They look attentive, neutral or bored to me. These are long court dresses with hats like the Netherlands' Prinsjesdag dress code. I agree the Japanese versions can veer into costume territory.

Personally, I love Princess Tsuguko's dress at the lecture and wish for a closer, full length photo. There are only partial views at various New Year's general greetings.

Better partial views of Nobuko and Tsuguko's dresses from New Year's greetings.
