Happy Birthday Your Imperial Highness

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketPrincess Akishino (popularly known as Princess Kiko) is only the second commoner to marry into the Japanese Royal Family - the first being her mother-in-law the current Empress - which she did in June 1990. Princess Kiko is seen here holding her newborn son, Prince Hisahito - her third child (after Princesses Mako and Kako) and first son by Prince Akishino.

Hisahito, who turned 4 on September 6th, may one day become Emperor.

Far from solving a constitutional crisis over whether or not his older cousin Aiko could one day be Empress regnant, his birth seems to have bogged down the process required to clarify the issue.
