I think the people at those societies are going to have a very difficult time calling her Ayako-san!

Marriage to a commoner! I have to change my visa from medical editor to commoner.

I think it's disgraceful that commoners are allowed to hold positions reserved for royalty. I'm very upset.

Gotta love the way they keep touting this ‘commoner’ word. To my knowledge, Japan has only one imperial family. Does this mean she was supposed to marry one of her cousins?

Why not do the obvious thing in light of the pool getting smaller; change the rules and let her keep the title!

women lose their royal status after marrying a commoner under the Imperial House Law.

Well that doesn't make any sense. What oyaji dreamed that up?

Even if that were a thought, there aren’t any male cousins for her to marry.

Kinda thought the title meant she would be allowed to use the title princess, just like a person with an honorary doctorate can use the title doctor.

The position isn't reserved.
