    DescriptionJapan's Princess Mako has finally married her college sweetheart Kei Komuro and in doing so she has lost her royal status because her husband is a commoner.

    It's the first imperial family wedding in the country in decades and had all the hallmarks of a fairy tale wedding but the royal affair went off with little fanfare because of the controversy surrounding the couple.
