That's exaggerated. She went to see her sister in Norway on a fairly regular basis and they always tried to make sure she had a very good vacation.

Toria was lucky that Alix had Dagmar, to visit and spend time with.

I’m sure I’ve read that Toria’s female friends contrived to have her go and stay with them and their families on regular breaks. And also that Lenchen’s two daughters lent a hand as well.

Im sure people were sorry for her, even though she was said to be rather crabby. But it was hard fro her to escape Alix, and by the time AL died it was probably late for her to have any real life of her own. Unlike the daughters of George III, most of whom managed to get married in later life...
