  1. Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako wore face masks for the entire memorial service. The mask-less photos are from 2019.
    Good to see Prince Joachim on the mend.
    Congratulations to Arthur Chatto and his team.
    Lovely photos and videos of Princess Anne.

    • The Getty captions for the mask-less photos do confirm that they are from 2019, but how odd that Masako would have worn the very same outfit for the ceremony two years in a row, right down to the pearls, earrings, gloves, and styling of her hair!
