Wonderful news!
I must admit, I feared the worse given the Prince's age and seriousness of the condition.

Frankly, I was absolutely sure that he would not recover. He is 96, after all, he had a heart condition that had not been operated on earlier because of his advanced age, and he had to watch two of his sons die. That might be sufficient to kill a much younger man. As I said, his perseverance is simply amazing.

And I am very pleased to see how happy his wife, Princess Yuriko, looks, upon getting her husband back.

Quote:
Prince Mikasa, uncle of Emperor Akihito, has been hospitalized after partially losing consciousness at his home Tuesday evening, the Imperial Household Agency said Wednesday.

The 97-year-old youngest brother of the late Emperor Hirohito fell into a semiconscious state around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, but was back to normal before his doctor made a house call later, according to the agency.

The concert to commemorate the late Prince Tomohito was a lovely gesture.
Princess Akiko's ensemble is absolutely divine.
