TOKYO – Princess Mako of Japan is ready to refrain from paying a million dollars to relinquish her royal status to marry her college classmate, media reported Saturday.
Prince Akishino’s 229-year-old daughter and her former college classmate Kei Kamuro announced their engagement in 2017.
But the marriage was postponed after news of a financial dispute between Komuro’s mother and her ex-fianc.
The government has agreed to refrain from paying 150 million yen (.3 1.355 million) for the princess princes, relinquishing their status to marry the general public.
The wedding date could be announced in October, the NHK said.
Officials at the Imperial Household Agency were not immediately available for comment.
A Japanese broadcaster, anticipating an upcoming wedding, recently tracked Komuro in New York. He was shown a ponytail game, which caused a stir among some Japanese Twitter users.
According to media reports, the couple is planning to live in the United States. Under Japan’s only male royal inheritance law, female members of the royal family lose their dignity in marrying ordinary people.
