So, this little sweet girl feel sad for people who is standing out in the cold just to see their Imperial Family? She is really a dear...Even if she doesn't smile. She is an angel!

That's right on! It was during the past New Year's celebrations and the Crown Prince family were on their way to the Imperial Palace to greet the Emperor and Empress. Prince Naruhito shared this during a press conference in February/March.

I think Aiko does not smile because she is impressed of the press. I must not be easy to have lots of photographers in front of you! Perhaps she is shy. By the way, she is very cute!

Crown prince, princess leave for 2-week rest in Netherlands
.....................This is the first time that a member of the imperial family has gone abroad to recuperate.
The crown prince, 46, and the crown princess, 42, last traveled overseas together in December 2002 on an official visit to New Zealand and Australia. This foreign trip is the first for their 4-year-old daughter. After arriving in Amsterdam on a Japan Airlines plane, the family will travel by car to Apeldoorn in the eastern Netherlands, where they will stay at a castle as guests of the Dutch royal family........................

Japan's stressed princess seeks respite in Netherlands
Masako, wearing a beige jacket, flew from Narita airport near Tokyo accompanied by her husband, Crown Prince Naruhito, and their four-year-old daughter, Princess Aiko, who sported a pink dress and carried a brown basket.................."It is a very private visit," a palace official said on customary condition of anonymity. "They will meet Queen Beatrix and Crown Prince Willem Alexander, but other than that no itinerary has been set up."
The family plans to stay at a remote palace in Apeldoorn, a suburb of Amsterdam, accompanied by 11 attendants including Masako's doctor Yutaka Ono.
The party is as small as possible because the family is financing the visit with its own money. The royal family flew by commercial airplane....................."I think Queen Beatrix was worried about Masako," Toshiya Matsuzaki, a journalist closely watching the Japanese imperial family, said in a television interview.
The Aera weekly noted that Dutch Crown Princess Maxima visited Japan last year to attend the World Exposition when she was eight months pregnant -- which would never be allowed for a woman in the Japanese imperial family.
"Crown Princess Maxima enjoys such liberty," Aera wrote, quoting a Dutch journalist. "Some sources say Maxima asked (the queen) to invite Masako" after seeing her in Tokyo.

Japan's Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako, accompanied by their daughter Prince Aiko, leave New Tokyo International Airport in Narita, Japan August 17, 2006. The royal family departed for the Netherlands on a two-week holiday tour.

I think they look wonderful. Masako looks so relaxed both in her facial smile and the fact that her hair is at a longer, more 'relaxed', length. I have been looking forward to this visit and so hope it is perfect for them. Can't wait for the photos tomorrow.

Maybe Masako looks happy, because she feels great relief. If Kiko's baby is a boy - little Aiko will be able to live her own life in the future.
What is your opinion - does Princess Masako want her daughter to be the future Empress of Japan?

Good luck with photos, dutch royal! That would be exciting to leave near the palace and perhaps see some of the comings and goings of the royals. Anna, I really don't know what Masako thinks about her daughter being Empress. I can see reasons on both sides of the argument as to why Masako might and might not want Aiko to be an empress. I truly hope that Masako and her family find happiness, though.

Crown prince, princess arrive in Netherlands for summer rest
Crown Prince Naruhito, his wife Crown Princess Masako and their daughter Princess Aiko arrived in Amsterdam on Thursday for a two-week sojourn aimed at helping the crown princess recover from her stress-induced illness.................During their Aug. 17-31 trip to Holland, the crown prince and family will meet with Queen Beatrix and other members of the Dutch royal family. They may also meet with Crown Princess Masako's parents.
.......................The royal family's 11-member entourage consists of nine officials of the crown prince's household, such as Chief Chamberlain Takashi Suetsuna, and two private citizens -- Masako's chief doctor Ono and a hairdresser.
The visit is mostly funded by the private expenses of the crown prince's household....................
