Maybe when the baby is a bit older. For the moment there are good reasons for her to stay behind, but as her son gets older that'll be less so.

Princess Kiko and her eldest daughter Princess Mako attended National Assembly for Youth Development meeting together on Nov. 12, 2006.
This is the first duty Princess Kiko performed outside of the Imperial Palaces after giving birth to Prince Hisahito in early Sept.

Baby Prince Hisahito visits shrine at Imperial Palace
Two-month-old Prince Hisahito, Emperor Akihito's first grandson, was taken Tuesday to the Kashikodokoro (Place of Awe), a temporary structure that is one of three shrines on the grounds of the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, for a ceremony called "Kyuchu-Sanden-ni-Essuruno-Gi."........Prince Akishino, the emperor's second son, and his wife Princess Kiko took the baby to the palace, where the emperor and Empress Michiko live. Prince Akishino, the emperor's second son, and his wife Princess Kiko met with reporters in front of the residence with their first son cradled in her bosom. "We call him Yu-chan now" by pronouncing the Chinese character for Hisa in a Japanese way, said Prince Akishino.
Prince Hisahito, the first heir to the imperial throne born in 41 years, is 58.5 centimeters tall and weighs 5,244 grams, according to the agency. Princess Kiko has taken him for a walk outside the residence on sunny days, with him in her arms, it said......

the baby is cutie, a little miracle in the royal family, may be masako can do another miracle soon!
Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

Hisahito looks a *lot* like Kiko and is a very sweet baby. Good to see these pictures of a happy couple with their healthy boy.

What a handsome little fellow he is!

And he'll remain one as long as he never chooses his father's hairstyle!
