"There's still time to change your mind Princess"

Maybe he's the one who should be reconsidering.

Classy statement.

I'm not hearing a denial in your response Stranger. In my opinion LandofExcuses didn't say anything we were not already thinking; that includes the staff of JapanToday.

So, this is just the pre-engagement promise of a promise announcement?

sensei257, paulinusa,

Why should either one one of them need to be reconsidering? They have dated for a few years, obviously know what they are getting into and are capable of making up their own minds. They certainly don't need a bunch of rude strangers on the internet telling them what to do.

"Hmm. Delaying the announcement due to inclement weather. I think not."

You're right! It's not due to inclement weather, it's out of respect and concern for the many dead, the many still missing, the many still awaiting rescue, the many who have lost their homes, businesses, farms, the many working hard to rescue people or find bodies, install temporary or repair infrastructure, the many helping victims clean their homes, the many caring for survivors in evacuation centers, etc.

I think everyone's got the message already. Why bother announcing that something is going to be announced? It's like having a meeting to discuss about having a meeting.

"I think everyone's got the message already. Why bother announcing that something is going to be announced? It's like having a meeting to discuss about having a meeting."

This is about a formal, official announcement/press conference. If it was not announced beforehand the members of the media would not know when and where to go and it would just be the two of them talking to the IHA staff.

Also the members of the Japanese public who are interested in the Royal family want to know when it will be.

Like Educator wrote, we like to know when it will be.  Unlike When Emperor was marrying,,, Gov't is blessing.
