TORONTO, May 25 (UPI) -- A Toronto woman crowned the winner at a city hotel's inaugural Queen Victoria look-alike contest said her trick was entertaining the judges.

Elizabeth Fitzgerald, 30, winner of the contest hosted by the Fairmont Royal York and Vancouver Island's Victoria Gin, was awarded a hotel package including a night in the Prime Minister's suite, breakfast in bed, a spa package, dinner and a bottle of Victoria Gin, The Toronto Star reported Tuesday.

"I made the judges laugh," Fitzgerald said of her approach to impersonating the queen. "That's why I won -- I hammed it up."

"I'll probably be wearing this crown around the house," she said.
