She has a degree in Economics from Harvard and a degree in International Relations from Oxford. She gave up her career as a diplomat when she married the Prince in 1993. She was 29.5 years old when they were married.
It took her nearly 6 years to get pregnant but the first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. She gave birth to Princess Toshi in 2001, more than 8 years after their marriage. Princess Toshi is now 14 years old.
Due to the pressure to produce children and more importantly an heir to the throne, Princess Masako reportedly suffered (or maybe still suffering) an emotional disorder. She has remained out of the public eye since 2002.
