Here's an article about their appearance at the Coronation. CP Masako looks wonderful.
Crown Prince, Princess attend Tonga coronation ceremony | The Japan Times

There are a two brief clips of the Crown Princely couple here:Video: Tongan King Tupou VI crowned in Nuku'alofa - Telegraph

Masako looks a bit nervous, but that's understandable. She seems to be showing some strain around her eyes as well. I think that she's doing all she can right now.

I agree. I feel kind of sad for her but I also think she is very brave, and that she is at least trying.

I think she is more relaxed when talking with people than during these high ceremonial occasions. It's very difficult to have any kind of emotional/mental issues and know that people are looking at you when you have to just stand or sit there quietly.

I remember reading a while back that on the rare occasions the Crown Princess does travel abroad her therapist always accompanies the couple in the event of some crisis.

I don't know if that is still happening or even necessary. She appears happy and confident. But then she could also be a woman of enormous discipline who has simply become adept at masking any signs of emotional distress in public.

Good luck to her, I agree Mermaid1962 that it must be quite an ordeal to know that people are watching you closely under those circumstances.

Thanks for the update!
The trip to Tonga was absolutely successful. Crown Princess Masako looked cheerful.

I sincerely hope that now she'll be able to go with the Crown Prince on more foreign trips. He cuts a rather lonely figure sometimes.

I wish the Japanese Diet would change the law of succession to allow Princess Aiko (the Princess Toshi) to inherit the imperial throne, but, realistically, I know that probably is never going to happen.

Perhaps she will be better off, because she'll have a less-restricted life.

I'm divided on this. On the one side yes Aiko will live a quite life but on the other must change this Japanese Diet and not have this pressure of the male heir. But as Mbruno says i guess never( going to happen.
