      Probably 1) because of the people sitting beside them in the same room, or 2) to set an example to the people watching them on the other end of the call.

  2. Un couple toujours à l'unisson qui sait accorder les couleurs de leur tenue ; Masako en gris et bleu-marine avec la touche de blanc des perles des boucles d'oreilles et du petit pendentif et Naruhito également en gris, cravaté dans un bleu plus nuancé - Quelle classe !
