Thank you very much for further elaboration. My question remains tho, is a granddaughter really considered a princess. Iwant my daughter to respect decorum and reflect well upon her family and especially her new school.

I didn't realize Brits or at least some of them entertain a disdain for royalty that is comparable to that of mine for Trump. I guess the expression "royal pain in the ass" must be as old as the hills.
i think the only people who love the Royal Family are just Traditionalists, the last person that was really loved in the Royal Family was Princess Diana

the director chose our daughter to greet the granddaughter of the Queen when she visits the project.
Can this 'director' offer any insight as to your question? Surely your granddaughter won't be the only soul interacting with the Queen's granddaughter.

I'm sure part of this directors duties is dealing with these charitable donations and the individuals involved. Maybe he can offer some insight or know how to contact someone that can.

The director of a school in Kampong Cham paid a visit to our family this afternoon. After viewing the children's academic records and talking with us, the parents, he decided to accept them on the spot.
This sounds very odd, are you sure it's not some kind of scam, is this guy who visited you legit? They could be human traffickers on a scouting mission for all you know!

The school is new to me; the director explained that it is in part funded by charitable donations.from the Royal Family; furthermore he chose our daughter to greet the granddaughter of the Queen when she visits the project.
Again, sounds a bit dodgy...you might want to conduct some due diligence. And which Royal Family was he referring to, Cambodian or Commonwealth or other?

All of this background leads up to my question "how should my daughter address the Royal Granddaughter?" Are there any ceremonial requirements expected of her e.g. curtsying etc.? I thank my British colleagues in advance.
This will depend on which Royal Family.

I will indeed have a talk with the director if for no other reason than to find out the name of this Royal personage.

"Re Trump...You should always ask yourself the question. What would have happened if Trump lost. Answer. America would be well and truly screwed by Hilary Clinton. You got the lesser of two evils. Same as us. No decent politicians anywhere. All snout in the rough, freeloading, self opinionated blowhards."

I will never forgive the Democratic Party for backing Hillary. Trump however has no social graces and is an international laughing stock. He is a total embarrassment and a closet fascist to boot. The election proved George Bernard Shaw was right, " In a democracy people get what they deserve and deserve what they get."

No worries at all; it's legit. My wife che led it out in person. Commonwealth royalty; my wife would need no help with addressing Khmer royalty.
