Japanese princess will get married – level 1

06-10-2021 15:00

Japanese Princess Mako will marry Kei Komuro on October 26. Mako is 29 years old. She is the niece of Emperor Naruhito.

She meets Komuro at college. They get engaged in 2017. An unpleasant situation happens in Komuro’s family. People write about his mother. She has debts.

Mako starts to have health problems. Mako and Komuro postpone the wedding. Komuro leaves Japan. He studies in the US. He returns home last week.

It is usual in Japan that when a princess gets married, she will not be a part of the royal family anymore. She will be an ordinary person.

Difficult words: debt (money which a person must pay back), postpone (to change for a later time), ordinary (the same as everybody or everything else).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
