The Princess revealed that she met Komuro in a University in Tokyo during her freshman year.
"First I was attracted by his bright smile", Princess Mako said of her fiancee during a press conference. The royal family last wedding ceremony saw Princess Noriko of the Imperial family marry Kunimaro Senge, the eldest son of the chief priest of Izumo Taisha, a Shinto shrine.
The agency, which initially planned to disclose to the public the couple's informal engagement in autumn this year or later, moved up the schedule to July 8, following a flurry of media reports that preparations were under way for the engagement of Princess Mako and Komuro.
The marriage could also reopen debate on the law that has been governing the royal household since 1947 that doesn't recognise the so-called collateral institutional branches, resulting in women who marry out of royalty to lose their royal status.
Princess Mako, the eldest grandchild of Japanese Emperor Akihito, officially announced her engagement with Kei Komuro, a former university classmate. "I believe the two are going to build a wonderful family".
Asked about the proposal, Komuro said, "I said to her, "Let's get married" in December 2013".

Komuro is now working in a law firm while studying business law at Hitotsubashi University. But official sources have confirmed that it delayed after a rain disaster hit western Japan.
Komuro, a resident of Yokohama, is working at a Tokyo law firm as well as studying business law at the Hitotsubashi University Graduate School of International Corporate Strategy.
Princess Mako's engagement is expected to be announced in the coming weeks, after which an official date will be set.
On Sunday evening, Princess Mako and Komuro were slated to have a dinner with Prince Akishino, Princess Kiko and Komuro's mother at the residence of the young princess' parents in the Akasaka estate. However, news of the engagement - and Mako giving up her royal status - didn't make headlines until earlier this year.
In 2016, 83-year-old Emperor Akihito announced publicly that poor health following heart surgery and prostate cancer had made him unfit to properly fulfill his duties as emperor of the country.
