The current situation of former Japanese princess Miko, who is living in New York, USA after giving up her royal status and marrying an ordinary person, is drawing attention. It has been over two months since the news of her husband’s second dismissal from the public of her own.
The Daily Mail reported that Princess Marco was recently caught going out with her husband, Gummy, in Manhattan, New York.
In the photo released by the Daily Mail, former Princess Mako has long straight hair, is wearing a black T-shirt and jeans, and wearing sneakers.
Her husband, Gomuro, has long hair tied into one, and is dressed in a white shirt and a black suit.
Princess Marco’s life in New York was also reported in November of last year.
At the time, former Princess Mako was shopping alone. She held a large shopping bag in her hands and asked a passerby as if lost. It is known that he did not take any of his clothes with him when he left the royal family.
The Daily Mail reported that the dress style of Princess Mako, who used to only wear a hahan dress, has completely changed.
In the photo, Marco was wearing a t-shirt and oversized jeans, and was wearing a comfortable coat.
Fashion designer Don Cornish said, “Mako, who used to wear luxurious dresses, is now a perfect commoner.”
In April, it was reported that former Princess Marco was working as a volunteer to help exhibit Asian art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Former Princess Mako majored in art and cultural properties research at the International Christian University of Japan (ICU), and obtained a master’s degree in exhibition related art from the University of Leicester, UK in 2016. He also served as a special researcher at the University of Tokyo Museum of Art.
A curator from the Metropolitan Museum of Art said, “Princess Marco deserves a job at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.”
Former Princess Mako, the nephew of Emperor Naruhito, announced his marriage to Komuro whom he met in college in October of last year.
The couple, who moved to New York, USA, are said to be living in a luxury one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan.
Although it has one bedroom, it has facilities such as a fitness center, yoga studio, movie theater, spa, and golf driving range in the building. The rent for this one-room apartment is $4,809 per month (about 5.7 million won). On the other hand, it is known that a gay man’s annual salary is around 60 million won.
After studying at a law school in New York from August 2018, her husband Komuro took the bar exam in July last year, but failed. She took the exam again in February of this year, but was not on the list of successful candidates announced last April. According to the New York State Bar Examination Board, 3068 people applied for this exam, and about 1,378 passed, with a passing rate of about 45%. Last year’s exam pass rate was 60%.
