  1. The most sartorially interesting outfit here is that worn by CP Naruhito. When did we last see a royal in a suit of green? Maybe it's the effect of that red background...but that suit is growing on me. Western royal gentlemen, take note!

  3. Prince Naruhito looks never happier than when he has his wife by his side.
    When he attended with Princess Masako to King Willem-Alexander's investiture he positively glowed with happiness. The way both Masako and their daughter look at him speaks louder than words about the love and admiration they feel for him.

  4. Quel est l'âge de princesse Aiko ... quatorze ans?
    Pauvre petite fille, tenue terrible pour une adolescente...

  5. Truly good to see them out AGAIN as a family!

    I still say the Imperial House needs to change the law of succession. I am sure that the stress of no son played a huge role in Masako's anxiety disorder. Imagine the pressure? They all want an heir and a son. But the Japanese are still very firm in the rules. As a culture they are firm in those rules. I am sure having the masses look at you and ask why no baby ..why no son must have been so difficult.

    They can say all they want that she had difficulty adapting to royal life and duties. But she was highly educated and worldly so I am not sure that was the issue. At any rate YES Blondini I agree with you! Good to see her out!
