posted on a blog was the comment that a certain
TV station in Orlando, Florida does not

— an ex-member of Royal family fluent in sign language

Princess Mako, a member of the Japanese royal family,
has been fluent in Japanese Sign Language. Soon

forced to step down from the Royal Family. This may
mean we no longer have any royal family members
anywhere in the world fluent in sign language.
