Former princess Mako Komuro and her husband are planning to leave Japan for New York on Sunday, a source familiar with the matter said Friday.

The newlywed couple, both 30, are scheduled to depart from Haneda Airport to start their new life in New York, where Kei Komuro works as a law clerk at a legal firm after graduating from Fordham University's law school with a Juris Doctor degree in May.

The Komuros have already secured a place to live in the U.S. city, according to the source.
