institute, the UK’s flagship biomedical research centre and a Banquet at the Guildhall ahead of formal farewells at Buckingham Palace on Thursday.
