Oooooooh....nice! I wonder whether we'll get any news coverage of the Emperor's visit, mandyy? News of our OWN Royals visiting isn't always on the radar here.

The former princess Sayako, only daughter of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan, now mrs Yoshiki Kuroda was also present at the exhibition.
Someone on Royaute 2 asked if she had children.
Alberto on Royaute 2 answered that she has at least one child?
Does someone have information about this imperial grandchild/children? When was it born?
Thanks for any information.

‘‘On hearing certain expressions or sounds of words from those around us that I think she may find funny, I glance at her and I have caught her looking at me with laughter in her eyes,’’ she said. ‘‘Moments like this make me feel very happy.’’..............
