I like the title "Doctress of Music" - because it is so vitally important that we not accidently think she's a man. Not that anyone would think that of Princess Alexandra anyway. But we have to be sure!

I am evilly reminded of one of Professor Elemental's raps, which had a little bit of patter at the beginning on the recording:

"...basically, it lunged at me with its claws bared and its teeth clapped together, so of course I shot it in the face. Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be Princess Anne!"
