Crown Princess Masako is suffering an adjustment disorder, the Imperial Household Agency said Friday.

She has faced stress "caused by her special status as Crown Princess, problems relating to her pregnancy and miscarriage, and the difficulties in drawing a line between the public and private elements of her busy life," the agency told a news conference.

The Princess' doctors have focused mainly on mental therapy and drug treatment, according to Hideki Hayashida, grand master of the Crown Prince's Household. The psychological condition is a reaction to identifiable sources of stress.
