Alexandra and Edward [to a lesser extent as he was known to acquiesce to his wife's wishes where their children were concerned] are said to have rejected two prospective suitors of Victoria for reason that they were commoners.

But did Victoria have any royal suitors? It seems to me that Alexandra decided that Toria would never marry with her permission but perhaps I am wrong; maybe the "right" man did not come along.

Princess Victoria

I've heard that she changed her religion around 1917.
Do you know anything about?

I have never heard anything about this.

As she never lost her place in the line of succession she never converted to Roman Catholicism.

She had an Anglican funeral at St Georges Chapel at Windsor so I would assume that she remained Anglican throughout her life.

I have just finished reading John Van Der Kiste's "Edward VII's Children" and he tells some amazing stories about Princess Victoria.

Some familiar (the one about her call to her brother the king and instead getting the operator) and others more new to me. For example, she apparently took to liking whisky after her mother's death and so did her chauffeur. To hide the smell he used extra strong mints; one day she protested to him, not about his drinking but the smell of the mints!

Another touching one was two soldiers were injured near a house she was staying at and they were taken there where, not only did she attend to the first aide, but she arranged for them to see their regiment march past their window when the two were in hospital.

In a Royal Profile, it mentioned Princess Victoria "devoted herself to her main recreations of music, gardening and photography - an interest she inherited from her parents".

I have read that Pv grew quite bitter and unpleasant later on, due to hating her life as outlined by her mother. Everyone knew that her mother would create roadblocks indefinitely to keep at least one girl from marrying and at the time, Maude was developing various crushes, which were unsuitable, so it was determined she would get married, and Victoria knew then she was stuck forever with her childish, possessive mother. Edward VII never dared interfere, due to his own "lifestyle". So she became a victim of her mother's selfishness and father's philandering, really. After QV had married a daughter to a subject, that excuse was gone, so she could have married. In fact, oldest sister Louise married an Earl (18 years older), many say just to be sure she escaped Alexandria.

Princess Victoria collected autographs.
She had an autograph of her first cousin, Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany.
She had an autograph of Emperor Hirohito of Japan.
She had an autograph of Woodrow Wilson of the United States.
In The Royal Victorians, Christopher Hibbert wrote:

On Princess Victoria's birthday a children's party was given each year by the King and Queen at Buckingham Palace where balloons were shot up into the sky and, on bursting, discharged presents all over the lawn while excited children raced about to pick them up.
