Japanese Princess Mako, the oldest grandchild of Emperor Akihito, has postponed her marriage to a commoner until 2020 instead of this year, Japanese media reported. The Imperial Household Agency issued a statement saying the delay in the wedding planned for November came when the princess recognized "the lack of time to make sufficient preparations," according to the Nikkei Asian Review. "It is because of our immaturity and we just regret it," the palace statement added. Mako and college classmate Kei Komuro announced their engagement in September to massive media and public attention. The move means the wedding will take place after Emperor Akihito abdicates in April 2019, with Crown Prince Naruhito, Mako’s uncle, succeeding the Chrysanthemum throne the next day.
