The Imperial Household Agency said Tuesday that Princess Aiko, the daughter of Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako, and granddaughter of the emperor and empress, was hospitalized Tuesday.
Aiko, 9, was admitted to the University of Tokyo Hospital, after suffering from a fever and persistent cough, the IHA said in a statement.
The princess attends Gakushuin Primary School and only recently started going back to school by herself after 18 months. She stayed away from school for some time after being frightened by rowdy behavior by boys in her class last year. When she resumed attendance, she had to be accompanied to school by her mother.© Japan Today
