If Tia married before her grandfather became pharaoh then technically she was not a princess and a marriage to the treasurer would have been quite within her social circle.
Very true. I think this is the prevailing theory at this time. Certainly makes sense to me.
It's really interesting I think that her husband plays the prominent role in the tomb. Princess Tia is not depicted anywhere near as often as her husband. You would think that being the King's sister would get you some more "press time"
What 2nd Intermediate examples are there?:-)
Oops! I meant 3rd intermediate period. (But I think you realized that)

From K.A. Kitchen The Third Intermediate Period in Egypt
I don't know about the 2nd intermediate period. That's Hyksos period and some of the local Theban Kings. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the Princesses married commoners then.
Hmmm Getting pretty far away from Bint-Anath.
I was looking through the inscription that mention her. She is actaully fairly well attested as a Queen. She's second only to Queen Nefertari.
I find the stelas from Silsila and Aswan rather interesting. There she is depicted with her closest family members: King Ramesses II, Queen Isetnofret and the Princes Ramesses, Khaemwaset and Merenptah.
