daughter of a king, royalty
Lauren
 姫 Hi or Hi-Me
Explanation:
There are many different words used for princess but the word used most often is "Hi"(pronounced 'Hee') or Hi-Me' (pronounced Hee May).
'Hi' usually comes after the name: for example, the late Princess Dianna of England was affectionately called "Dianna Hi" in Japan. The word 'Hi-Me' often appears
in fairytales. For example Princess Jasmine in the Disney animation is Jasmine Hi-Me in Japan.
