It wasn't in her Will. It was a letter of Wishes, which (IM not a legal expert) hasn't got the force of a Will. she wrote a letter of wishes asking that part of her fortune should be distributed to her godchildren and the SPencer family ignored this, just giving the 17 Godchildren token presents.

If true I think the whole idea of a pact that neither would marry after their romance finished was a mad one anyway on Peter and Margaret's behalf. I believe Margaret was in love with Tony Armstrong-Jones but perhaps had doubts about his ability to be faithful, given his lifestyle up till then. Those doubts turned out to be justified, but she was nearly 30 and probably wanted to settle down and have children.

The whole thing was very sad, but given Margaret's temperament and upbringing I do wonder whether, if she had been permitted to marry Peter Townsend, the marriage would have lasted. I just can't see Princess Margaret settling down to a restricted lifestyle in Europe with not much money, relatively speaking, and a husband who was a private citizen.

I have read that Townsend in old age and in an extremely happy second marriage, would refer to those times with a perceptible sense of relief that things had turned out the way they had.

At the time of his father's death I believe Giles Townsend, the elder son from Peter's unhappy first marriage spoke to newspapers implying that his mother Rosemary had been wronged and that she had turned to another man in consolation.

She had become the guilty party in the divorce, it was implied, because it was unthinkable that Princess Margaret could be sued as co-respondent. Giles was about eleven at the time of his parent's divorce and was obviously sympathetic to his mother, Rosemary, who later married twice more. I don't know the truth of any of it, but it's logical, I suppose, that Rosemary may have guessed that her husband, who was away from her for long periods of time as Equerry to the King, was in love with another woman.

I happen to think Margaret would've been happy with Peter, if, there weren't any restrictions on a possible union. Thats was the sad part. Margaret and Townsend should've been allowed to marry without any restrictions.

I guess the timing and era was against them.

Their marriage was not only bad but, if I remember correctly, there was domestic violence involved.

At
I dont beleive she woudl have been happy had she had to give up "royal duties" (such as she did - she was never the most active royal) and to live quietly as the wife of an ordinary man. The RF could have made sure she had enough money to befit her status as an ex royal who had been brought up in luxury, but It would not have been the same as what she would have as a princess and the attention and service she got as a royal. And Im sure she would have been bored and resentful when she didnt have the same status or luxury.
Townsend would have probably found her spoiled and tiresome once they had the familiarity of marriage. I tink that he DID make a happy second marriage and was sad to have lost Marg but perhaps later did feel that things had worked out for the best for him. But she was IMO too spoiled and selfish... Tony Snowdon problaby got fed up iwht her too, and took off to other women and she had other men.
