Was Leia a Princess or a democratically elected princess?.
Okay I dragged myself through the EU swamp that is Wookipedia and apparently Bail Organa was the Prince and his wife only became Queen after marrying him. Don't ask me why she has a higher status title, it doesn't say. Maybe it's a matriarchal planet. Bail is all kinds of political things besides being a senator and presumably he was elected to them, though I would assume the privilege of his birth had a hand in that. Leia became a Princess when she was adopted. She became a Senator presumably in her own right.
