This is great news concerning Princess Sayako's November wedding. I do hope that it will be a really glittering event.

after the event that will be the end of any glitter, according to Harpers & Queen of february 2005 in an article by colin joyce:

"Amid all the excitement, it was easy to forget that her marriage will also mark the end of her time as a royal; Princess Sayako will become plain Mrs. Kuroda. Unlike her brothers, she will not be entitled to rooms in one of the palaces, a host of servants and a stipend of some 240.000 ponds a year. Her children will be born commoners. She will have a generous one-off payment, but after that, she can expect to live in a small appartment on a civil servant's salary of some 35.000 ponds a year"

Thank you for the pictures, mandyy. I didn't know there was a ceremony to announce the wedding date.

I find the Princess very elegant, and all smiles, as ever.

I can't wait to see the wedding!

It would be great to see the Wedding of The Princess, she 's such an elegant Princess with a lovely traditional Japanese look.But it would be really sad that Princess Sayako will leave The Royal Family and become a common person, wish all the bests for her.

Thanks mandyy for posting these wonderful pictures, Princess Sayako looks really great - happy and exuberant! Fascinating to get a little insight to all these traditional ceremonies that surrounds a wedding like this.

Wearing a long gray gown and black hat, Sayako on Thursday Oct. 6 made a ritual pilgrimage to the graves of her ancestors to report her upcoming marriage to them. Sayako bowed deeply in the rain before the graves of her grandfather, wartime emperor Hirohito, and his wife Nagako

more photos of the tea party to celebrate the princess' marriage. Invited the persons concerned of Yamashina Institute for Ornithology, and the teachers of her alma mater (the Gakushuin school) to the Imperial house. They talked with the princess, the emperor and empress. Such a party is planned 3 times by the 15th of the next month.

Yes? it's really sad that Princess Sayako no more a member of the Royal Family.
But for me she's still a '' Princess Norinomiya'' of Japan. She is always a daughter of ''The Emperor and Empress'' of Japan.
Nobody can deny that. That's why?

Next week i go to Japan and if possible try to make photo's at the front of the ''Imperial Palace Hotel''.
