Yes, she does.
But then, Crown Princess Masako always looks wonderful, in my opinion. It's just good to see her so relaxed and peacful, with her beautiful smile back.

I think all 3 Royal Ladies looked good.

She looks great. With longer hair, she looks young and fresh. Love to see her smile. The Crown Prince also looks happy. Glad to see them together.

I agree! OMG, Masako looks exactly like in the 90s when she first married Naruhito! I hope that means she is really getting better......

Yes. Princess Masako looks lovely and very regal. It's easy to say she is better. Her husband looks very well too, even if he has some health troubles. Princess Kiko appears in excellent condition too. Then...why does not Prince Akishino wants to match his charming Imperial family, and changes his ugly hairdoss???!!! (So sorry to say that, Your Imperial Highness!!!) :tonks:

Interesting article susan.

This remark made me wonder...

Quote:
Tomohito said his dependency worsened in recent years because of family problems and stress from a controversy about whether the imperial succession law should be changed to allow a female emperor.
was the Prince afraid he himself had to take care of male offspring? He was very eager on imperial concubines as far as I can remember

Oh, well, that's all right, then - another thing we can blame Masako for.

Good grief. He's far enough down the line of succession that this should have been irrelevant to him.
