Princess Victoria, who is King Edward VII's youngest daughter, "has the most curious hobby in the family that has several unusual fads," reports the Los Angeles Times. She is interesting in book binding.
For the past few years, the princess has "devoted a great deal of time to learning how to be an expert book binder." A few months ago, several book covers were sent to an exhibition with the name Miss Matthews. These covers were favorably received by the judges, and "received several prizes." It was only when the prizes were award did the judges and everyone else learn that Miss Mattthews was HRH Princess Victoria.
