The 28-year-old Japanese Princess ties the knot with 32-year-old Kei Moriya who is an executive employee of Nippon Yusen Shipping company on Monday. The wedding took place at Tokyo’s historic Meiji Shrine. Although Japanese royals for the past 3 generations had gained the freedom to marry anybody of their choosing, the women are made to relinquish their royal status after they marry commoners.

However, when the Princes marry commoners, they become a part of the imperial family. However, Princess Hisako, mother of the newlywed princess says her daughter will continue to retain patronage over two institutions belonging to the family.

Speaking on her marital decision, Princess Ayako says:

“I’m filled with joy to get married and to have so many people visit us at the Meiji Shrine and congratulate us.”

According to The Independent, the Japanese royal family is running short of males owing to its laws of having its princesses relinquish royal ties. Crown Prince Naruhito, who takes over after Akihito abdicates next year, his brother Fumihito, his nephew Hisahito and Masahito, the octogenarian brother of the current emperor, are the only four male heirs to the throne left.”
