This is a story of a non-royal woman who marries the prince of Japan in 1959. It is a world of customs and traditions and prescribed ways of life, where the royals are guarded and controlled by everyone around them. Haruko is not a happy princess, but she loves her husband and eventually adapts. It is a peek into an unknown world for westerners.
