Japan princess to Wednesday commoner, forcing her to quit royal family

Princess Mako the elder daughter of Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko will forsake her royalty to marry fiancé Kei Komuro a commoner she met at International Christian University in Tokyo

Over time the princess learnt that he is a 'sincere, strong-minded, hard worker'.

Princess Mako said she had been preparing for the change of her rank since she was little. "She shines brightly with her deep affection and passionate beliefs". However, for many, this isn't good news, as the Princess is said to marry a commoner. With his closed fists on his knees as he sat, Komuro gave away his nervousness.

"I would like to refrain from saying here what we call each other (in private)", she said bashfully. The princess - who is expected to marry her fiancé, law clerk Kei Komuro, in 2018- met Komuro at Tokyo's International Christian University and the two have been dating for five years. The two began dating before Princess Mako went overseas to study.

The couple frequently went on dates to places like Yokohama's Minato Mirai district, and like other young couples, mainly traveled by train.

This means Princess Mako, the daughter of Fumihito, Prince Akishino, and Kiko, Princess Akishino, will have to relinquish her royal status and be registered as an ordinary citizen following her marriage to Komuro.

However, the legislation only applies to Akihito and does not mention what happens to women in the imperial family after they are married. The words came during a walk after having dinner in Tokyo in December 2013. Over time, she said she learned he is "a honest, strong-minded, hard worker, and he has a big heart", Mako said. The princess attended the University of Edinburgh, while Komuro, 25, attended the University of California. His favorite phrase is "Let it be".

Komuro was dubbed as the "Prince of the Sea" in 2010 while serving as a tourism promoter for the city of Fujisawa. "I'm sincerely facing my role".

The couple had a long-distance relationship while studying overseas - Mako in Britain and Komuro in the USA - for one year. The 82-year-old actress told reporters "I had no film career really to speak of" before playing the monarch in the 1997 drama Mrs. Brown, which gained Dench the first of her seven Academy Awards nominations. He is also very kind-hearted says, Mako.
