Yes, me too. I think that's the only royal house that works this way but that's an interesting organization they have there.

Princess Laurentien looks really great in this elegant red dress. I usually don't like her outfits but this time she looks very well.

Thanks for the update!
The Dutch poultry museum ... It is nice to know that there is a whole museum dedicated to what seems be usual food such as chickens.

Kiko looks so cute in her traditional Japanese Kimono but those shoes look so uncomfortable and difficult to walk in. It looks like the trip was a success. Nice to see Constantijn and Laurentien too.

Prince Hisahito is so adorable! He looks curious and serious when he patted and held the animals.

Joining the above opinions, I have to say that Prince Hisahito is an adorable little boy. It is great to see Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko participating in various activities with their son.

Thanks for sharing the video!
It is nice to see Prince Akishino and his family. Princess Mako and Princess Kako are all grown-up. Princess Kiko looked impeccable. At the same time, I could not help noticing that Prince Hisahito is the main focus of the video.

Japan's Prince Akishino (2nd L), his wife Princess Kiko (R) and their children Princess Mako (L), Princess Kako (C) and Prince Hisahito stroll through the Akasaka Imperial Precincts in Tokyo November 8, 2009 in this photo released by the Imperial Household Agency of Japan. A smaller imperial family would be less of a burden on Japan's finances, said the prince who stands second in line to the Chrysanthemum Throne. Akishino's comments, made in a news conference to mark his 44th birthday on November 30, 2009, came as Japan's deeply indebted government struggles to cut back on record budget requests of 95 trillion yen ($1,097 billion) while trying to avert a slide back into recession.

Give royal family say in its role: Akishino

Prince Akishino, ahead of his 44th birthday on Monday, said Imperial Familymembers should be involved in the debate over the ideal future role of Japan's royalty.
"I think it might be necessary to have the process of listening to the opinions of the Crown Prince and other parties concerned," Prince Akishino, second in line to the Chrysanthemum Throne after Crown Prince Naruhito, said at a news conference last Wednesday that was embargoed until Monday.
