Exclusive royal rank in british navy?

I recall being told by my father, many years ago, that there is or was a rank in the British navy which could only be attained by someone of royal blood. I've spent the past half hour googling around, looking for information on this, but to no avail. It's possible I'm mis-remembering what I was told, that I misunderstood it at the time, or that he was simply wrong. Regardless, if this rank does or once did exist, I'd like to be able to reference it accurately. Can anyone shed any light on this matter?
