[NEWS] Princess Hisako’s daughter Ayako to get engaged to businessman

Text from The Japan Times

Princess Ayako, the youngest daughter of Princess Hisako and the late Prince Takamado, Emperor Akihito’s cousin, will get engaged to a businessman, the Imperial Household Agency said Tuesday.
The future husband of the 27-year-old princess is Kei Moriya, 32, an employee of major shipping firm NYK Line, the agency announced.
Princess Ayako graduated from Josai International University in Chiba Prefecture and earned her master’s degree there in 2016. She is working as a research fellow at the university’s Faculty of Social Work Studies.
In 2014 her sister Princess Noriko married Kunimaro Senge, the eldest son of the chief priest of Izumo Taisha, a Shinto shrine in Shimane Prefecture.
Last year, the agency announced the planned engagement of Princess Mako, the eldest granddaughter of Emperor Akihito, and Kei Komuro, but said in February that their wedding had been postponed until 2020 due to “lack of preparation.”
Under the Imperial House Law, female members of the Imperial family lose their royal family status when they marry a commoner.
When Princess Ayako and Princess Mako marry, the size of the Imperial family will drop to 17 and the number of female members to 12.
