Princess Mako: – The princess’ unusual love choice

Dissatisfaction was created in Japan, when Princess Mako (29) in 2017 announced that she was going marry a man named Kei Komuro, which she met when she was studying abroad.

The dissatisfaction came from the fact that the princess’ chosen one was a completely “ordinary” man. Due to Japanese law and royal protocol, this will mean that the princess will have to relinquish her imperial status and leave the family.

The empire in Japan is already threatened as more and more family members leave the family. In 2019 also chose Japan’s then Emperor Akihito (87) to abdicate – as the first emperor in 200 years.

However, that does not stop Princess Mako, who apparently has big plans to complete the wedding within the next couple of years.

Gives up

The Japanese broadcasting company NHK is said to have stated that the new wedding date will be announced in October, according to CNN.

Ahead of the announcement, it has also become known that Princess Mako is now taking another step towards liberating herself from the imperial family. It is expected that she will now waive a one-time payment worth one million dollars, now that she is stepping down from her role in the empire.

Outgoing members are legally entitled to receive such a one-time payment, according to CNN.

The Japanese government will be willing to agree to the princess waiving the payment, which is estimated to be worth up to 150 million yen. This corresponds to around 11.5 million Norwegian kroner.

Princess Mako and her fiancé were actually getting married in 2019, but due to “poor preparation”, they decided to postpone indefinitely. At the same time as the postponement became known, there was also one ongoing «scandal», which surrounded the princess’ fiancée and his mother.

The mother is said to have been in debt, and thus the princess’s fiancé and his family were accused of not being in good enough financial condition to support Mako when she leaves her family.

It was also speculated that the couple had broken off their engagement, when Fordham University in New York received a stern message from Japan’s Imperial Household Agency, which aims to preserve traditions and protocols in the family, not to mention Komuro as the princess’ fiancé.

Komuro was a student at the school at the time.

Princess Mako and Kei Komuro got engaged in 2013, but the engagement did not become known until four years later. Now it is expected that a wedding will finally take place in the near future – cost what it must cost.
