02.06.2017;Thimpu, Bhutan: PRINCESS MAKO OF JAPAN WITH KING WANGCHUCK AND QUEEN JETSUN PEMA OF BHUTAN<br />
at the audience with the King at the Tashichhodzong. <br />
Her Imperial Highness Princess Mako of Japan, the granddaughter of The Emperor of Japan, is on a 9-day official visit to Bhutan.<br />
Princess Mako will soon lose her royal title. Under Japan’s controversial law, any female royal family member loses her status on marrying a commoner. This has reignited debate on the male-only succession to the world’s oldest hereditary monarchy with the emperor also possibly abdicating soon.<br />
The 25-year-old eldest granddaughter of Emperor Akihito will become engaged to law firm worker Kei Komuro, also 25, whom she met while studying together.<br />
The engagement will only be official after a ceremonial exchange of gifts, with the wedding expected to take place next year.<br />
