Very easy to say when you have taxpayer funded flunkees at your beck and call.

I tend to think that the Imperial Family remains very traditional and only celebrate Kanreki 還暦 for men, not for women.

Life is a precious gift. Happy birthday. Wishing Empress Masako good health and happiness.

Happy birthday! Adjustment disorder is common and can result from a major life change like marriage or losing a job. I understand it can last 6 months or so. I think her situation is different.

Exactly. 23 years sens a bit long for an « adjustement » I think the one suffering from adjustment disorder is the Imperizl Agency

A diamond jubilee generally refers to a public service of some kind, not a simple age. Let's call it a happy birthday, shall we? I'm all for that.

Happy Birthday and all the best for the future!

Even if I have to admit, I'm a little jealous that we don't have such a young, extraordinary woman as an empress in Germany.
