Princess holly

Do you have to have both male and female? Will the female bloom and berry if you do not? I live in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains.

Yes, you do have to have both male and female plants to produce berries on the female. The female will produce flowers without a male nearby, though. This is true of Princess varieties as well as most holly varieties. There are also a few parthenocarpic varieties, meaning the female can produce berries without being pollinated by a male.
