Now that the pressure to produce an heir is off, Princess Masako should be free to become Japan's most talented and potentially effective ambassador. That would be the smartest and most practical thing to do, but then "smart" and "practical" are not two words one associates with the Imperial Household Agency.

The princess. She can just keep popping children out, because her purpose in the royal household is complete. She can serve society instead of one meaningless family - you know, actually earn the money she gets from tax payers.Oyaji wrote:

People love gossip.
So, now she can live the rest of her life as a baby factory, trying to increase the birthrate of Japan.
