It looks like someone forgot to tell the Crown Prince and the Ambassador that the cool biz decree doesn't extend at the way Switzerland.

Heaven forbid she should get a glimpse of life outside the nirvana of Japan!

Apart from the years she spent living in the US, the holidays she spent in France and time spent studying in England?

I guess you think this woman who speaks 5 languages and studied International Relations, among other things, should step outside of the palace kitchen sometime and see more of the world, right?

Only then would she be worthy to meet with your approval?

Maybe the Crown Prince and company are being shown the "Moor's Head" as "The “Moors guild” was "established in the 14th century in the municipality of Bern", no one needs reminding of the importance of finance for Switzerland, however many have forgotten the revered position of the "Black-a-Moor", not only in Switzerland but throughout all of pre slavery Europe. http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/swiss_news/Is_the_emblem_of_a_Bern_guild_racist.html?cid=38740706
