Only if every one of the ancestors between him and you was the eldest surviving son - in which case your father would be a prince, so you wouldn't be asking this question. Otherwise, of course not. A 15th great-grandfather will have lived at least 400 years ago, and might well have a million or more descendants. Obviously they can't all be princes or princesses.

Only if your father is a prince are you a princess. The rule for inheriting titles is that one's father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and so on are titled king or prince... the titles must go continuously down the paternal generations, and issue must be legitimate, the product of a legally married couple.

It is possible to have royal ancestors in one's family tree without being royal one's self. You have royal ancestry, but you are not titled. Your father would be titled and you would have known all of your life about your titles if you were.

A princess is either:

* the daughter of a king and queen

* the daughter of a prince and princess

* the wife of a prince; women assume titles and styles of their husbands while

men do not assume titles and styles of their wives

* a woman bestowed the title in her own right by the monarch

We all have royal ancestors. It's meaningless. If you go back far enough, you'll find that everyone on the planet has royals dangling from the upper branches of his or her family tree.

To be a princess, you need to be born one -- meaning that your parents and at least one set of your grandparents are royal -- or you need to be married to a prince.

No you are not. Only to mummy and daddy.

No, you are not a princess unless one of your parents are a prince or princess, also the title has to be on your birth certificate.

No. You’d know about it if you were.

One is a prince or princess only if their immediately family still possesses a kingdom.

It is possible, but not very likely.

It also depends what country you are in,

if it is the UK you won't be.

Hello luv. You are a princess in your heart if it’s your desire to be one, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

No. Because the prince sh4gged some chamber maid.

I'm similar with Scottish ancestors - going back to Scottish Kings, but I'm not a Princess!! So no. You'd have to be born a Princess (from titled PARENTS or marry into royalty.

No, you are not.

Sorry !

Not necessarily. But if you are a princess by birth, it is likely that your 15th great grandfather was a prince.
