It's not as simple as that. Most of the posts about this are very one-sided, imo, with full sympathy towards this family and criticism of both the "bullying" IHA and the unfeeling response of a...

Little was known about her, prior to her marriage.
Perhaps she did suffer from depression earlier, and it either went undiagnosed or simply wasn't publicized.
We have no way of knowing.

I'm not so sure the courtiers are to blame; it's possible Masako's mental issues are deep-rooted and have little to do with her marriage.
Perhaps she would have suffered from depression no matter...

Well, perhaps, but you'd think she would be over it by now! That was over a decade ago.

I really do not see why she can't accompany her husband occasionally.
There's nothing stressful about going...

Unless she is actually bedridden (which we know she's not), I don't see how it could be a health issue! If it is due to emotional stress, a change of venue is often helpful in these cases.

It seems he is always going off on his own!
Why does Masako never accompany him to any of these things?
Isn't she allowed to, or doesn't she want to?

I understand your reasoning, and agree in part.
However, in that case I think the IHA, along with the Imperial Family, would be better served by being more upfront about Masako's health problems.

No, I am not, as you are no doubt well-aware and are making a statement to suggest that I have no understanding of the lengths the IHA will go.

Since the chief criticism of Masako is that she won't attend any public engagements, I don't think there's a question of it's not being allowed.

That's precisely what the IHA, the press, and...

I wonder how Masako will manage, once she becomes Empress?
Will she even become Empress if she can't perform any official duties?

I wish I knew how the Emperor feels about it.
Does he wish his duties reduced?

(I'd also like to know how he feels about the succession issues, but I suppose he won't come right out and say).

How is this healthy for the princess?
Masako has to be, if not a disruptive influence, at least a distraction for the other children.

If the situation hasn't been resolved for such a...

What will happen if Naruhito and Masako accept the invitation, the Cabinet approves, and then she cancels at the last minute?

Will the Cabinet take any action? Or will they just have to accept it?

No doubt, she is criticized constantly these days.
Still, it's a mystery as to what illness she really has; it's been said it's adjustment disorder, but that doesn't continue for years and years!

At one time, I thought perhaps she might be agoraphobic. But she often goes places for private events, so that can't be it!

What will her own people think, if she is photographed smiling at the wedding in London, and then when she is back home, she again is too sick to make appearances?

Yes, I agree.
But I have to say that perhaps she is better off.
If she was heir to the throne, her life would be quite constrained; as it is, she'll have more personal freedom.
