As it became known today, Princess Mako, the granddaughter of the current emperor of Japan - Akihito - made an official statement. She gave up the right to be considered a princess in order to get the opportunity to marry her beloved, a man by no means royal blood. 25-year-old Mako intends to be legally married with her chosen one - her age-old Kei Komuro, who serves only as a clerk in a law office.

Kei and Mako's romance began 5 years ago, and they met while both were studying at Christian University. As it has now become known, they secretly got engaged back in 2013, but their engagement was strictly classified. According to available information, Mako has already officially introduced the groom to her father, Prince Akishino, second in line to the Japanese throne. As the princess commented, Kei is the man with whom she wants to share her life.

It is curious that Mako has become the eighth member of the royal family since the end of World War II, who refused to lose the title of his own free will - for the sake of marriages with "mere mortals". The last to give up the title before the princess was her aunt Sayako, the daughter of the now reigning emperor. By the way, in the near foreseeable future, the 83-year-old emperor, by agreement with the parliament, is going to abdicate. Uncle Mako, her father's brother, Prince Narahito, will reign on the throne to replace him. This will be the first time a Japanese monarch has abdicated in the past two hundred years.
