  Princess Royal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Princess Royal is a style customarily (but not automatically) awarded by a British monarch to his or her eldest daughter.
The style is held for life, so a princess cannot be given the style during the lifetime of another Princess Royal (in particular, Queen Elizabeth II never held the title).
Princess Mary, Countess of Harewood (1932-1965) · Princess Louise, Duchess of Fife (1905-1931) · Victoria, Empress Frederick (1841-1901) · Charlotte, Queen of Württemberg (1766-1828) · Anne, Princess of Orange (1727-1759) · Mary, Princess of Orange (1642-1660)

Scenes shot there include Princess Mia's arrival at the palace; Mia's date with a young suitor, which is interrupted by a hail of paparazzi flashbulbs; and one of Mia's first official appearances in Genovia as Princess—a formal ceremony in which Mia reviews the Royal Guard of Genovia, and endures a bit of equestrian embarrassment.
