In a video shared by Aljazeera, the couple met each other in 2012. Komuro who is a lawyer is said to be a very controversial figure in the US.
How they planned to marry
The couple’s plan to marry in 2018 was put off after reports said that the man’s family was facing financial difficulty.
Though the Japanese strips a woman of her royalty when she marries a commoner, the same does not apply to men. Not having enough males in the family has been stirring a succession crisis.
