Who is Princess Mako?

Princess Mako will be losing her title once she marries her commoner fiancé, Kei Komuro. The 25-year old Japanese Princess met Komuro while they were in college at the International Christian University in Tokyo in 2012. The couple hit it off, and now the law firm employee is engaged to royalty.


Her Imperial Highness Princess Mako of Akishino is the eldest daughter of Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko, and is the oldest grandchild of their Imperial Majesties the Emperor and Empress of Japan. She was born in 1991 but she isn’t included in the line of succession for the Chrysanthemum throne. But, Mako has done some charity works and attended formal events.

What Will Princess Mako Lose for Love?

According to the Household laws governing the Japanese Imperial Family, in order to marry a commoner, Princess Mako has to renounce her title as a princess and “Her Imperial Highness” style. If she wishes to marry the love of her life, the oldest grandchild of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko must give up her title.


Apparently, Mako will be the second in her family to make the decision to renounce their titles to marry the people they love who are commoners. In 2005, Princess Sayako, Mako’s aunt and the only daughter of Emperor Akihito, was the first to leave and be stripped off her royal title.



Mako will officially leave the Japanese Imperial Family and lose her title and style when she marries Komuro. After their nuptials, which is set for next year, Mako will be styled as “Mrs. Mako Komuro.”


How often do you hear of royalty and celebrities giving up their titles and careers for love? And like Princess Mako, what did they lose for love?
