Emperor to reconnect with River Thames....

He should be careful, the amount of raw, untreated sewage dumped in the countries rivers these days is a national disgrace.

I hope not! And I guess they found a relatively clean stretch for him to get his photo taken.

Don’t worry Mr Kipling there’s no heavy rains at the moment so it’ll be relatively clean in all the beauty spots.

I’d like to hear more about his pub crawls and his pint of choice.

seeing the kindness of strangers who rushed to help when he dropped his purse, scattering coins across a shop floor

I’d be a little wary about strangers rushing over after I’d just dropped my purse. Then again, I’ve been to Toxteth more than I’ve been to Oxford.

Sounds like a bright and happy moment in his life before the gloom of the Imperial Household closed in around him. Hope he enjoys his time in the UK. Perhaps he can go for a quiet pint, if he can slip his minders and handlers!

I sincerely hope that Emperor Naruhito, Empress Masako, after all the formal ceremony, have some personal time to recapture, when both perhaps were free of the duty, they both, without filching must adhere to until death.

The salmon that regularly migrate and spawn there, including the stretch through central London, don't seem to mind.
