If Mr. Brown won't take the DNA test, this would tell really a lot.
But if the Palace refused to give Princess Margaret's DNA sample, I don't think it would tell so much; after all, they can't allow themselved to set such a precedent.

Margaret was cremated so the palace doesn't a ready source of her DNA. They would have to test it against Sarah, David or the Queen. But why open yourself up to every crackpot requesting DNA from various royals.

The palace not giving a DNA sample doesn't say anything about the legitimacy of this claim - it says that they're not going to open themselves up to every person who claims to be a long lost child of a royal.

This guy has to know that he's not going to get a DNA sample from Margaret's family, so it doesn't really matter if he's lying or not in his claims as he has to know that they'll never prove him wrong.

Exactly.

Philip's DNA was used to prove (or disprove had that been the case) that the remains were in fact those of known and acknowledged family members - those of his grandmother's sister and her family (he would have had the same female line DNA as Alexandra and her children due to his descent from Alexandra's sister).

To force The Queen, as Margaret's sister, or her children, to provide DNA to prove or disprove a 'believed' by the claimant and not acknowledged or accepted by the royals themselves leaves them open to every crackpot doing the same thing.

On the other hand, it definitively squashes said crack pot immediately and permanently.

Even I dont support entertaining every nut job claiming to be a long-lost child of a royal, or a real heir to the throne. But just wanna know wat s the legal system in UK..
I mean its the court that should decide right? If a person can request for a DNA test or not.. How the "Palace" decides?

I don't see any compelling evidence that would cause a court to order a DNA sample. Even if he was Margaret's son, he is illegitimate and not in the line of succession. The will was executed so if he was left something (highly unlikely), it would have be distributed.

It's like the heads of the Hydra; you cut one head and ten new will spring up. The world is full of people who thinks, they are Jesus Christ or a lost child or I don't know what.

Not necessarily - as we saw with Diana's will - the wishes of the deceased can be ignored or overridden.

Really? I never knew this. Which wishes in Diana's will were ignored? And how come they got away with that..without having their heads chopped off by the ultra-loyal Di-brigade...

The December 17, 2012 edition of People magazine had an exquisite photograph of Princess Margaret Rose near a climbing red rose.
I thought how appropriate to have roses with a princess whose middle name is Rose.
HereditaryPrincess, The photos of Princess Margaret are absolutely lovely!
As a child: She looks like it could be Easter Sunday.
As a baby with her mother: The Duchess of York has a pretty hairstyle. Princess Margaret's painting captures her childhood glee beautifully.

I stumbled across these photos of Princess Margaret from various stages in her life whilst browsing on Pinterest last night:

As a child ~ As a baby with her mother ~ I've never seen this photo of Princess Margaret before, at first I didn't think it was her – she looks different here ~ Princess Margaret horse riding/racing ~ Princess Margaret with Diana, Princess of Wales ~ Princess Margaret with long hair in 1969 ~ Princess Margaret and a toddler Lady Sarah Chatto ~ Princess Margaret with Prince George, Duke of Kent and his wife Princess Marina ~ A painting of Princess Margaret done in her childhood ~ Princess Margaret and the then Princess Elizabeth at Girl Guides

Since Princess Margaret doesn't have her own picture thread, I thought I'd post these here - at first I wasn't sure whether they belonged in the picture thread for the BRF in general or this thread.

I like the part where Princess Margaret and Antony got to view all the lovey flowers. These flowers are a gardener's delight!!
