Crown prince to visit Vietnam in Feb; Masako to stay home

Crown Prince Naruhito will pay an official visit to Vietnam from Feb 9 to 15 to attend events commemorating the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, government officials said Tuesday. Crown Princess Masako, who has been undergoing treatment for a stress-induced illness, however, will not accompany her husband.

The couple deemed the trip may be difficult for the princess, after consulting her doctor, considering the fact that they would be on a back-to-back schedule, according to the Imperial Household Agency.

I'm very sad and disappoint now

Perhaps she'll be able to visit some other time, emma93. I can see why you're disappointed. I'd like to see her be able to make a foreign visit.

Thanks for the article!
It is not surprising to read that the IHA and other parties concerned have not abandoned attempts to persuade Crow Princely couple to reinforce the bloodline with one more boy.

Quote:
Maintaining the imperial lifestyle and tradition is a primary concern for the agency.
"Therefore, producing a male heir became a main responsibility for Princess Masako," journalist Matsuzaki said. "This made it difficult for the princess to establish her new role, to promote international goodwill by making the most of her experience as a foreign diplomat."
The crown prince said that his wife was "greatly distressed that she was not allowed to make overseas visits for a long time."
"The birth of Prince Hisahito does not necessarily resolve every issue the current royal family faces," said Manabu Oshima, a reporter for the Japanese daily Sankei Shinbun.

I hope they do let her go. It will be probably good for her to travel a bit. It's not necessary to participate in every single event during the trip. It will be nice for them to go together.

Japan prince looks forward to Vietnam visit




TOKYO (AP): Japanese Crown Prince Naruhito said Thursday he is looking forward to exploring the waterways of Vietnam during his visit next week to mark the 35th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the countries.
The heir to the Japanese throne, who studied water travel and commerce when he was in college, will attend welcoming ceremonies and meet with top officials in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi before heading down to the ancient capital of Hue, the southern business center of Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong River.
"I'm looking forward to directly observing a great Asian river," Naruhito, 48, said at a rare news conference ahead of his scheduled departure Monday. "It would be my great pleasure to be able to deepen my personal research while serving my official duties."
Crown Princess Masako, 45, will not be accompanying him.
She has skipped most of her public duties over the last five years because of stress-related symptoms and mental depression. Palace doctors say Masako has been steadily recovering

There's a full-length picture among the Yahoo photos in which it's possible to almost see CP Masako's knees. How daring!

Perhaps someone here can explain to me how Masako is expected to produce an heir by staying home if the Prince is away...unless they are revisting the IVF. Frankly, given her age and prior infertility issues, it's the only way that it would be possible...short of a bolt of lightening.

It is not surprising that Crown Princess Masako has been allowed to accompany Crown Prince Naruhito to Vietnam. At least she looks more cheerful. I wonder why she is not allowed to undertake engagements abroad. I dare to assume that the IHA does not expect Crown Princely couple to produce an heir at this point in time.

I was hoping to see some pictures OF the visit, since Vietnam is such a pretty country but I can't even find them via search engine. Where could they be hiding. D=?

Whatever the problems within the dynasty, this little family always looks very happy to be together. It warms the heart.
