In 2005, when Camilla Parker Bowles married HRH The Prince of Wales, she used the style Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall rather than Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales, mainly due to the fact that the latter style was associated with Diana, Princess of Wales, the Prince of Wales's first wife.
Daughters of sovereigns- HRH The Princess "X" Male-line granddaughters of sovereigns- HRH Princess "X" of "Y", where "Y" is the territorial designation of their father’s peerages, eg HRH Princess Alexandra of Kent.
