Crown prince confers autumn decorations on behalf of emperor - The Mainichi Daily News
Crown Prince Naruhito on Monday conferred annual autumn decorations on six award recipients on behalf of Emperor Akihito, who was hospitalized on Sunday to receive treatment for bronchitis. During the award ceremony at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, the crown prince conveyed a message from the emperor who wanted to "extend my deep gratitude to those who have worked hard" at their duties for many years and dedicated themselves to the nation and society.

I suppose he is resigned to having to make appearances on his own most of the time.

Perhaps, as Aiko grows older, she'll be able to accompany him occasionally.

It includes part of the duties, the other part is performed by shinto priests from the Imperial family personal shrine. The Crown Prince has not been inaugurated as a monarch to perform some of the rituals yet.

HIH the Crown Prince Naruhito visits HM the Emperor at the hospital in the evening on November 18th, 2011.

Oh, you have no idea, how exciting it was! And so unexpected.
There was someone else (The Crown Prince's aide, I suppose) in the auto. That man was hiding himself and letting us to see the Kotaishi (the heir). It was awesome!

There's really "something in the air" when there's a royal visit. It's hard to explain, but it's very exciting stuff.

Japan looks to future with earnest crown prince | Reuters
[...]
Naruhito's prominence while his 77-year-old father recovers from what court officials say is a mild case of pneumonia has given Japan a fresh look at the scholarly, unassuming man who likes animals and watching sumo wrestling with his 9-year-old daughter, Aiko.
Whereas Emperor Akihito had a relatively clear role to play when he ascended the Chrysanthemum throne, trying to heal the wounds of a war waged across Asia in the name of his father, Emperor Hirohito, Naruhito, 51, may find it harder to forge a path of his own.
And Naruhito may also have to carve out a role largely on his own.

Crown Prince cancels France visit

Quote:
Crown Prince Naruhito has canceled a plan to visit France this month for the World Water Forum to be held in Marseille, the Imperial Household Agency said Monday.

The Crown Prince will concentrate on covering Emperor Akihito's affairs of state [...]

A researcher on water transportation systems and water-related issues, the Crown Prince planned to give a speech on water-related disasters in connection with last March's earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan [...]
The Japan Times

I am sure that the crown prince is very sorry that he will be unable to attend the World Water Forum. He has said oftentimes that he has water issues very much at heart, and I am sure that he has been looking forward especially to maybe help other countries by sharing the horrible experience made by his nation. But of course, at present it is most important for Prince Naruhito to take over for his father, so the emperor will get the chance to rest and know that his duties are being taken good care of.

I'm sure other members of the family could fill in for the Emperor, as far as fulfilling his duties.

I think it is more likely fears for his father's health that keep the Crown Prince from leaving his country at this time.
