Rajkumari


Explanation:
The correct translation is 'Rajkumari' for princess.
The translation for 'prince' is 'Rajkumar'.
The translation for 'king' is 'Raja'.
For 'queen', it is 'Rani'.

Interestingly, the terms 'raja' and 'rani' have entered the English language surreptitiously during the British Raj [rule] in India.

Rajkumari


Explanation:
Pronounced raaj-ku-maar-ee. It is the exact synonym of the word 'princess' in Hindi. It literally means Royal Damsel (raj=related to a raja, kumari=damsel, lass)

Rajkanya


Explanation:
Rajkumari is the perfect word, actually, if you want it in Hindi. As someone else suggested, Shahzaadi is right if you want it in Urdu. Rajkanya is an alternative for Rajkumari, and means Royal Girl (Raj = Royal, Regal; Kanya = Girl, Daughter).

shahzaadi


Explanation:
even thought rajkumaari is a correct answer, it does come close to the word "princess" in terms of love that is meant while calling some one princess.

Shahzaadi is more apporopriate as it means some one very beautiful and may be a little spoiled. urdu/ hindi literature are full of examples where one calls her daughter or lover as 'shahzaadi'. I have never seen 'rajkumaari' used in a similar situation.

rajkumaari bring up in mind the image of power.
