I couldn't get over the sense of joy she had in her face when she was in Austria and the complete lack of emotion she had when she got back home. She looked depressed, sad and miserable.

How utterly tragic that a young woman should have that look on her face when going home, after having been in a foreign country for 2 weeks.

I really like that look for her, but it seems a bit risque for the imperial family, IMO.

I do not know why she would get depressed to return home...The first time I travelled alone (to Europe! ) it was wonderful for me, but when I returned home I felt very happy too. I missed my beloved ones (not only my parents but my friends, my brother and the rest of my relatives) and wanted to see them again...and of course, I wanted to show them all the fotos and videos I got, and tell them all I have experienced there.

I think that, when you are VERY far of your family for the first time in your life, you begins to realize the true importance of the words "family" and "friends". I do not see why it would be different for a young Princess.

As for the "liberty" think, of course, she has a little more of it than in her own house, but don't think that she had MUCH more liberty...She is the daughter of a Prince, and not a "common one", but the brother of the Crownprince of a country: the first one in the succesory line. So she must have been surveyed seriously, and journalist should always there, ready to find something to gossip about. She couldn't do all she wanted to. It could have been dangerous. I remember perfectly that, when Prince Harry of England visited Argentina (my country) and he went to an "Estancia" ( a big kind of farm) to pass some days with a high family from here...He loved to go all nights to pubs, and journalist went there just to said that he was a drunkard, a thing that could or not be true... It's very dangerous to do something "free" only for you are far from home. In all circumstances, you are a Prince or a Princess, and you must mind about that...I think that Princess Kako is very dutyfull and she behaved like the Princess she is.

Vanesa.

Thanks for the video!
I think there was a hint of a smile (Kako) in the video, that is if you watch carefully....

Lovely! The Princess is charming in her school suit. I always liked Japanese school suits. And yes...If you looks carefully the images, Princess Kako has a start of a smile in her lips.

They looks very happy entering at school. People uses to think (for any osbcure reason -that these two Princesses are sad people,and much more currently, that they had a brother...(Oh! Bad boys! They would be banished from the earth. Only women must be able to live. ) Time to time, people uses to point out how "sad" Princesses Kako and Mako looks. Hope this time, seeing them smiling, people would realize this isn't true.

Maybe these girls are just a little bit shy and don't like smiling for cameras.

Interestingly enough of Princess Kako apparently is a skater, and I hear she even won a junior competition a couple of years back.. Who knows if she may move up in that sport? Could be interesting if the emperor's granddaughter becomes a star figure skater. Although in Japan that would be really hard because they have the best ladies in the world.

Exactly. You said it! I'm a little shy myself, and when someone sees a pic from me, always believes I'm angry to someone or very sad...and it's just I don't like to be photographed very much. What if the two princesses are just shy, like me?

Thank you! She is wonderful practicing the sport she really likes...There, the Princess don't looks exactly "sad" or "shy".

Change the **** to a word which people use as an alternative to "poo". This word is "s h i t" without the spaces in between the letters.

Good for her! It seems that Princess Kako is a good skater, isn't she?

Well, if that's the tape. She's certainly a better skater than I am. But the next Mao Asada, she's not.

Well...Evidently she is NOT. She is a Princess, not a professional skater.The problem is that I compared her with my poor performances in these kind of disciplines. I wouldn't even know how to stand in a skate without falling on my back in a shameful way! :w00t2:
