The sister of King George V, The Princess Royal, phoned him every day, Is it true that one day she came on the line and thinking the King was already on the line said "Hello, you old fool." The operator then said "Beg pardon, Ma'am, His Majesty is not yet on the line."

Or was it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princess_Victoria_of_the_United_Kingdom as opposed to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise,_Princess_Royal ?

It could well have been HRH The Princess Victoria. Thank you for your post.
