The Return of the Princess?

The ‘Princess’, alias Rigzin Wangmo, the 10th Panchen Lama’s daughter has returned to Tibet.
Is it a move from the Communist Party to ‘promote’ the memory of her father?
In June 2013, I mentioned her earlier visit to Lhasa.
Five years later, as she arrived at the Jokhang Cathedral, she encountered a huge crowd again; probably much larger than the previous time.
Rigzin Wangmo, accompanied by her mother, received a warm welcome from thousands of Tibetans assembled to have a ‘darshan’ of the Lama’s daughter.
The Tibet Post International (TPI) quoting some sources inside Tibet, wrote: “the 10th Panchen Lama Rinpoche’s wife and daughter on June 20, 2013 secretly visited the Jokhang temple in Lhasa, the heart of Tibet, a crowd of thousands of Tibetan people immediately gathered to give them a warm welcome and support.”
Not so secretly, if thousands got to know about her visit.
A source in Switzerland told TPI: “Huge gathering of crows paid great attention to their pilgrim(age) to the two holy sites – Jokhang Temple and Ramoche Temple in the capital. Tens of thousands turned out en masse to pay a warm welcome and respects to Rigzin Wangmo, the daughter of His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama.”[Source]
