A Japanese Princess is celebrating finishing a Masters degree at the University of Leicester.
Princess Mako of Akishinois is a member of the Japanese Imperial Family and the granddaughter of Japan's reigning Emperor.
The Princess began studying towards an MA in Art Museum and Gallery Studies at the university last September, living with other students in the University's halls of residence and undertaking placements at Coventry Museums.
Her dissertation was a study on a series of glass models called Blaschka.
Her tutors say that she was just like any other student - and that her studies provided an escape from her royal duties.
She is now returning to Japan to await her final results before graduation in January 2016.
