Ja, hun heter Victoria. Vi har ingen kunglig familj i Finland, så våra tidningar måste skriva om den svenska kungliga familjen.

Yes, "hon" of course. I've been doing Danish here and keep writing "hun" and "er". :P

if you delete "what is", it should be accepted.

do you know what is the name of the Swedish crown princess? was rejected. Why? It is correct English.

No, it's not correct English. The words "what is" do not belong in that sentence.
You can take those two words out and say: "Do you know the name of the Swedish crown princess?" or you can change the word order like this: "Do you know what the name of the Swedish crown princess is?"

This is slightly off the topic of language, but.... Is a "crown prince" or "crown princess" a royal child?
Does a "crown princess" become a "princess" at a certain age?
Or is the "crown prince" the one who is in line for the throne, and his brothers are just called "prince"?
Sorry if this is obvious but we don't have these people in my country and I'm not sure what the difference is between a prince/ss and a crown prince/ss.

Your last guess is correct - a crown prince/ss is the next in line for the throne and their brothers and/or sisters would just be called a prince/ss.
