KGB finally admits it bugged the Royal Family by placing listening devices in Princess Margaret's ashtray
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.
