Japan's Princess Mako is giving up her royal status -- all in the name of love.
The groom-to-be is a prince himself ... of sorts.
The Imperial Household tells CNN plans are underway for the 25-year-old princess, granddaughter of Emperor Akihito, to become engaged to Kei Komuro, also 25, a law firm worker and graduate student who once starred in a tourism campaign as "Prince of the Sea."

The couple met five years ago as students at the International Christian University in Tokyo, Japan's national broadcaster NHK reported.
It was while in university that Komuro played the "Prince of the Sea" in a beach tourism campaign for the city of Fujisawa, south of Tokyo.

This is no exception. In history many such examples were. For example in Britain. Also, I think that being a monarch is not a very good lesson. Modern monarchs have no powers but responsibilities are many. Why waste life on useless ceremony.

I guess she was disappointed with the royal life, after the birth of Prince Hisahito of Akishino. Before that, it was widely speculated that she would one day be named as the empress. After it became clear that she would never became the empress, she gave up the royal privileges.

There are many similar examples that show that love is much more valuable than any statuses and privileges.

In Japan, the royal family has been a figure of the government but not have that much power than it really has a long time ago especially after they lose the World War II.

This is no exception. In history many such examples were. For example in Britain. Also, I think that being a monarch is not a very good lesson. Modern monarchs have no powers but responsibilities are many. Why waste life on useless ceremony.

------------------------

Also it is good to know that the status they have, the previlege they embraced does not let herself be intoxicated with this. A sacrifice like this for her partner really speaks a lot and mostly if not all are giving a positive view in this.

The Japanese royal family may be the most endangered of its kind in the world. There are just four individuals in the line of succession for the throne, and only one of them is less than 50 years old. Perhaps they should seriously consider adopting members from the other royal families (a practice which they abandoned during the allied occupation after the WW2).

I think its high time that someone should his or her title because they want to marry someone who is not of royal bloodline. I really admire the princess for having the courage to do that.

She was very wise. All the privileges she will remain and she will live a normal human life. Remember the last years of her life Princess ? Why repeat its mistakes. I do think that the monarchy is a vestige of the past and very soon they will disappear.

Well the princess probably knows what will make her happy thoughout her life and that's not anything that royalty can give. Happy for her and her soon to husband though. And she most likely would be better off with a title and all the pressure and responsibilities it entails.

It is not a big deal nowadays. Apart from a few nations such as Thailand, Bhutan and Swaziland, the ruling families don't have much power. In Japan also, the royal titles are for namesake only. Anyone can insult the emperor and get away with it (don't try doing the same in Thailand). The princess was fed up with the palace life, and she wanted change. I just hope that this relation will not end in divorce.

Or maybe they would consider disappearing as they're just completely useless people actually costing money to the country.

She just want to live a normal life that's all. It's not always happily ever after for a princess. They just have little or no influence to Japanese, they just carry a nominal title in their country. Yeah. I hope she find the perfect love and not end in divorce indeed. There are also similar love story like this in history, so this is nothing new. I don't know what the reaction of the royal family though. I guess they will not stop the princess from making her own decision, specially about love.

I think she's making a big mistake. Love doesn't last, people drift apart and change over time. I think in 10 years she will be regretting her decision.

Anyways, the guy should be ashamed. He's taking Japan's princess for himself. Someone may not like this idea and decide to samurai sword his ass.

Even if the relationship doesn't survive, she's doing herself a vast favour by abandoning imperialness.

It must be a giant pain up the arse having your every move scrutinised and having to be interested in some granny's flower arranging when all you want to do is get stoned at home and play GTA V.

Real love can live forever. In any case, she did the right thing, because she got rid of this obsessive need for all sorts of unnecessary trips.

Still, they are right that the law is stupid. Her grandfather married a commoner and he didn't have to renounce his title.

It's true that she doesn't lose anything but a meaningless title. I'd prefer that too from living the rest of my life with someone I don't like, but had to marry because the family chose for me.

Royal title is not that important when it has no real power behind it. It is money which gives you real status nowadays anyway.

It would be much harder for her, or anyone, if instead of royal title they need to give up all money and work like normal people.

Money = real power. It is not Middle Ages anymore to care about empty titles.

In Japan, the male members of the royal family can marry a commoner. This commoner lady will be later adopted to the royal family. Such privilege is not available for the women members. This has been the tradition for the past thousands of years.

Japan's Princess Mako is giving up her royal status -- all in the name of love.
The groom-to-be is a prince himself ... of sorts.
The Imperial Household tells CNN plans are underway for the 25-year-old princess, granddaughter of Emperor Akihito, to become engaged to Kei Komuro, also 25, a law firm worker and graduate student who once starred in a tourism campaign as "Prince of the Sea."

The couple met five years ago as students at the International Christian University in Tokyo, Japan's national broadcaster NHK reported.
It was while in university that Komuro played the "Prince of the Sea" in a beach tourism campaign for the city of Fujisawa, south of Tokyo.

That is the name of love that is far from precious position and status and many other privileges of love.
