In marriages, the Royal Families have been strict and have stayed true to their tradition and that is only those from the royalties can marry each other and you can be stripped off the title if you decide to marry a commoner.

Princess Ayako, 27, third daughter of Princess Hisako and Prince Takamado, was one of the princesses who were removed from their post, since she is set to marry Kei Moriya, who was only a shipping employee.

She lost her Royal Status since it is under the Imperial House Law, that no royal member of the family shall marry a commoner.

She is the second princess to announce her marriage after Princess Mako, 26 whose marriage with Kei Komuro was postponed until 2020.

On the other hand, Princess Ayako is the neice of Emperor Akihito. She studied at the University of British Colombia and currently serves as a Honorary Patron of the Canada-Japan Society.

Due to these news about marriages, the number of Imperial Household members has reduced to 17 thus reigniting debates on the ever-shrinking royal families.

While the last member from this generation who has not yet married, is a male and talks about Emperor Akihito's abdication from the throne has surfaced, it has stirred up concerns about the male-only succession.
