JAPAN'S CROWN PRINCESS LOSES BABY

Shattering hopes for a new heir to the Chrysanthemum Throne, palace officials announced today that Crown Princess Masako had been pregnant but suffered a miscarriage.

No reasons were given for the miscarriage, which will not hurt Masako's future pregnancies, officials said.

Japan has been eagerly awaiting news on Masako's possible pregnancy, ever since the local media earlier this month trumpeted unofficial leaks that she may be expecting.
