I wonder why they do happen so often, I was always under the impression each Head of State could only make a state visit to another once in a reign/time in office. Hence why we see a disproportionate number of state visits from republics like America and France vs monarchies like Denmark and the UK.

So back to Luxembourg / Belgium / Netherlands, I suppose all have a recent history of abdications which makes it seem they have a lot of state visits or do they do more than one visit?

That's the UK custom, different in this case as in so many others...

The US is presently hosting Korea to a state visit. And Pres. Biden has certainly trotted out all the pomp and circumstances, including a fife and drum band in uniforms that look back to the Revolutionary War.

I have the feeling the state visits will be a lot less grand than they were in the past. Not only with Charles toning them down, but also on the continent. Tiaras may be but a lovely memory soon.

It would be surprising if state visits would become even grander.

I think the banquets will have tiaras for at least the next two generations. They're white tie and it's not like they need to buy any new ones.  But overall I agree, much like during the last few generations, the scale of historic jewels will become more and more minimal.

Just because of the way they generally dress and act, I get the impression that neither Kate nor Camilla is itching to dive too deeply into the late Queen's jewel box. Small pieces, maybe, but I wonder just how often we will see some of the big-gun tiaras in the future?
