Like regicide, but for princesses

I'm writing a book set in a medieval fantasy world so I figure this is the proper place to post this, please move it if I'm wrong. It's a murder mystery, and the murdered royal family member is the king's daughter. There seems to be a few different words for a princess; I've seen from some googling: princeps, principissa, regia puella, regis filia, etc. What would you guys call a princess, and what would you call the murder of a princess?

Cool, thank you for the reply. I didn't figure there'd be a tidy little term for it but that's fine. I kinda like principissae homicidum so I'll likely use that. If you or anyone else has any more insights I'll of course love to hear.

I'll stick around here, I would love to begin my learning and maybe get help producing supplemental material, like maybe news articles and in-universe research notes and the like. Of course anyone helping and the site itself will get credited.

Thank you again :)
