Royal Babies
 
They inhale their first breath to a resounding twenty-one gun salute. Within a few days, their tiny faces appear in every magazine and newspaper. Their christenings are grand occasions. Stamps, coins and postcards are issued to commemorate these events. Yet they sleep, unaware of the pomp and splendour of the occasion.


*If you have information or pictures of royal births that you wish to share with us, please feel free to PM an administrator or supermoderator.

Other information of note:


At Birth
Shortly after her birth, court messengers placed a sword and purple silk robes by her pillow. The sacred Samurai sword, specially made by master blacksmiths and set in a crimson case, is symbolic proof that the child is a direct descendant of the royal dynasty. It represents the sword which legend has it was given to the founder of the imperial family by the Sun Goddess Amaterasu. Since the newborn is a girl she was also presented with a traditional "hakama", a pleated skirt.

At Seven Days
Imperial tradition has it that the current emperor name the children of his eldest son and heir. Emperor Akihito chose Aiko’s name for it’s meaning, “Child of Love.” Her title, Princess Toshi means “She who respects others.” Both names were written on traditional Japanese paper by Emperor Akihito himself and placed on Aiko’s pillow.

In a traditional ceremony, a royal attendant poured water over the baby princess in a cedar tub, as scholars in ancient court dress plucked at strings of wooden bows and a court-appointed official read passages from the ancient Nihon Shoki. The Nihon Shoki, which was completed in 720 AD, is the oldest official history of Japan.

At Three Months
Aiko took part in an ancient rite to give her a healthy life called Omiyamairi. Wearing garments given to her at her birth by her grandparents, Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, she was presented to three shrines in the Imperial Palace grounds. There Aiko was held by a lady-in-waiting while her parents waited separately until the ritual was over. After the shrine visit, Aiko was formally presented to her grandparents as an official member of the imperial family. This ceremony included a ritual in which the Emperor and Aiko pretended to drink rice wine from a single cup.

On January 9, 2003, Prince Hridayendra of Nepal (Nava Yubaraj Hridayendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev) made his first public appearance during a Hindu ritual in which he was fed solid food for the first time by his parents at the Narayanhiti Royal Palace in Kathmandu. The prince, son of Crown Prince Paras and Crown Princess Himani, was born almost six months ago and Hindu tradition in Nepal requires that babies will be fed rice in a ceremony (Annaprasan) days before they reach their sixth month. Following the ceremony he was taken around the city in a horse-drawn carriage on his first trip outside the royal palace, visiting holy sites in the old town. Prime Minister Lokendra Bahadur Chand officiated as the "guardian" carrying the baby royal to the Maru Ganesh and other temples near Hanuman Dhoka. Thousands of people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the little prince. Later, Queen Mother Ratna gave a reception for select invitees at the Narayanhity Royal palace, that was also attended by King Gyanendra and Queen Komal and the parents of the baby, as well as other members of the royal family.
