Just married for a week, the former Japanese princess and her husband were heavily criticized by the people for a series of unusual actions, different from their previous commitments.

On October 26, Princess Mako married her civilian boyfriend Kei Komuro in the fierce opposition and discontent of the Japanese public. As a rule, she gave up her royal title, became a “commoner” Mako Komuro and of course could no longer enjoy the privileges of being a member of the royal family. The young couple will have to take care of their independent life in New York (USA). Former Princess Mako also refused a dowry of about 30 billion VND to avoid criticism of the people.

The couple’s financial ability was widely discussed after the wedding, especially when Kei Komuro had just received the results of failing the bar exam in the US. Since he cannot work as a lawyer as planned, he will have to keep the current salary of a legal assistant and cover the expensive cost of living in New York becomes an issue for the couple.

However, life 1 week after marriage of Mako and Kei is not as difficult or completely independent as everyone’s regulations and images. The couple has moved in temporarily in a luxury apartment in Shibuya ward, central Tokyo with the rent of about 800,000 yen per month (about 150 million VND).

An employee of a real estate company in this area said: “Their residence is a luxury apartment near Aoyama-dori, where there are many fashion shops and cafes. The Komuro couple are on the top floor of the building. Imagine it as a luxury room. in a typical 5-star hotel. It’s a popular type of apartment with full service and facilities, and is often rented by wealthy foreigners in the medium and long term.”.

Mako and Kei’s comfortable post-marriage life makes many people question

Another source revealed to Yahoo News: “It is said that the staff of the Imperial Household Agency will take care of the daily shopping. This is not an ordinary employee, but an employee employed by the Akishino family. Mako has left the royal family, people thought she wouldn’t be supported anymore but the “help” continued”.

In addition, currently Mako and her husband are still being protected by a powerful team of 30 police officers on duty 24/7. Many of this security team is under the command of the Security Bureau of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department and a number of other authorities. Specifically, there are 5 to 6 guards outside the building and 4 to 5 people inside the building. The security team is divided into 3 shifts per day, so in total it is estimated that up to 30 people are working to protect the former princess.

On October 28, when Mako and Kei arrived At the driving license test center in Tokyo, the couple was also seen with strong protection from bodyguards. Inside the car was a female officer and behind was a police car with 4 guards.

According to Japanese media, within a month, the security cost for the Komuro couple can be as high as 20 million yen (about 4 billion VND). This information received a lot of criticism because public opinion said that Mako is now a commoner, but she still enjoys privileges and spends taxpayer money.

Mako still hasn’t had a “commoner” life after giving up her title

However, with Royal body, “caring for former members” is also part of the job. In 2005, when Princess Sayako was newly married, at first she also had staff to assist with daily shopping before getting used to the rhythm of “commoner” life. The strong security support for the Mako couple is unprecedented but is considered necessary because the couple is the focus of public opinion and needs strict protection.

The security protection for the former Princess Mako when she came to the US to settle is also another problem causing headaches. Most likely, she and her husband will still be supported and protected when they go abroad. A Japanese journalist living in New York revealed: “Before Mako came to the US, the staff of the Consulate General of Japan in New York worked for many months. They conducted in-depth research from the security system to the accommodation, to the place of daily shopping. It is possible that the Royal Authority requested cooperation because of a directive from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.”.
