There was also this, about Bowing in Japanese culture, in general: Bowing In Japan [Japanese Etiquette] - Tofugu
You learn something new everyday :) So he's doing it the right way :P

Edit: Read the link. The head bow (which is the one William does) the article says is informal for close friends. But since they are royal both... How does the other royals do (both with each other but mostly, with the JIF)? Obama's was wrong, right? Because both of them is heads of state he shouldn't bow, right? Or maybe just do a little nod :P

I guess the thread was moved. So I was wrong, apparently they are in the host countries thread....

Let's not forget his father, who very much has had an impact on William's style of approach.

I'm sure Charles is proud and watching with keen interest. (As my mother used to say: Let's not forget the living in our justifiable deference to the dead).

My point was solely that with the woman present the triviality of dress and shoes and hair tends to absorb the attention, and it does. No more than that.

I knew what you meant, Lady Nimue. I wasn't coming down on your comment. Sorry if that's how it all came off.

He really looked like he was enjoying himself and getting into the spirit of things wasn't he? From what I read, he put on the Samurai outfit when he was on a set where they were making a historical program.

Aha, ok. :P He seems to have really fun. I love their little instagram video with him and the kids. He's so comfortable. You can really tell he knows how to interact with kids.

Prince William was greeted by screaming crowds eager to get a glimpse of him as he visited a bookshop on the third day of his Japanese tour.

Crowds held up pictures of William and Kate, while one woman showed off a painting of the royal couple and Prince George.

The event, being staged by the Tsutaya Bookshop on the outskirts of Tokyo, highlights UK innovation and collaboration between Britain and Japan, including work being done by luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin-

Check out William Juggling with the Kids-
Prince William has met staff and pupils at a children's play school in Fukushima today, on day three of his official visit to Japan. Accompanied by the Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe, the 32 year old royal got into a ball pit to play with some of the children, before venturing outside, where he planted a tree with the help of one of the play school's children. However, the visit has drawn some criticism from some people who have accused Mr Abe of using the prince to promote his pro-nuclear policies-

I really don't understand why this thread was moved in Japan forum. The Duke spent with the imperial family only one or two hours and 3 days without any japanese royal.

The pictures of Wills in the ball pit.
You have one little girl who has firmly joined the ranks of " Prince William Fan for Life Club, a little boy trying to drag William in, and I can't tell you who's having more fun here- the kids or William. TBH, I don't see a Prince here- I see William, and I see a Daddy,and I love it! I see a ball pit in George's future.
Tea with the Emperor one day- playing with kids the next. YRH, you rock! That's what I would call having a ball, literally!
When do we get today's photos?

From the TRF FAQ:

Quote:
When royals make state or official visits to other monarchies, the thread is started in the forum for the host country, not the forum for the visiting country. The only state-visit threads in the visiting-country forums are those for visits to republics or for visits to multiple countries.
This is standard practice here at TRF - every other monarchy-to-monarchy visit, no matter how much time is spent with the hosts - is in the host monarchy forum.

If anyone wishes to discuss this further, please do so via PM with a member of the moderating team. Posts on the matter in thread will be removed.

Very pleasant pictures. William is very comfortable to watch.

P.S. Did I mention triviality with the wife present? How about those balloons?

Has anyone either read of or noticed in photos who the Duke took along as staff? Not a huge number, considering that I have not noticed. It was not mentioned in the original press release,either.

Edit - on further review - I think I see Miguel Head. But no one else. Anyone?
