I think Kiko is an incredibly selfless person, and i hope she will be Empress someday! She is ideally suited for it, imo.

Mirabel,
The Princess Kiko will never be the Empress, according to Japanese constitution. When the Crown Princely couple become the Imperial couple, a special traditional 'adoption ceremony' is to be held for Prince Hisahito and he will legally become a heir of his uncle.
The Japanese law recognizes the adopted children as legitimate heirs of the families which adopt them.
The next Emperor is Crown prince Naruhito, and Prince Hisahito after him. No throne for the Akishinos.
Sad or not, dura lex sed lex.

The Imperial Household Law of 1947:

<...>

Article 2. The Imperial Throne shall be passed to the members of the Imperial Family according to the following order:
    1. The eldest son of the Emperor
    2. The eldest son of the Emperor's eldest son
    3. Other descendants of the eldest son of the Emperor
    4. The second son of the Emperor and his descendants
    5. Other descendants of the Emperor
    6. Brothers of the Emperor and their descendants
    7. Uncles of the Emperor and their descendants
    8. <...>
Article 9. The Emperor and the members of the Imperial Family may not adopt children.
<...>

I thought Akishino will succeed his brother, and then Hisahito after him.

I think Kiko looks cute with her umbrella! I like the way she is consistently pleasant and never looks put out or bored.
(But I wish she would wear brighter colors sometimes).

They look so interested, especially Hisahito.
I like Kiko's striped jacket.

Since HM the Emperor is ill, and HIH the Crown Prince travels to Nadai (Yamanashi pref.), it was HIH the Prince Akishino who greeted this year's recipients of autumn decorations on behalf of the monarch.
The Prince read the address from the Emperor to this year's winners.
This is the first time that Prince Akishino meets 2 000 people on this occasion at the Imperial palace on November 15th, 2011.

Thanks for the updates!
The Bhutanese visit seems to be going well. It is nice that Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko joined Her Imperial Majesty and Crown Prince Naruhito.
On a different note, Princess Kiko's ensemble has autumn appropriate colours. Her pearls are magnificent.
