"There is a different intimacy that comes with it, just knowing that's your person forever and being able to share, from the mundane to the most profound moments in your life.

Princess Mako of Japan — the eldest grandchild of Emperor Emeritus Akihito and the niece of the current Emperor Naruhito — has finally wed her fiancé of four years, who's a commoner. She and Kei Komuro, a former college classmate who in May graduated from Fordham Law School and now works for a New York City law firm, announced their engagement in 2017, but for years postponed their wedding because of a financial dispute involving the groom's mother and her former fiancé that sparked public disapproval. On Oct. 26, Mako and Kei wed in a civil ceremony, registering their marriage at a government office, then sat for a brief press conference (pictured) during which they apologized to anyone who was "inconvenienced" by their marriage, NBC News reported. "I love Mako," Kei told reporters, "and I want to spend my one and only life with the person I love." Mako — who has a master's degree in art museum and gallery studies from the University of Leicester and has worked as a special researcher at the University Museum of the University of Tokyo — called her new husband "invaluable" to her and said their marriage "was a necessary choice in order to live while carefully protecting our own hearts." Mako is required to give up her royal status, as dictated by Japan's imperial males-only succession rules, since she's married a commoner; she's also declined a lump-sum payment of about $1.3 million that female members of the royal family are entitled to when they lose their imperial status. The couple is expected to leave Japan and live in NYC.
