Japan's Prince Akishino and his wife Princess Kiko arrive by car at Imperial Palace in Tokyo to meet Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2006. The Imperial Household Agency announced on Tuesday that Princess Kiko, wife of the second man in line to the throne, Prince Akishino, was in the early stages of pregnancy, delivering a possible solution to the royal family's much-bemoaned lack of male heirs.

Prince and Princess Akishino had dinner with them. Princess Kiko reported her pregnancy in person to the Imperial couple at the Imperial Residence.

Orchid flowers called ''Princess Kiko,'' named after the wife of Emperor Akihito's second son Prince Akishino, bloom for the first time at an orchid hall in Nagoya immediately after the princess' pregnancy was revealed on Feb. 7. The orchids are in one of the two pots in which the prince planted orchids in May 2004 in commemoration of the couple's marriage.

Prince Akishino at a flower exhibition today in Ginza area of Tokyo, Feb. 10, 2006. Princess Kiko was to attend this event along with her husband but cancelled it as she's beginning to reduce the amount of offiical duties since the announcement of her pregnancy.

Why are preparations for a nursery beginning now? She's only 6 weeks along- I don't want to wish anything but the best for her and the new baby but isn't that soon? And she's already scaling back on her official duties- is that because she's an older mother-to-be?

I wondered, is there any information about Princess Kiko available online? What causes does she support for example? From what kind of family is she? Is she, like Masako, prohibited to see her own parents on a regular basis as well? Is it known if she had any problems adjusting to life inside the palace?

She seems to be a charming lady btw, and always looks perfect, no hair out of order

Some information from Kunaicho website
Her Imperial Highness Princess Akishino, besides performing official duties and public activities along with His Imperial Highness Prince Akishino, assumed the role of Patroness of the Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association, succeeding the Late Princess Chichibu in June 1994. As the Patroness, Her Imperial Highness attends various ceremonial events such as the Anti- Tuberculosis National Convention and the Anti-Tuberculosis Municipality Commendation Ceremony to meet people who have rendered distinguished service in their respective fields, including trainees from overseas. Her Imperial Highness also attends the General Assembly of the Japanese Red Cross Society in her capacity as Honorary Vice President of the organization. From her school days, Her Imperial Highness has learned sign language as an important means of communication with persons with speech and hearing impairments. Her Imperial Highness attends the "Sign Language Speech Contest for High School Students" every August, which provides her with the opportunity to practice her sign language and enhance her understanding.
