Princess Marie-Louise, one of Queen Victoria's last surviving tribe of granddaughters, paints a charming and interesting picture of her childhood. The 'snippets' she gives about her grandmother are fascinating and fully corroborate those of Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, who often mentioned that Queen Victoria was full of fun, laughed uproariously, and wasn't at all dour. The latter sections of the book in which the Princess talks about her travels and connections with various charities are less interesting, the travels particularly as they lack piquant description or detail. (Oddly, the Princess very often apologises for 'having talked to you at length about...' when she has hardly skimmed the surface!)
But for enthusiasts of Queen Victoria and her family, the book is certainly useful.
