I found the Prince's comments very interesting. He was pretty circumspect in some regards but I think he also has made it very clear that he totally loves Masako and that he's sticking by her no matter what. They make a beautiful familly. Love the little pink coat on Aiko in the above photo.

Prince Willem-Alexander visits Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako

Willem-Alexander visits 'Imperial Prison'

By Hans Jacobs


TOKYO - The Prince of Orange visited Japan for a conference on water affairs. The Prince also paid a short visit to the Emperor and the Empress and went to his colleagues Crown Prince Naruhito and his spouse Princess Masako.

The difference in life circumstances between the Japanese and the Netherlands crown princely couples could not be bigger. Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima can go and stay where they want. To walk, to ride, go for a shop, to ski, it does not matter. This is only a dream for Crown Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako, whose lives are ruled by the ever omnipresent Kunaicho, the Imperial Household Agency....

Crown Prince Naruhito, left, and Crown Princess Masako wave at well-wishers upon their arrival at Matsumoto Station in Nagano prefecture, or state, central Japan, Friday, June 1, 2007. Naruhito was originally to travel to Nagano by himself but the Imperial Palace Household Agency announced earlier in the week that Masako, who is still recuperating from a form of depression, would join him to attend Saturday's meeting on protection of the nation's greenery. Masako withdrew from virtually all public duties four years ago after being diagnosed.

I wonder if they were to just say 'we're going to the beach' (or wherever), would they be physically restrained by the IHA? What's stopping the RF from just not going along with it?

It's really wonderful to see the CP slowly returning to public duties. I cannot imagine what it must hve been like for her to be held like a virture prisoner simply because she had difficulties having a child and when the person is such a capable, intelligent and modern woman like CP Maskao it must be been a living nightmare. Kudos to her and her strength and courage to fight the illness and live on.

She looks very lovey in her white outfit!

Masako's hair is longer -- I think it suits her quite well.
I think she is better now, primarily because she has had the full support of her husband during this time -- it must mean a lot, given her environment.
