Queen Victoria wrote this charming story about the adventures of Alice Laselles at Miss Duncombe’s school for girls and the mystery of who put the cat in Miss Duncombe’s kitchen, when she was just 10¾. This tiny gem in its little red notebook is now kept safe in the Royal Archives. It is told here for the very first time and is a delightful children’s story that will enchant and captivate every little princess today.
