Japan's Princess Mako finally marries commoner boyfriend 日本の小室眞子がついに庶民の彼氏と結婚


BBC News on Youtube shows that Japan's Princess Mako has married her college sweetheart Kei Komuro - thus losing her royal status.

Under Japanese law, female imperial family members forfeit their status upon marriage to a "commoner" although male members do not.

She also skipped the usual rites of a royal wedding and turned down a payment offered to royal females upon their departure from the family.

She is the first female member of the royal family to decline both.
