If you follow Chinese politics at all, you'll have heard of a word that's become synonymous with corruption and privilege — "princeling".
The term refers to the offspring of Chinese party officials, and is often used to describe those who leverage their family connections into political power.

State news agency Xinhua recently released a number of in-depth profiles of high ranking Communist Party officials to celebrate China's power transition, and observers have noted that a large number of these officials have female offspring.
Amongst those who have daughters are President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang. Xi's daughter, Xi Mingze, is said to be a student at Harvard University, where she reportedly studies under a pseudonym and is protected by bodyguards.
According to Chris Luo of the South China Morning Post, Internet users have dubbed the female offspring "princesslings," and some wonder if these princesslings could do a better job than their male counterparts.
