Princess Aiko is so cute, and it's really happy to see Crown Princess Masako has the spirit.

Thanks for the photos of the family. Masako is indeed looking great and Aiko is growing-up fast. For a little girl, she seems to be very serious; but I like very much the serenity that she exudes.

Japan's crown princess to take rare overseas holiday
Japan's Princess Masako will visit the Netherlands next month (August 2006) with her husband and daughter, a rare overseas holiday many see is aimed at helping her recover from mental illness caused by the stress of royal life.
She will be accompanied by her doctor on the Aug 17 to 31 trip, the Imperial Household Agency said on Friday (July 28, 2006)...................

I agree, Aiko is just to cute, and hopefully will turn out into a beauty like her mother or grand mother. BTW does anybody know what Aiko means?

Aiko means "lovechild" in Japanese. The name was chosen by her parents instead of the Emperor.

Aiko is the very image of her dad... IMHO, I doubt if she would look like her mom or the Empress (I assume the grandmother you speak of here is her paternal grandmother, or is it?), but she will grow up to be beautiful anyhow.

I can't wait for Aiko to meet Amalia and Alexia! Hope the 3 little girls get to be friends.

Sometimes, little boys and girls are serious and there is nothing wrong with them. They are just like this. Other children are more smiling. I do not know why.

I think we discussed the same issue about Froilan and Victoria Federika, Infanta Helena the Borbon's children. They seem not only to be serious, but they seems to be pouting, as if they were ready to begin to cry. Princess Aiko is indeed a serious little girl, but at least, she seems not always near to burst into tears...She is adorable!

And yes...I would like she met Princess Catharina-Amalia and Alexia! They could be very good friends, for sure!

Vanesa.

That's a thought. Anyhow, you can see her waving at times to the press even if she almost never smiles at them. Prince Naruhito once said that little Aiko felt bad for all the people (press) standing out in the cold so she waved her stuffed toy's paw at them. But yes, the younger imperial princesses (with the exception of Princess Tsuguko) seem to be quite reserved in public; they seldom smile.
