Japan's Princess Mako marries commoner, quits royal family******


Japan's Princess Mako and husband Kei Komuro attend a news conference at the Grand Arc Hotel in Tokyo yesterday to announce their wedding.

Japan's Princess Mako, the emperor's niece, married her commoner college sweetheart yesterday and left the royal family after a years-long engagement beset by scrutiny that has left the princess with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Mako and fiance Kei Komuro, both 30, announced their engagement four years ago, a move initially cheered by the country.

But things soon turned sour as tabloids reported on a money scandal involving Komuro's mother, prompting the press to turn on him.

The marriage was postponed, and he left Japan for law studies in New York in 2018 only to return in September.

Their marriage consisted of an official from the Imperial Household Agency, which runs the family's lives, submitting paperwork to a local office in the morning, foregoing the numerous rituals and ceremonies usual to royal weddings, including a reception.

Mako also refused to receive a one-off payment of about US$1.3 million typically made to royal women who marry commoners and become ordinary citizens, in line with Japanese law.

The couple held a news conference, also a departure from custom. While royals typically answer pre-submitted questions at such events, Mako and her new husband made a brief statement and handed out written replies to the questions instead.

"Some of the questions took mistaken information as fact and upset the princess," said officials at the IHA, according to NHK public television.

Komuro, dressed in a crisp dark suit and tie, bowed briefly to camera crews outside his home as he left, but said nothing.

His casual demeanor on returning to Japan, including long hair tied back in a ponytail, had sent tabloids into a frenzy.

Just months after the two announced their engagement at a news conference where their smiles won the hearts of the nation, tabloids reported a financial dispute between Komuro's mother and her former fiance, with the man claiming mother and son hadn't repaid a debt of about US$35,000.

The scandal spread to mainstream media after the IHA failed to provide a clear explanation. In 2021, Komuro issued a 24-page statement on the matter and also said he would pay a settlement.

Public opinion polls show Japanese are divided about the marriage, and there has been at least one protest.

Analysts say the problem is that the imperial family is so idealized that not the slightest hint of trouble with things such as money or politics should touch them.

The fact that Mako's father and younger brother, Hisahito, are both in the line of succession after Emperor Naruhito, whose daughter is ineligible to inherit, makes the scandal particularly damaging, said Hideya Kawanishi, an associate professor of history at Nagoya University.

"Though it's true they'll both be private citizens, Mako's younger brother will one day become emperor, so some people thought anybody with the problems he (Komuro) had shouldn't be marrying her," Kawanishi added.

The two will live in New York, although Mako will remain on her own in Tokyo for some time to prepare for the move, including applying for the first passport of her life.

Ukraine, Russia conduct first prisoner swap******

Ukraine and Russia conducted the first prisoner swap since the start of the conflict, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said on Thursday.

Ten Ukrainian prisoners-of-war held by the Russian military were released in exchange for ten Russian soldiers captured by Ukrainian forces, Vereshchuk said on Facebook.

Besides, Ukraine handed over 11 civilian Russian sailors, who were rescued from a sunken ship near Odesa to Russia in exchange for 19 Ukrainian civilian sailors, Vereshchuk said.
