But what's happening to this poor lady? I see her stress is still there. I hope she could be allright in no time...

I also read that Empree Michiko was experiencing dizziness in the mornings. Poor ladies!

Crown Prince could lead the way in effort for mutt emancipation | The Japan Times Online

..........For that reason it would be great if Crown Prince Naruhito showed off his two dogs, Pippi and Mari, more often. According to the official story, pregnant, homeless Pippi wandered onto the palace grounds more than 10 years ago and there gave birth to Mari. The story is a little difficult to believe. Security around the palace is very tight and you almost never see stray dogs in central Tokyo. But the important thing is that the Crown Prince adopted the two canines. They even figure in the official portrait: The future royal family of Japan posing with two mutts.

Aiko looks adorable in her schooluniform! She's grown so much! She seems quite tall for her age, and not so shy anymore! Great to see the family together and smiling! Thanks for all the pictures and videos

A big step in Aiko's life. I'm sure for Mom Masako there is also a sense of "my baby is growing up" so she may feel a little sad about that. It's an adorable-looking family and the parents seem very proud of their little one.

I'm glad the journalist who wrote this article pointed to the fact that the onus on producing male heirs rested with the Imperial family and not on the mother's fertility. I have an issue also with a royal losing even the title of Princess, but guess this is the Japanese way.

She looks really, but really happy. Princess Aiko sure knows how to smile!

I wonder if Masako would join her husband to Spain, a kind of gift to celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary . I know that it's gonna be an official visit but they can also have quality time together. Unfornately, according to the article, the IHA announced that 'due to health and scheduling reasons' she would not . Wish her all the best
