Is there the feeling that this illness is somehow Masako's fault? That she is to blame for being ill?

As an outsider, it seems to me that if Naruhito can cope with and love his ill wife, so surely should the nation.

Not so much as Masako sama's illness is her fault- I mean anyone with any brain can see that.

But things being said about her in Japanese newspaper, magazine, and on TV are often not very kind.

I like Crown Prince. He's a very caring sort of a person with CP Misako as well as with others around him. I just wish him happiness, with Masako sama beside him.

Yes. I share your opinion entirely. Princess Masako is creating her illness with her own mind. I don't think she is aware of it - our mind is very strong, and sometimes one doesn't realize how powerful it can become. Our minds could distroy us , literally - but this is my perception. Is hard for her to asume her Royal duties, I think...

However, smetimes, newspapers and magazines are too hard on her, for they doesn't realize that the Princess needs to be helped in the acceptation of her tasks.

As for Prince Naruhito, I think he loves her wife and wants to keep her . I don't see any probability of a divorce here, and that's allright.

P.D: As for the ones who ask for give "freedom" to Masako, I think they didn't realize she is no more a commoner as she was before. Now she has Royal duties and these duties are not compatible with a total personal freedom. I think that even us, we commoners, have no total freedom and that's all right. If we have children, a job, a beloved one, in fact, some degree of personal duties (and all persons have at least one or two of all these quoted above), we are not totally free. And that's great...We can't do anything we wants to; society should become crazy and without any rule if we will. Job cut somewhat your freedom; love too...You could imagine to live without a job ...But how sad is to live without a love.

Vanesa.

Indeed, especially if it's a event like the last one, where he looks so
relaxed and more than a tourist or normal visitor enjoying a site than
like an official and perfectly dressed prince in his fixed role...

You are quite right. My personal observation is that Crown Prince Naruhito enjoys less official engagements more than his brother.

Indeed, considering the fact that the protocol of an official event gives
you a kind of security, that you know what to do and what's expected,
that's also easy to imagine..

Crown Prince Naruhito paid homage at Meiji Shrine in Tokyo on November 8,
2010, in commemoration of the 90th anniversary of its foundation. Enshrining
Emperor Meiji (1852-1912) and his wife, the dowager Shoken, it was constructed
on November 1, 1920.
