Japan’s Princess Mako weds commoner and loses royal status




Japanese Princess Mako’s long wait to marry ends at last

Japan’s Princess Mako, the emperor’s niece, was married on Tuesday after years of criticism over her fiance that led to their marriage being postponed for three years and resulted in her being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Mako, 30, lost her royal status after her marriage to commoner Kei Komuro, also 30, was formalised with the submission of documents at a local office. The two will live in the United States, where Komuro has a job with a law firm.
