Society

Japan's Princess Mako married her commoner boyfriend Kei Komuro on Tuesday, the Imperial Household Agency said, after years of controversy over a financial dispute involving his mother leading the couple to forgo traditional ceremonies associated with a royal marriage. The agency submitted legal paperwork to register the couple's marriage on their behalf, four years since their relationship was made public.
