Oh I see. Thanks. I think it's good they are doing this. Maybe when they become adults they will start to do engagements on their own.

I guess she will. Just like former Princess Sayako did, or Takamado Princesses. As you can see in this picture, http://www.yuko2ch.net/mako/mako/src/1269499103243.jpg,
she's included in an official picture, obviously she immediately started to be treated like an adult. Adult royal member to be precise.

BTW I wonder whether Kako will get a chance to go homestay abroad like her sister.

'Cicak' attracts Princess Akishino at bazaar

Princess Akishino, the wife of Japanese Emperor Akihito's second son, opened the event at the ANA Intercontinental Tokyo hotel May 16th 2010.
The wives of Indonesian diplomats said they were honored by the first-ever visit of Princess Akishino to the event.
Princess Kiko, as she is called affectionately, had asked specifically about one item sold at the bazaar, a palm-sized wooden cicak (gecko lizard) adorned with batik motifs. After the background of the object was described, the princess, unexpectedly, told her staff to buy it. - The Jakarta Post

Princess Kiko, the wife of Prince Akishinonomiya who is the younger brother of the Crown Prince, appreciated the documentary movie titled "The Eye Contact", which focuses on the activities of the Deaf women soccer team, in the hall located in Minato Ward, Tokyo on September 4.

Princess Kiko talked with the teammates who appeared in the movie and the coach in sign language. She has used the sign language since her college days. - Full article DeafJapan.blogspot
