  1. I guess hat making is not particularily a 'hot job'. One trick pony er...hat over and over. Only the Empress shows some flair.
    These bowler hats are awful.

  2. And.... they all wear the same shoes. Bland colors on coats. I would lose my mind w all the conformity. I mean don't we all like to dance on a table at some point?

    1. It's all so strange. "Stepford" royals. [Even their names are almost identical!]

    2. Diane, who knows what they do at home, far away from the watchful eyes of the public ;-) How do you do, my friend Diane?

    3. Diane Brown ~ The Imperial Household dictates every single aspect of the Japanese royal family's life, right down the matching style of clothing and shoes that the women wear. This shocking lack of any sort of freedom or individuality is the reason why CP Masako developed her "nervous condition".

    4. Yes I have read this Uknown. I do not understand why they don't revolt. The peoplw would side w them. They are really behind the times. Japan is one of the most advanced countries in the world.

      I too would have a breakdown..

      @ Coralie ~I am doing alright. Debating on where I should move .... stressful. Thank you for asking.

  3. Love that beautiful deep green on the Crown Princess, yet whenever I see the Japanese Royal Family I always feel like I am looking at photos from another moment in time... perhaps the 1950's or 1960's... a time when women didn't leave the house without their hat and gloves.

    1. CP Masako does look quite lovely and the deep green is a beautiful color on her. I also love the length of her hair.

  4. That's the Japanese discipline no doubt about it. And! They always show respect for the elderly.
    Maybe it is a Good Bye visit from the Emperor and to introduce his son as the next one on duty. I do like Masako's outfit and her smile!!
