The princes of Asturias travel to Japan to visit the Expo de Aichi

MARIÁNGEL ALCÁZAR - 02/06/2005
TOKIO

The princes of Asturias arrive today at Tokyo after surpassing the twelve flight hours, plus the seven of hour difference, that separate Madrid of the Japanese capital. Don Felipe and Doņa Letizia travel to Japan with the objective to visit the Expo de Aichi.
Yesterday, in average afternoon, Don Felipe and Doņa Letizia they took off on Barajas on board off an official airplane of the Spanish Air Force used normally for the trips of State. The House of the King chose this option, as opposed to the one of the regular flight or a smaller official airplane, to facilitate the trip to the Princess, pregnant of 16 weeks, since the Airbus is formed, in its front part, with two rooms that include bed. In the security of the Princes appears a doctor.

Until only yesterday the uncertainty stayed about the possibility that the princess was finally low in the trip. The House of the King has prepared the trip giving by made the presence of Doņa Letizia in Japan and the program with this premise has been elaborated, although the spokesmen of the Zarzuela always have put upon the table the eventuality of which the doctor who takes care of the princess advised against the trip.

The displacement to Japan was programmed several months ago and existed the commitment of the House of the King to the organizers of the Expo of which the princes of Asturias would visit the Spanish pavilion of Aichi. The trip had been prepared for the month of April, period in which the inheriting princes of Holland, Guillermo and Maxima traveled to Japan, and those of Denmark, Federico and Mary. As much Maxima Zorreguieta as Mary Donalson was pregnant women, first of five months, and second, of three.

The incipiente pregnancy of Doņa Letizia prevented to program the visit for the month of April and it was delayed until June in order that she had surpassed the 16 weeks of gestation. The commitments acquired with Japan have forced the House of the King to follow with the plans, although they was afraid that the annoyances of the princess put in danger their presence in this pasís. Finally, yesterday, with the permission of her doctor, Doņa Letizia rose the airplane to Tokyo.

The Princes left yesterday in the evening Madrid and is predicted that today at noon (seven hours less in Spain) they arrive at the Japanese capital. The program of the visit will begin tomorrow Friday with the attendance of the Princes to the inauguration of VIII the Forum Spain-Japan and at night they will go to the Imperial Palace, to have supper with emperors Akihito and Michiko.

Saturday, Don Felipe and Doņa Letizia will offer a reception to the Spanish colony in Japan, before traveling to Nagoya, capital of the province of Aichi, where Universal Exhibition 2005 is located. The princes of Asturias will return to Tokyo and that same day they will have supper with the inheriting prince, Naruhito, and his wife, Masako. According to the official program, Don Felipe and Doņa Letizia will be received solely by the Japanese heir, since princess Masako, although will participate in the supper, will not appear in public.

Felipe de Borbón and his wife, Letizia Ortiz, travelled to Japan, where they will stay for three days. The personal doctor accompanies the princess, since she has already turned her fourth month of pregnancy. This is her first long distance trip, since the pregnancy announcement.

The main reason for the trip of the Princes will be the visit to the Universal Exhibition of Aichi, although the program also includes their participation in the VIII Forum Spain-Japan, which will be celebrated at the Spanish embassy in Tokyo. That same day, prince Felipe and his wife will be received by the emperors of Japan, Akihito and Michiko, who will offer them a dinner at the ImperialPalace and, on the following day, they are expected to meet the Spanish community in Japan. Afterwards, they will travel to Nagoya, capital of the province of Aichi, to attend the Universal Exhibition 2005, entitled 'The wisdom of Nature’.

On Sunday, June 5th, the princes of Asturias will visit the Expo and return, on the very same day, to Tokyo. There, they shall have dinner with Crown Prince Naruhito and his wife, Masako, at the Palace of Akasaka.

This purse of Letizia is so cute: there's a baby-purse attached to the mother-purse! A perfect metaphor of her state! :)

Because she's naturally thin. I doubt that she will balloon into her pregnancy. I guess she wouldn't have to worry about losing the baby weight after giving birth.

The Princes of Asturias will preside tomorrow over the VIII Forum Spain-Japan, which is celebrated at the Embassy of Spain in Tokyo, with the attendance of high Japanese and Spanish authorities. The Forum Spain-Japan is a promotional instrument of the bilateral relations (in all the political, economic, social and cultural scopes), which is supported by the Ministries of Outer Subjects of both countries. It was created in 1997 and this is the eighth edition of the Forum.

The Spanish and Japanese delegations are formed by personalities from culture, enterprise, policy and administration of both countries. During the working sessions, which will be celebrated on Friday and Saturday, the participants will debate matters like the mutual promotion of tourism, the state of both economies, cultural interchanges, the teaching of languages, alternative energies, democracy and public opinion, as well as other subjects of the international agenda.

A few more arrival images from Hola along the same lines as the others.

According to Hola tomorrow's dinner at the Imperial Palace is a Gala--but we'll have to wait and see, Hola is, as we all know, not all that reliable.

That would be great but I somehow doubt it. Haakon and Frederik&Marys dinner with the Imperial couple was just a regular suit dinner.
