  1. It's nice to see photos of the non-European Royals! (No offense whatsoever meant to the blog - I know those photos are hard to come by!)

  2. I truly believe Crown Princess Masako is a blow of fresh air that blows into the Japan royal family, but what a pity she can't display her capabilities.

  3. I believe your true Masako was stifled a long time ago by the rituals of the Japanese court. She will still be the Empress some day so I hope that she can make the most of that position.

  4. Very traditional masquerades in beautiful Japan. Oh dear. I bet it is not easy for her. She seems to be a very nice woman. Give her a pink dress and a beautiful hat like Maxima's, it would be amazing. Well, but traditions...

  5. I do like this couple, he has stood by her right through the difficult time she went through. Such a shame that their daughter will not be allowed to take the Japanese throne, but I understand their system and how difficult it must be too bring about such radical change. Rome wasn't built in a day eh!

  6. Their customs are too much for me. I love tradition and ritual but it's 2016 and women have ruled many countries for thousands of years. I don't get why Japan doesn't come out of the feudal times. Japan is such a forward thinking country and so modern in so many ways yet these feudal views remain. Maybe when the CP becomes Emperor some changes will be made. Though understand that courtiers pretty much tell them how it be daily. Masako is so talented and could do so much.
