Japan's prince Hisahito gets a golden toy
Prince Hisahito of Japan who was born on the 9th of September, has received a solid gold rocking horse in honor of his birth. The 24-carat horse was created especially for the prince by designer Ginza Tanaka. Hisahito is the third child and only son of Prince Akishino, 41, and Princess Kiko, 40, and has sisters Mako, 14, and Kako, 12. His birth dismissed argument over whether female heirs should be allowed to inherit the Chrysanthemum Throne and Hisahito is third in line to the throne.
