* It's implied in FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse that Luna and Celestia used to use the title of Princess because they were co-rulers. Especially since when Celestia went off the deep end and became Corona, she insisted on being referred to as a Queen. Presumably Luna refrained from claiming the title of Queen after her sister's defeat to avoid the traumatic associations the title had picked up for Equestria's ponies.

** The Season 3 finale ''[[{{Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure}} Magical Mystery Cure]]'' finally explains this in-universe. The princesses aren't from a bloodline, they're chosen due to their talents. [[spoiler:Like Twilight at the end of the episode.]]

[[spoiler:Like Twilight at the end of the episode.]]]] The Season Six premier, ''[[{{Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E1TheCrystallingPart1}} The Crystalling]]'', confirmed that this also applied to Celestia and Luna, when they state that Equestria had "never seen a pony born an Alicorn", despite the two princesses having been shown to be alicorns from a relatively young age when originally fighting Discord.

** And on the opposite end, the series also has Prince Blueblood, who is not an [[WingedUnicorn alicorn]] and is not really connected to the throne at all. WordOfGod says that he was supposed to be a Duke, which would have been more appropriate, but they weren't sure whether the kids would know what a duke is.

* Despite the heavy use of EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses, this trope is averted by the Franchise/{{Disney Princess}}es, as none of them are actually in a ruling capacity, except for [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire Kida]], who appropriately becomes a [[TheHighQueen queen]] at the end of her film. However, the franchise may have contributed to the trope's perpetuation, through films like ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' that could cause one to perceive queens as [[GodSaveUsFromtheQueen "evil"]], and princesses as "[[PrincessClassic good]]".
** [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]], like Kida, becomes queen as shown in ''The Little Mermaid 2''.
** [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Prince Uncouthma of Odiferous]] rules his people and there's no mention of a King or a Queen.
** In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', Elsa (the older sister) does become queen, while her younger sister remains a princess.

* The Princess of Alamut from the ''Film/PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime'' film.
* In ''Film/TheLastAirbender'' the voiceover explicitly states that the Northern Water Tribe is ruled by a princess because her father was killed. In the [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender original series]] her father, Chief Arnook, was alive and ruling himself.

* In ''Film/{{Cinderella 2015}}'', this is implied to be the case with Princess Chelina, as Zaragoza was historically a principality and the fact that her parents are never mentioned. This could suggest that she is directly involved in her engagement to Kit, and that it is her way of being Queen.

to:

* In ''Film/{{Cinderella 2015}}'', this ''WesternAnimation/MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers'', Minnie is implied to be cast in the case with role of Princess Chelina, Minnie. Despite this, she's pretty much queen in every other aspect.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheSecretDoor'', this is played with,
as Zaragoza was historically a principality and BigBad Princess Malucia only rules the fact that kingdom while her parents are never mentioned. This could suggest that away.
* In ''WesternAnimation/BarbiePrincessCharmSchool'', the land of Gardenia is a kingdom, as late monarch Isabella [[spoiler: (Blair's biological mother)]] was called a queen. Still, her niece Delancy is supposed to sit on the throne while being called a princess.[[spoiler: When finally Blair is crowned instead of her,

* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', the ruling system is quite complicated. For one, there are several Queens, all sisters. Their daughters take over some of the rulership tasks. Ruling is something like a family business in which everyone takes part.

*** In German, the term "Fürst" is used for the reigning monarch ("Fürstin" being the female version), while "Prinz"/"Prinzessin" refer to the children of monarchs. Thus, no ambiguity between the two positions exists in German-speaking Lichtenstein. In French-speaking Monaco, on the other hand, both the reigning monarch and children of the monarch are referred to as Prince/Princess. The term "Prince Souverain" ("Sovereign Prince") is used to clarify things. Or Sovereign Princess in one case, because unlike Lichtenstein [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_Hippolyte,_Princess_of_Monaco there has actually been a reigning Princess of Monaco]].

* Played straight with Peyton Flanders (Motts) from ''Film/{{Hand That Rocks the Cradle}}.'' The whole point of this movie is, "The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world." Of course, Peyton acts like a total spoiled princess.
