From DM article:
Quote:
One omission from the obituaries on Princess Margaret’s private secretary Lord Napier, who has died aged 81, concerns his crucial role in the fraught conclusion of Margaret’s marriage to Lord Snowdon.
In the summer of 1976, Margaret abruptly announced she was getting divorced while her husband was in Australia with Lucy Lindsay-Hogg. But as Snowdon flew back to Heathrow, Margaret realised he would head to Kensington Palace, where the couple lived with their two children, David and Sarah. The hapless Napier was dispatched to intercept Snowdon. ‘It was extremely delicate,’ says a friend. ‘Napier liked Snowdon and Snowdon liked him. He was faced with telling him to find somewhere else to go. Not a nice thing to have to do.’ Snowdon was diverted to his mother’s apartment in Belgravia and the Queen later bought him a palatial grace-and-favour Kensington house — now worth £12 million.

Princess Margaret told Taylor diamond was vulgar
Quote:
As Taylor's career faltered, the lack of roles was softened by her ownership of the world's two most famous diamonds and largest pearl. Such feelings are, of course, relative. Many's the woman for whom the pain of leaner years has been lessened by the knowledge she's got a bracelet from Argos.
Among the star's gaudiest items was the vast Elizabeth Taylor diamond. Princess Margaret dared to tell Taylor she thought it vulgar. The actress asked her to try it on. "Not so vulgar now, is it?" she gloated. It'd have served her right if it had been eaten by a Corgi.

Don't know if there is a thread on her husband, but is it true that Tony A. Jones had his first child with another woman when he was on the path of becoming engaged to Margaret?
Every time I read about Princess Margaret I want to go back and do a "do over" with her. Let her go to school and be educated.

I expect some of you are already aware, but the BBC have released a copy of Margaret's interview with Desert Island Discs from the early 80's. A interesting interview and some interesting choices of music.

Did Mick Jagger have an affair with Princess Margaret? They shared wild parties in London and Mustique and friends said she was smitten. No wonder the Queen is still haunted by the question
Quote:
At the core of the Queen’s distaste for Jagger was something far more personal: his relationship with her free-spirited younger sister. Time and time again, the monarch had intervened to cover up potentially scandalous revelations that would have linked Princess Margaret with the bad boy of rock. One of these concerned an outrageous party at which drugs were served — and which led to Margaret being rushed to hospital.

Margaret was very beautiful, but I get the impression she'd have been a particularly difficult indavidual at the best of times. Rather spoilt and self centred.

Without doubt she knew how to make things difficult for her sister on occasion.

KGB finally admits it bugged the Royal Family by placing listening devices in Princess Margaret's ashtray
Quote:
Soviet spies have admitted using bugging devices on the Royal Family and former British Prime Minister Harold Wilson. Secret agents from the KGB targeted Princess Margaret in the 1960s, attaching listening aids to her lighter, cigarette case, ashtrays and telephones. According to the Sunday Express, they homed in on the Princess during a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark in 1964.
Knowing how KGB operated, this doesn't surprise me in the least. In fact, I would be extremely surprised if all senior political figures (royal families included) of all more or less important countries weren't bugged at some point. KGB was very efficient in that respect.

I too am not surprised and I am sure that the RF knew or at least suspected this was happening and took some precautions - just as I hope all senior political figures do today as I believe that there are many agencies with the capability and desire to bug many places.

So I am curious, what ever happened to the Princess Margarets supposed love child? He was supposedly given permission to see her will or something? Anyone hear what the outcome was?

Dman - thankyou for the link to that radio interview ["Desert Island Discs"] with Princess Margaret, above at post #221 - it was absolutely delightful to hear her speak and to learn a little about her.

He won the right to go to court to fight to be able to see the will in February 2008 but lost that case.

He was reportedly going to then try to use Freedom of Information to access the wills.

Margaret was cheated out of a good life. Of course, she should have said good-bye and married Peter Townsend. Status was too important to her. Her, "supposed", child should run. Except the money would be great.

Thanks Iluvbertie. Whatever happened to him then? Is he still around and is he still trying to get something out of all of it?
