Kako joined some 500 fellow students at the ceremony, held in a campus chapel in the College of Liberal Arts on Friday. 

In a written statement to the media, Kako said: ‘It is not about what I want to do, but about addressing the official duties that have been asked of me. I do have dreams, but I would like to keep them to myself.’

Last week, Kako also addressed reports regarding the postponement of her sister Princess Mako’s marriage to legal assistant Kei Komuro – saying she wished the couple every happiness. 

When asked about her own marriage prospects, she reportedly replied: ‘I wish to get married in time, at a point that isn’t too late. My ideal partner would be someone with whom I can be relaxed.’

Princess Kako is the second daughter of Prince Akishino, who is the second son of Emperor Akihito.

Last summer, Kako appeared for a press call at Leeds University to mark the end of her year as an exchange student in the UK.

She studied performing arts and psychology during her nine months in the West Yorkshire city.

But she did not answer questions about her time in Leeds – leaving reporters to wonder whether she had squeezed in a trip to watch football at Elland Road, sampled cricket at the nearby Headingley ground or had even heard of the famous students’ bar crawl known as the Otley Run.

Instead the princess chatted with university vice-chancellor Sir Alan Langlands and Professor Alice O’Grady, Head of School of performance and cultural industries. 

Kako enrolled at the university in September 2017 as part of its study abroad programme, before returning to finish her undergraduate degree at the International Christian University in Tokyo.

The princess, who is said to have a keen interest in the arts, completed modules in the school of performance and cultural industries, including performance design and stage management, during her time at Leeds.

These modules were complimented by elements of social psychology.
