Japan's princesses find different fates
Tokyo - Both are commoners who married into the world's oldest monarchy. But while former career woman Crown Princess Masako struggles to cope, housewife Kiko seems to relish the chance to be an emperor's mother.
Gossip media have intensely compared the two princesses and their husbands as 39-year-old Kiko prepares Wednesday to have her third child, which could give Japan its first male heir in four decades.
Masako, a US-educated former diplomat, withdrew from the public spotlight in late 2003, a decade after marrying Crown Prince Naruhito at age 29. She is under intense pressure to bear a boy as the couple's only child is a girl.
However, Kiko, who married Naruhito's younger brother Akishino when she was 23, is reputed to have adjusted well with help from Empress Michiko, herself the first commoner to marry into the household.
Speculation of sibling rivalry emerged in 2004 when Naruhito accused royal minders of stifling Masako's personality and his younger brother rebuked him for his unprecedented public criticism.
Hideo Shinozawa, professor emeritus of Gakushuin University, a private college that educates young royals, said he could see the brothers' differences emerge from how they were raised...............

The prince of conmen who lost his crown
THE wedding reception of Prince Satohito Arisugawa, kinsman of the Japanese Emperor and scion of an ancient aristocratic house, was everything an imperial marriage ought to be.

The venue was an exclusive Tokyo club known as a haunt of royalty. Prince Arisugawa was splendid in his black military uniform and glittering medals. About 350 guests, including actors, politicians and TV celebrities, presented the traditional Japanese wedding gift — envelopes of banknotes.
True, most of the assembled guests did not know the couple, there were no other members of the Imperial Family there, and in her junihitoe, a twelve-layered kimono worn by court ladies in the 10th century, the bride was perhaps a little overdressed — even for a princess. NI_MPU('middle');
But it was only when journalists got hold of the story a few weeks later that the guests realised the truth: Prince Arisugawa, the man to whom they had collectively given 13 million yen (£60,000), was actually Yasuyuki Kitano, the son of a greengrocer who formerly worked as a security guard and caretaker....

Teenage trooper's suicide reveals the darker side of the Imperial Guard
October 6, 2006

below are some quotes taken from the article:

...Tragedy struck Akasaka Palace, the home of Crown Prince Naruhito and Prince Akishino and their families, when a 19-year-old Imperial Guard member was found in a toilet with a fatal gunshot wound, according to Shukan Bunshun (10/12).

...The young guard was on duty from 8:30 until the following morning. He was on guard at the main gate of the Togo Palace from 9 a.m., watching over as Crown Prince Naruhito left to take Princess Aiko to kindergarten," an Imperial Police insider tells Shukan Bunshun.

...When the guard was found, Crown Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako were inside Togo Palace just 70 meters away, and Princess Aiko was eating her lunch at Gakushuin Kindergarten. The guard was rushed to a hospital for treatment at nearby Keio Hospital, but confirmed dead shortly after arrival....

Kiko, understandably, looks exhausted. I have never seen her so disheveled looking. Not blaming in the least -- these are just interesting pictures for their 'sports mom watching event' quality. I find them refreshing. Very nice to see the two sisters-in-law together.

The other thing I find interesting is that I have always thought Masako to be so much bigger than Kiko and yet they are the same size. I always thought Kiko was really tiny - they both are!
