Japan's Princess Mako announces engagement to commoner


This announcement kicks off a lengthy marriage process, and it also means the Princess will lose her Royal Status.


In a press conference on Sunday, she said she was first attracted to Kei Komuro's "smile like the sun".


"While I worked to help the emperor and fulfil duties as a Royal family member as much as I can, I've been cherishing my own life."


The formal announcement came from Japan's Imperial Household Agency on Sunday, after local media reported news of the planned engagement in May .


The announcement was originally expected in July, but was postponed after a rain disaster hit western Japan.
