HA! This is rich. Compare the two quotes here; first, we have the most recent one where she talks about the new book club she’s going to form:

Books that Victoria wants to talk about, include Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Emma’ and ‘Sense and Sensibility’, as well as tomes by literary giants Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy.
