Mako Mako, the eldest daughter of the Akishino family, and Kei Komuro, the eldest daughter of the Akishino family, are reported to be planning to register their marriage as early as October.
In the four years since their informal engagement press conference, there have been numerous reports about the couple’s personal lives. In the end, the financial troubles between Komuro’s mother, Kayo, and her former fiancé remained at a standstill, and the “marriage report” came out without any progress.
It is said that Mako intends to decline the lump-sum payment of more than 100 million yen associated with her withdrawal from the imperial family, and there is also a possibility that she will not perform any ceremonies that were customary for the royal family.
“It is likely that Mako’s true intentions are to feel sorry for the people of Japan and not to hold any ceremonies in public. This is not only the intention of Princess Mako, but also the consensus of the Akishino family and the entire Imperial Family. However, it would be unprecedented if they were to omit the “Asami-no-gi” ceremony, in which they are to greet Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress when they leave the Imperial Family.
The Asami-no-gi should be considered separately from this marriage. It would be unthinkable for her to leave without greeting the people who have been so kind to her.
There will be no events related to the marriage, no lump-sum payment, and we can see from Mako’s seriousness that “all that matters to me is that Mr. Komuro is here.
Once Mako has registered, obtained a passport, and moved to the U.S., she is no longer a private citizen. I wonder if she is even thinking of having a private wedding in a wedding dress.
If so, it would be natural for her to want her parents, relatives, and friends to come to the wedding. ……
“I’m sure that even if the wedding were to take place in the U.S., the Akishino family, Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress, and other members of the Imperial family would not be able to attend. Regardless of your intentions, you can’t blame them for thinking that the marriage is over and that you’ve been kicked out of the US.
In the eyes of the public, it may be difficult for her to even head to the Akishino family, even as a homecoming, in the future. I just hope it doesn’t come to that, but I think it’s safe to say that he married Ms. Komuro in exchange for her readiness to be seen by the public as ‘disowned’.
(Women’s magazine reporter) Such a thing should never have happened, but there were elements that made me feel that way.
The reason for this is that the Imperial Household Agency has yet to make any official comment on the marriage, despite the fact that there have been so many leaks about it from the Yomiuri Shimbun and other related parties. The reason behind this is said to be the existence of a document for Noriko’s birthday on September 11.
“As with last year, Noriko announced that she wanted to respect the feelings of her eldest daughter as much as possible. I think that the Imperial Household Agency is delaying the official announcement so that they don’t have to say much about the core of the marriage.
And they should make an official announcement by October. I think that’s why Noriko doesn’t want to talk about Mako’s marriage right now. Given this, it is highly likely that the Akishino family will keep their distance from Mako after the marriage.
“In Shukan Shincho, there is an anecdote about Kayo.
“In “Shukan Shincho,” as an anecdote, Ms. Kayo said happily, “Princess Mako says that she likes her mother (Noriko) more than her mother.
I don’t know why Mako thinks that way.
Why is Mako prepared to be seen in this light, and why is she forcing the marriage? Why did she fall in love with Mr. Komuro and his son? It seems that these questions will never be clarified…
