We’ve all made some kind of sacrifice for love at some point or another. Perhaps it cost us a friend, a job or just a fair share of the doona.
But Princess Mako of Japan is about to pluck a page right out of an epic love-story to be with her special fella.
She’s going to renounce her crown.
According to the BBC, The Imperial Household of Japan has confirmed Princess Mako plans to marry law firm worker Kei Komuro, whom she met as a student in 2012.
In keeping with the nation’s laws, the 25-year-old will be forced to relinquish her royal status to proceed with the nuptials. Essentially, in order to marry a commoner, she must become one.
