  4. And may there be many, many more happy anniversaries to follow.
    What a pity their state visit to England had to be cancelled this year.
    It would have been a busy time for the "newmyroyals" site with all the elegant gowns and attire which would have been put on parade.
    Hopefully it will be re-programmed in the near future.

  5. Quel beau couple qui paraît toujours très amoureux et complice ; sur la première photo, nous voyons la ressemblance de l’impératrice avec sa fille Aiko. C'est avec beaucoup d'impatience que j'attends leur nouvelle visite d'Etat en Angleterre peut-être en 2021 ?!
