Because Japanese Princess Mako married a middle-class man, she left the royal family. This play could have been repeated with her younger sister Kako.
In October 2021, Princess Mako, the niece of Emperor Naruhito of Japan, and her partner Kei Komuro finally tied the knot after a four-year engagement. For Mako, this was a long-awaited move, and not just in the romantic sense. Because by marrying a common man she is no longer a princess, but a private person who can act independently according to the current legal status in her country. Nevertheless, the love caused a scandal among the Japan Royals. And it could happen again…
Princess Kako is called “Mr. A”. love
Mako’s younger sister Princess Kako is also said to be in love with a middle-class man. This rumor is now making waves on the earth of the rising sun. The 27-year-old briefly studied in the UK before completing his arts studies at the International Christian University in Tokyo. At the University of Leeds, she is said to be dating a man who was simply referred to as “Mr A” in media reports. Called her, met and fell in love with her.
Less is known about “Mr. A”. Like Kako, he is said to have studied in Leeds, but later graduated from Tokyo Agricultural University. Thus A has a university degree, but no title of nobility.
Although it is almost common in European royalty for royals and commoners to enter relationships, it is still taboo in Japan. The royal family follows strict rules. If a family member falls in love with a normal person, you lose your title and prestige as a royal.
