Japanese princess Mako reportedly wants to get married soon

Japan’s Princess Mako has been engaged for years. Now the wait for her marital happiness will soon come to an end. Court reporters want to know that the marriage should take place in 2021.

Tokyo – The years of waiting for her marital happiness will soon come to an end for the Japanese princess Mako, according to media reports.

As several Japanese media reported on Wednesday, citing informed circles, the wedding of the 29-year-old with her fiancé Kei Komuro of the same age should take place before the end of this year – but without the traditional wedding ceremonies that are usual at the imperial court. The reason for this is financial disputes in the Komuro family, which is why the strictly conservative House Court Office wants to forego the usual rituals.

Mako has been engaged to her college friend for four years. But a planned wedding in 2018 was suddenly canceled. The reason was an unresolved financial issue in the Komuro family. In April of this year, he made a statement and spoke of misunderstandings regarding his mother’s financial problems. Previously, the father of his great love, Crown Prince Akishino, had given his blessing in November. “I agree that you can marry,” Akishino said before his 55th birthday. “I believe that as a parent I should respect their intentions if marriage is what they really want.”

And that is the case. According to the Japanese tabloids, it is “pure love” between the two. Kei Komuro met Mako years ago through a friend at the International Christian University (ICU), both of whom were attending at the time. The princess was the first member of the imperial family to study there. At the age of 18, Komuro, with the enchanting title of “Prince of the Sea”, was tourism ambassador for the nearby Tokyo city of Fujisawa.

He learned the violin, can cook and ski. Komuro’s father died when he was a child. Komuro attended an international private school before going to ICU. As a student he worked in a French restaurant and gave English lessons. Princess Mako said when she got engaged in 2017 that she was attracted to his “smile that shines like the sun” right at the beginning of their relationship. And Komuro also chose flowery words for the princess: she accompanies him mindfully and “calmly as the moon”.

But when her marriage plans were abruptly canceled, Komuro went to the United States to study law there. He graduated there in May of this year and soon passed the bar exam in New York. By marrying a commoner like him, Japan’s Princess Mako becomes a private person under current law. Imperial law demands that of women.

The daughter of Crown Prince Akishino, the younger brother of Emperor Naruhito (61), and his wife Kiko will likely forego the usual financial dowry when they leave the imperial family, the media reported on Wednesday. Accordingly, the young couple should live in the USA after the planned marriage. dpa
