50 Golden Years

On this day (April 10th, in Japan) a young prince did marry a common-born lady, and for 50 years they have been wed. The "Tennis Court Romance" may well have been the first marriage-for-love in the history of the Imperial Household.

Apparently that was a good choice, for they speak of being most happy together.

Congratulations, Heika, Michiko-sama, may good health and happiness accompany you both always.
