Congratulations to Princess Aiko and her lovely parents. She will enter elementary school and I just can't wait to see it. BTW, I wonder if one day she'll study abroad just like her parents did.

Schooling a challenge for Princess Masako and Aiko › Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion

Princess Aiko is going to start primary school in April. But her attendance at Gakushuin Primary School in Shinjuku Ward is causing concern among mothers of her future classmates. In addition, it looks like Aiko’s mother, Crown Princess Masako, will suffer from new stress stemming from her daughter’s schooling.
Established in 1877 for the imperial and noble families, Gakushuin, which is currently a private school open to anyone, is now completing the final preparations to accept the 6-year-old princess, such as security and selection of pupils as her friends...............

Honestly, it's articles like this one that really make my blood boil. If Masako and Aiko acted like a regular mother/daughter, they would be scorned for not being royal enough. But when they act royal, they are scorned for causing problems. Really a Catch-22 situation.

Does anyone know whether there were similar arrangements made when the other Imperial children entered this school? It seems over the top to me even if Japanese Royalty is more conservative than the European ones.....but then of course, I'm not royalty .

Yeah, I'm not sure what the big deal is. (It's not like she's the heir) And even if she is the heir, it's kind of silly.

This was the same arrangement that was made when Naruhito was in school.

Yes, but there is a difference. Naruhito, for one, is the designated heir to the throne since birth, so this type of treatment is to be expected.

Aiko, on the other hand, isn't the designated heir to throne at the moment, as her father is. So this type of treatment might be a bit unsual for her and the situation. This type of treatment would not be unusual if things were changed that Aiko could succed her father.

I wonder who is insisting on Aiko getting this treatment. Is it the IHA or are her parents assisting that she get treated like the future heir? Because if it's the parents, Japan, Aiko, and Hisahito could be in for a very long couple of decades.

All the royal children have gone to this school, so presumably they're aware of the security needs involved. I'm not clear from reading that article whether anything special is actually being done for Princess Aiko that wasn't done for previous royal children or if readers are just being invited to assume that extra-special disruptions are being imposed on other people because of her.
