But shouldn't the video be about Naruhito? Like showing him playing sports or something?

The prince still loves his wife
By the look of press conference of the prince's birthday, I think the prince abides by the commitment that he proposes, does his strength to protect his wife princess Masako.

Naruhito pleads for patience over Masako's recovery

Japan's future emperor has called on the people of his country to be patient with Crown Princess Masako. Speaking just a few days ahead of his 47th birthday, Crown Prince Naruhito said his wife was slowly recovering from the emotional problems she has been suffering for the past three years.
"Masako is making as much effort as possible, and slowly her condition is improving," said the prince. "But she still tires, and the doctors say how much she can do still must be judged on a case-by-case basis. I would like to ask the Japanese people to understand the situation and watch over us from a long-term perspective."

Article from HELLO about the visit
Creative Japanese school kids not only got to show off their hard work to their mums and dads this week, but to Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako at Tokyo's annual Schoolchildren's Invention Exhibition.

Mother-of-one Masako, who has been struggling with a stress-related condition, looked on with particular interest as pupil Ryoma Noda showed off his accessory for a 'shogi' chess set. The royal couple were also impressed by an electric-powered wheelchair, which won it's young designer the Imperial Prize...........
