Prince raps panel for rushing to allow female monarchs: magazine
Prince Tomohito of Mikasa, cousin of Emperor Akihito, has criticized a government panel on imperial succession for rushing to propose allowing female monarchs in Japan, according to a Japanese monthly magazine scheduled to go on sale Tuesday.
The prince suggests in an article in the February edition of Bungei Shunju that the panel should explore other options such as reinstating the royal status of imperial branch families and said there is "no need to immediately" come to a decision.
The advisory panel to Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi proposed on Nov. 24 allowing females and their descendants to ascend the throne, given that no male heir has been born into the royal family for the last 40 years, while ruling out having former imperial branch family members return to royal status. Prince Tomohito's remarks could raise eyebrows again after his controversial views, which came to light several weeks before the panel's recommendation, prompted Grand Steward of the Imperial Household Shingo Haketa to express concern.....................

I suppose there's some reason in his mind why empresses marrying commoners is unacceptable but emperors marrying commoners is OK. Some of these people need to learn a bit of basic biology.

Imperial Household Agency chief concerned over prince's remark
Imperial Household Agency chief Shingo Haketa expressed concern Thursday about remarks made by Prince Tomohito of Mikasa, a cousin of Emperor Akihito, criticizing a government panel on imperial succession that proposed allowing females and their descendants to ascend Japan's imperial throne.
Haketa told a press conference he "cannot help but be concerned as various remarks have emerged since the beginning of this year," and added, "Frankly, I'm really not sure how to react."...................

Emperor’s cousin: Don’t consider Crown Princess Masako’s woes in Japan succession row

TOKYO: A cousin of Emperor Akihito has said Japan should not consider the woes of Crown Princess Masako, who is under pressure to bear a male heir, in a dispute over allowing a female monarch.

Masako’s only child is four-year-old Princess Aiko, who cannot ascend the throne unless the current male-only succession law is changed.

But Prince Tomohito told Wednesday’s Sankei Shimbun: “It would be troublesome to make a decision by going down to the level of recognizing that ‘Princess Aiko is adorable’ or ‘Princess Masako would be freed from the pressure to produce an heir.’”...........................
