I love the dinner pics, Camilla was chatting nonstop to Naruhito, Royals with a more important rank sat besides WA and Maxima (Lalla Salma and Albert). Really love, love those pictures. They all seemed so happy.
About Naruhito faking smile, he's not faking it. I think for the very first place, Masako was not supposed to attend this dinner because of the long flight. All we knew was that it was announced she will attend the investiture, not this dinner. Of course I was sad, since I expected to much, but she came to The Netherlands and will attend tomorow, so I'm really happy anyways.

Can someone tell me what are the dresscode for tomorow? Will the ladies wear long dresses and hats?

But are they criticizing Masako? And sorry if I'm off topic, but exactly what she has? Depression or something even worse, like panic disorder?

It's the Prinsjesdag dress code, I guess.

She has had depression over the years because of harsh pression.

Are you watching tv?
I very much hope you are right, I was judging just from the few pics I saw - Naruhito is very good at faking smiles. But I would have to see more coverage to be sure. If he should actually be cheerful, that would give me some hope because he, of course, knows best what the consequences could be.

Unfortunately, she definitely was scheduled to attend the banquet, that is certain. (Source) Regarding the rest, see above.
(Maybe Naruhito thinks that they will be criticized no matter what, so it does not make that much of a difference anyway. Let´s hope it...)

Officially, she has got "adjustment disorder", which is sort of a culture shock that mostly children experience when they come to live in another country. But by definition this condition does not last any longer than 6 months, so this is of course complete nonsense. Whatever Masako suffers from, it cannot possibly be "adjustment disorder".

Just like Kathia Sophia said, most watchers suppose that it must be some sort of depression she is suffering from. What is certainly characteristic for her condition is that there are very sudden ups and downs. When she is well, she can be very well, but this can change all of a sudden, and then again she is very bad again.
And just like Kathia Sophia also said, all this is due to the enormous pressure she is living under. Before her marriage, she was a very cheerful, serene, outgoing, vigorous woman.

Edit: Ouups, sorry for double posting! I thought there should have been many new posts in the meantime...

Are any of the VanVollenhoven cousins at the dinner? I thought I had seen their names on the guest list.
The Queen, Willem and Maxima look wonderful and happy! I love being able to see "history in the making".
I love Crown Princess Mary's dress. She is so beautiful. And, Mathilde...gorgeous. Mette-Marit....looks like the blonde, beautiful Norwegian that she is...but, I do think the dress looks like an old-fashioned nightgown for a cold night. Stephanie is adorable. But, I think the dress looks a little old for her. Perhaps, she just has a childlike look in her delicately-featured face...which causes that contrast?
Anyway, all the dresses and jewels are delightful to see and a wonderful relief from what we see in the rest of the news. I am grateful that these Monarchies still exist. :)

Thanks for all the answers. I have read before that she had/has depression and that she couldn't manage the royal life, but reading the posts today I thought she could have another disease.

And, I always wonder which language the royals are using to do their chatting. :)
