On Sunday, The Imperial Household Agency announced that Princess Mako, the eldest grandchild of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko got engaged to Kei Komuro, her former classmate. It is planned to hold the wedding of the couple after the first half of the next year. At the press conference held by the couple both aged 25 in Akasaka district of Tokyo, they stated that their relationship began 5 years ago at the university. In Japan where women can not accede to the throne, Princess Mako will lose the title of Princess since she will get married to a person from the public.

  1. How they look at each other - sooo cute! I think Mako made a good choice. I hope she will be happy and free! (Free compared to her life at court.)

  2. More lovely royal news. Congratulations to the couple.

    I was reading something about how the Japanese Imperial Family is getting smaller as there is only one Prince in the young generation - every time a Princess marries and becomes a commoner they lose another person to perform duties. Apparently, Mako is quite high profile and has a few patronages so losing her will definitely be felt. But, I'm sure her lifestyle be much more free and relaxed.

  3. While tradition can be lovely, sometimes it pays to get with the times or are the Japanese Royal Family going to wait until there are no male heirs before women are seen as equal?
