Victoria, Princess Royal (1840 – 1901), 1855

“At nearly fifteen the Princess Royal was not unlike her mother at the same age, but taller (five feet, two inches) and better-looking. Her nose was smaller and straighter, her mouth less set. But it was her remarkable blue eyes with their level gaze, curiosity, and humour that were her best feature. That and a ready smile, which lit up her soft, young face and ‘bewitched those who approached her’.

She struggled against weight, ached to be ‘thin and interesting,’ and knew that her body type was against her. Stubborn but eager, opinionated and informed, she spoke in a gentle, ‘almost timid’ manner, although she was very definite in her likes and dislikes. […] The Queen, according to Lord Clarendon, was ‘always finding fault with her daughter’s looks, and complaining of her being ugly and coarse very unjustly" – An Uncommon Woman, Hannah Pakula
