    No. The former empress is recuperating from surgery for early stage breast cancer, carried out in September.

    No, aside from having surgery recently, she and the Emperor Emeritus need to step back from public duties so that Naruhito and Masako can take their rightful place in Japanese society.

    The dear lady is not making public appearances. She will live out her days in seclusion, only coming out into public view to participate in the rituals of court mourning when death befalls the imperial house.

  • Pretty much. She retired from public life in 2014 and has seldom been seen since.

    No, she isn't. Her health hasn't been that good recently.
