    Not all princes are royal, some being only serene, but "highness" is always right.

    No, a prince is addressed as your royal highness.

    Depends on whether he is an imperial, royal, or lesser prince. If imperial, he is "Your Imperial Highness" on first address and then "Sir." If royal, he is "Your Royal Highness" on first address and then "Sir".

    If he is a serene highness or otherwise just a member of the highest level of the nobility in his country (in some nations, such as Russia, princes were basically the equivalents of non-royal dukes elsewhere), he is "Your Highness" and then "Sir," or, if you are on very friendly terms, you just address him as "Prince". Or maybe by his first name, if you're one of his close friends.

    That's if you're writing a story set in a historical era. Many countries have abolished not only royalty but also the high nobility that included dukes and princes, and there's only one country -- Japan -- that still has an "imperial" family, though it no longer has an empire. And royalty is often much more casual these days than it used to be.

    Sir if speaking to them, their title if speaking ABOUT them. "Yes, Prince James(or Crowned prince), Duke of brooklyn, said xxxxxxxxxxx"

    Different rules if you are a direct subject of theirs though.

    A crown prince (next in line for the throne) would be addressed as Your Royal Highness or Your Highness. Other princes would be addressed as Your Grace.

    A prince is addressed as Your Royal Highness, then as Sir.

    Only a peer is addressed as "My Lord." The peers who are addressed as Lord are marquess, earl, viscount, and baron, A duke is addressed as Duke or My Lord Duke, and Your Grace.
