Born at Buckingham Palace, sixth child of Queen Victoria.   Was a talented sculptress taught, and possibly more, by Joseph Boehm.  In 1871 caused a stir by marrying John Douglas Sutherland Campbell, Marquis of Lorne and heir to the dukedom of Argyll, but not actually royalty.  He was appointed Governor General of Canada in 1878 and she moved with him to Ottawa as his vice-regal consort. She was the most artistic of Victoria's children, being an able actress, pianist and dancer and a prolific sculptress.  Amongst her works was a statue of her mother in her coronation robes. She died at Kensington Palace.
