After ending all the speculation, Japan’s Princess Mako of Akishino is finally going to tie the knot with her commoner fiance Kei Komuro on October 26, said Imperial Household Agency.
According to a BBC report, the princess’s fiance Kamuro is a common house boy. They first met in 2012 while studying at Tokyo International Christian University. The two were classmates. “Princess Mako will relinquish her royal status to marry her fiance,” BBC said.
Earlier, their engagement was completed in 2017. It was revealed that they were planning to get married in 2018, a year after Princess Mako announced her engagement. However, various complications are created, as a result, the marriage between the two went backward.
Two years later, Japan’s Crown Prince Fumihito, Prince Akishino finally accepted the wishes of the duo.
It was learned that Princess Mako will leave the palace after her marriage and will move to the United States with her husband Kei Komuro. Komuro worked as a lawyer there.
As a rule, marrying someone from an ordinary family outside the Japanese dynasty would “deprive” the prince or princess of royal status and deprive her of everything in the palace, said Imperial Household Agency
Even after falling in love with a classmate, it was difficult for Princess Mako to decide to get married, however, she is ready to leave the lavish lifestyle of Royal Palace and marry the son of an ordinary family.
