Princess Priscilla has been promised in matrimony to the prince of Savona, but she is not of the mind to go through with a marriage to a man she has never even met. With her professor at her side, she leaves her palace and sneaks away to London. Although relieved to have escaped an unhappy fate, she is disturbed to discover that a handsome stranger keeps following her all over London. Needing money, the princess finds employment working for a toney milliner on Bond Street. One of the shop's clients takes an interest in her; unfortunately, the woman is a forger and she uses the unwitting princess in one of her schemes. Arrested, the princess protests her innocence, but it is only through the influence of the stranger who has been stalking her that she is released. It turns out that the stranger is actually the prince to whom she is promised and whom she is now happy to marry. Originally shot as a silent film, sound sequences were added before its release.
