The tale of Princess Margaret's search for true love is one filled with heartbreak, tough decisions and scandal. An idyllic childhood, surrounded by her sister, mother and father, swiftly changed into an upbringing full of loneliness.
With tension rising between the Queen and the media, the royals were unwillingly thrust into the spotlight. In a nutshell, the Queen desired compassion and fairer coverage in a year which she felt had allowed her neither.
From her dramatic almost-marriage to her very public divorce, Margaret’s turbulent love life dominated the royal spotlight for years. The Princess’s romantic entanglements were the stuff of rumour, tabloid speculation and scandal, yet they played a critical role in modernising the royals.
