|Princess Noriko's Wave Tiara|
Video: The last time Noriko wore the tiaraThe last time this tiara was worn (to date) was Princess Noriko's official visit to the Emperor and Empress before her October 2014 wedding. She married a commoner, Kunimaro Senge, giving up her title and officially leaving the imperial family, as is mandated by imperial household law. She is now known as Noriko Senge. (To clarify something that has been a source of confusion in the past, "leaving the imperial family" means on official terms only. Princesses that marry out of the family are not cut off from their families on a personal level.)
