Who said Princess Aiko was authistic? I never thought such a nonsense! I'm finding some morbosity here and there these last times...I remember quite well that there are people who affirmed that Infanta Leonor was deaf and mute, that one of her legs was missing and that her angioma must be somewhat cancerous or so...Oh...And I was forgetting poor Princes Nicolas and Aymeric from Belgium. Since they appears very little in magazins and other medias some speculations began around them, and the last amazing thing I read about them was..that they were Hydrocephalic...Oh, Lord! Pu-leeeeze.

I think that common sense is deserting us, nowadays.

Vanesa.

I know that what I'm going to say is going come back to bite me in the ass when I say it, but I'll say it anyways....I think its possible that some of the more extreme traditionalist members of the IHA would say such a thing about Princess Aiko and to try to get her parents, the Crown Prince and Princess, out of the way for the throne and get Prince and Princess Akishino in first, just because they have a boy. But hey...I'm just saying it might be a possibility....there's still a chance that the sucession law will change for Aiko.

I do not believe it was a romor spread by the IHA. Being traditionalist (like myself, for example! ) is not being mean. Most of us are good people who believes in certain old truths that we think they are eternal (but again you have not to agree with us!). I think that these rumors are spread by morbid people who is too bored of thinks just like they are and begings to speculate about everything.

Infanta Leonor of Spain suffered too much from these kind of rumors (the one who makes me laugh the more was the one of her little leg missing! That was hilarious and I'm still surprised that some people would believe it. ), as well as princes Nicolas and Aymeric of Belgium, from people who said they were nor normal and "hydrocephalic". This is not related to modernism or tradition, but to the sick state of spirit in which a lot of people is living nowadays. Morbid things are seeing as interesting and sometimes the people tends to imagine awful diseases for everybody that is not showing before cameras every minute of his/her life...

Good point...but anything can happen right? Who knows who started that rumours.

And Yes there are some traditions are important to keep alive, but don't you think some traditions need to be broken and new ones to replace them? I mean in general terms, not in the case of the Imperial family's traditions or others ones concerning?

I think when a tradition is kept/celebrated in a way that no longer has meaning, then it is time to re-evaluate. I don't think you necessarily get rid of the tradition, although certainly that may be possible -- but perhaps there is a new way to celebrate an old tradition and still maintain the spiritual essence of what the tradition was about.

Good point...all that I hope at this point is that, those people who keep traditions alive, is that take a look at the traditions they are keeping are really worth keeping alive in a world where things are changing. Perhaps some parts of particular traditions need a few minor changes to suit the day and age.

There's a group of people who participate in a Japanese anti-Masako discussion or chat board, and they paid a visit to one of the other English-speaking royalty forums a few months ago and posted the most appalling venom. Aiko being autistic, Masako having Aspergers, and Naruhito being a disgrace to the imperial house were the least of it. These people seem to be part of the conservative movement who want to see the crown prince and his family shunted aside by whatever means necessary (the consensus among them seemed to be for Masako to kill herself and Aiko and for Naruhito to give up his royal status and leave the country or, if he couldn't do that, then to marry a good Japanese girl and father a few sons). The thread was locked and then deleted once the moderators realised what was happening, but it did give an interesting insight into some of the feelings about Masako on the part of some Japanese.

Unhappy

How very appalling and sad that people would disperse such falsehoods. Aiko is a beautiful healthy child and plainly is adored by her parents. I really feel for Masako haveing to be confronted with this kind of trash.

I hope such nonsense would not be a pressure on Masako.

Wow, that much hate toward such an innocent child? The girl does not even know how her birth has brought so many enemies toward her parents. I wonder what would be her feelings toward her family and country be like as she grows up and start reading about all this. Her parents have suffered so much to protect her I don't find any paralell with the other royals we discuss in here. Well, Russia's Grand Duchess Maria and her son come a bit close in the family drama issues. But what happens in Japan is like out of a court plot from another century. And yet, it's happening today in the most technologically advanced country in the planet.

I was beginning to miss the news about this little sweet Princess. I'm happy to see her again. And Princess Masako looks every day more wonderful. She seems to be totally recovered of her stress episode. At least, I hope so!

Oh, by the way: thank you Fanletizia and Wlee for posting these wonderful links.

Vanesa.

They look very relax and enjoy the picnic. Aiko is very cute (as always) and Masako looks happy. Glad to see them again.

It is good to see Masako getting out more. Hopefully she is recovering and getting well. I also really like her with her hair a little longer.

Do many school children in Japan where hats like Aiko's?

Yes it's generally children at kindergarten, although some older children can be seen wearing them too. They also tend to be bright yellow or white, makes the children easy to spot when they go on field trips.
