Due to intense pressure to have a family heir. His aunt, Queen Masako, has also been suffering from a stress-related illness.
Comoro first met in 2012 at the International Christian University in Tokyo. They got engaged in 2017 and were scheduled to get married the following year.

It is the Japanese royal tradition, that money has to be given to a member of the royal family when they leave the palace.
She is also expected to abandon the royal family’s wedding traditions at her wedding. If she sacrifices both royal rites and money, she will be the first woman in the Japanese royal family to do so.
Under Japanese law, female members of the royal family relinquish their royal status after marrying a ‘common man’, while male members of the royal family do not.
