I've been wondering about this one for a while.

If Leia's mother is Vader's (former) wife, why is she a princess?  The
only excuse I can think of is that her mother was royal herself, in
which case, it would have been quite obvious to anyone that Leia was
Vader's child (anyone can count to nine) since both Leia and her mother
would have been public figures.  Since this is quite obviously not the
case, whence the title?

In the NPR Adaption for Star Wars, Captain Antilies (captain of
the Tantavie IV (sp?) gave the droids some sort of Overide code
and told them to protect the identity of the princess.

This adaption co-ordinated by Lucas was very well done and explains
many things that were edited out of the movie. It starts long
before "A New Hope" and tells how the rebels got hold of the
plans for the Death Star, The actual movie parts do not begin until
episode III or IV of the 13 part Series.

Obviously c3p0 was lying.  He didn't trust Luke, and quite sensibly
would not tell a new owner about belonging to the Rebels, since it
would be likely he'd have his memory erased.

Droids rights?  Recall that r2d2 was casually sentenced to a lobotomy
by dear old Owen Lars (Obi-wan's BROTHER, as revealed later) just because
he might have some sensitive information in him.

It is possible that C3PO knew that Leia was aboard without having met her.

/**** Just in case ****/
   I would say that C3PO knew that the princess was on the ship, but had never
actually meet her in person.  This seems had to believe, but considering his
ineptness about things I could belive that he didn't put two and two together
when he saw the holograph.

Princess who?
   I agree with all the previous suggestions about C3PO trying to protect
the princess and the rebelion, but consider this:
  Perhaps C3PO knew he was on the Princess' ship, but didn't know
who the princess was or what she looked like.  This would explain the 
comment about the ship, and why he didn't know the vision in the
hologram.  It's only a suggestion....
