According Anita Singh, Arts and Entertainment Editor at The Telegraph “a story written by Queen Victoria when she was 10 years old is to be published for the first time, revealing the vivid imagination of a little girl who dreamed about life beyond the palace walls.
The Adventures of Alice Laselles is the charming tale of a girl sent away to boarding school against her will. There is a wicked stepmother, a one-eyed French orphan and a dog called Frisk who dines on buttered toast. It will be published on June 8, with the author billed by her full name as “Alexandrina Victoria, aged 10 and ¾”. ”
