Japan’s Princess Mako is getting married. Japanese media said the 25-year-old is rumored to be marrying her 25-year-old former classmate.
Japan’s NHK broke the story yesterday, and supposed future husband Kei Komuro spoke to media today. Komuro bowed, but didn’t offer much else.
As The Telegraph reports, Princess Mako would have to give up her title to marry Komuro—a commoner. Japan’s royal family is already shrinking. Procedures are being implemented for Emperor Akihito to abdicate, and there are few left to take his place.
