Monarchy has been in existence since historical times and some countries still follow the custom of King, Queens, Prince and Princesses. A Princess is the daughter of a King and Queen. A Princess may or may not be an heir apparent to the throne, may be married or unmarried. This regal rank is conferred through either marriage to prince or by birth to a monarch or a sovereign prince. In contemporary world, while most countries have monarchs as ceremonial heads, only some countries still have an autocratic rule by kings and queens. There are over 190 countries and over 4000 languages which are spoken across the world.
