That first photo really highlights how much the Imperial family has shrunk in the last 91 years. For the upcoming enthronement the majority of the bodies in a similar photo would be spouses of Imperial family members, and unmarried daughters of deceased princes. It would be interesting to do a side by side comparison after the enthronement.

I remember hearing that Takako very much had the "It Factor" for the media in her day, and it certainly shines through in those pictures.

And it would seem odd to me if they would be receiving an order after leaving the imperial family; or has that happened in the past?

Agreed! Takako definitely had the "It Factor"

I tweeted the order photo and someone responded that the government stopped giving orders during the war (and probably the post-war recovery period). Maybe Princess Yasuko's recent 20th birthday in 1964 was a good opportunity to give orders to Kazuko and Takako as well.

Prince Nagahisa Kitashirakawa received the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Chrysanthemum posthumously and his wife Princess Sachiko was upgraded to the 1st class, Grand Cordon of the Order of the Precious Crown in May 1945. It makes sense some orders were still awarded. Giving orders to Imperial princesses would be lower priority.
