emma93,
Thanks for new pictures! Crown Princely couple looks very happy, indeed. What was the occasion for these photos to be taken?

In Point De Vue #3146 from Nov 5 to 11 they have an article about Masako. According to Antoine Michelland there may be a divorce in the making.

There is always a divorce in the making when it comes to Naruhito and Masako. It would make things nice and tidy for the IHA.

However, anyone that has seen the most recent photos of them could never believe that two people who could look at each other with such affection are on the verge of divorce.

It remains to be seen whether the divorce rumours are true. It is quite possible that the IHA may surprise us.

Is "sama" a way of referring to a lady? Just curious.

It's the formal version of san. This honorific is used primarily in addressing persons much higher in rank than oneself and in commercial and business settings to address and refer to customers. It also appears in words used to address or speak of persons or objects for which the speaker wishes to show respect or deference.

No, it's a very polite way of addressing people. You won't use it between freinds though.

It's similar then to the french "vous" as opposed to "tu." The difference seems to be that it's used for the third person and not the second. Thank you.

Both Naruhito and Masako look so happy together. They look fresh and younger than their age. I hope they can continue performing duties together.

The Royal Couple seem very happy together for a couple on the verge of divorce.

aaaah more pics!

Aiko sama is shooting up, it seems!

She reminds me of Michiko sama when she was a young lass....both very pretty.

I live in England, so I appreciate their news and pics I get to read and see here.

I have heard of negative media coverage in Japan on CP Masako- what some people dont understand is, people who have mental disorder can come across "fine", around their friends and family..., but they find it difficult to cope when they are put under pressure or alot of stress. I had few patients who seemed absolutely, completely well when I saw them at hospital where I work (yeah I'm a nurse) when in fact they werent fine at all and they were on strong medication.

All I'm saying is it's easy to judge from outside.

I admire CP Naruhito. He is a decent guy with a good heart. And he loves his wife, that is clearly obvious...he beams when she is by his side.

I wish them the best

Seiko
