Twenty five-year-old Princess Mako, who is the eldest child of Prince Fumihito, made this announcement along with her fiancé, Kei Komuro, in a live presser on television on Sunday.

Shoko Kamano, 28, who promoted tourism for Shonan beaches in Kanagawa Prefecture with Komuro in 2010, said she was "really surprised" to know he was marrying the princess but "truly happy" to hear the news.

Mako has since introduced him to her parents, Prince Akishino, second in line to the Chrysanthemum throne, and Princess Kiko, as someone she wished to "share her future with". He'll be succeeded by his eldest son, Crown Prince Naruhito.
