Queen Victoria’s Herbarium?

I just read a blog post on Atlas Obscura about seaweed herbaria focusing on the 1848 scrapbook of Eliza A. Jordan.  In the article, Allison Meier mentions that Queen Victoria reportedly made such an album when she was young.  This just adds to my long list of notables with herbaria, from Goethe to John Stuart Mills to Paul Klee.  Laura Massey also has a post about seaweed scrapbooks, and cites the same reference about the Queen.
