Reports suggest that the Princess and Komuro, both 25, met five years ago at a party held to discuss studying abroad while they were students at the International Christian University at Tokyo. The Imperial Palace has not officially announced anything yet, but Japanese media believes that Princess Mako took Komuro to meet her parents and received their approval.
