Princess Margaret with her children, Colin and Anne Tennant and their children, Roddy Llewellyn and Prince Charles' friend Lucia Santa Cruz pictured in 1973. (Not on Mustique.)

http://c8.alamy.com/comp/B5234A/at-c...lyn-B5234A.jpg



Within hours of meeting Roddy Llewellyn, in Scotlant, Princess Margaret went shopping and brought him a pair of Union Jack swimming trunks he was later photographed wearing on Mustique.



It was on Mustique that Princess Margaret had the first of her strokes.

Dinning with friends, it was the quick action of Anoushka Hempel in having Margaret take some aspirin, with it's blood thining effect, that helped limit the severity of the stroke.



It was on another trip to Les Jolies Eaux that the Princess badly scalded herself by confusing the plumbing system and having the hot water pour out of the taps straight onto her feet, instead of through the shower.

With her circulation hindered she did not register the damage, but was also too shocked to move, sitting on the edge of the bath calling for help, which was not heard.

A staff member realised steam was coming from under the door and her detective broke the door down.

It wasn't until her lady-in-waiting Anne Tennant phoned the Queen that arrangements were made - some weeks later - to fly Margaret back to the UK on Concorde for treatment, which was not completely successful.



Royal reporter Nigel Dempster related a incident he had on Mustique with Princess Margaret.

He was driving the Princess down to the weekly "Jump Up" get-together when they hit a pot-hole in the road and his hand flew off the steering wheel.

It landed in Margeret's lap, on her hands, and she quickly closed her hand around his.

She didn't release his hand until they arrived, and then charmingly told him he should remember who she was.

(Even when swimming, a member of the group would have to swim alongside Margaret keeping up a non-stop conversation.)

New Zealand journalist Ross Waby - who was based in New York at the time - heard that Princess Margaret was on Mustique with Roddy Llewellyn in February 1976.

By hiding his tattoo, travelling under a different name and posing his family for photos, he was able to capture Margaret and Roddy sitting together on the island.

http://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/9...0a52fe880dd0ff


When the photo was published in the UK, it brought about the official end of the Princess's marriage and questions about the financial support given the Royal Family by Britain's taxpayers.

And yes, that is "The Queen" actress Helen Mirren at the piano - a fellow commune member of Roddy's.

Have the Queen and Prince Philip ever visited Les Jolies Eaux?

Certainly not for one of Margaret's crazy parties, I'm sure.

Interestingly enough Rupert Prinz zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg, so close to the Rolling Stones and the Mustique Clique was a very conservative Catholic man. His two sons both entered priesthood, one of them even at the ultra-concservative FSSP, the most traditional priestly society in the official Church of Rome. This means he has no male heirs. His only daughter, Marie Prinzessin zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg married a Count della Gherardesca. It is intriguing that such a "heavy" and grounded man as Prince Rupert could bear the unbearable lightness of the lives of the Rolling Stones or Princess Margaret on that Ibiza-clone, called Mustique

Thanks Duc_et_Pair.

I always find your posts - on many different threads - very interesting.


If you check post #10 on the previous page Kronprinz, there are photos of The Queen visiting Princess Margaret on Mustique, with the Duke of Edinburgh.

They did not spend the night, but slept aboard Royal Yacht Britannia.

I'm not sure if I posted it or not, but there is a first-hand report from someone, (a lady-in-waiting perhaps), about the Queen being able to swim on one of her visits there.

How she was able to have a very small taste of her sister's more free lifestyle - and how she was able to avoid being photographed in a swimsuit by being on Mustique.

I think The Queen visited Princess Margaret there three times.

There are lots of articles and videos about the Mustique lifestyle with information about William, Catherine, the Queen etc, on the internet, but I have not posted them all, as some details are not savoury.

For example, Colin Tennant's Karma Sutra illustrated tent that Princess Margaret was filmed in for a lunch after Les Jolies Eaux had been sold by her son - she had to stay with friends on that occassion.

The documentary makers caught her realising what she was looking at, and she made a hasty departure. That tent is also on the internet, up for sale.

Prince Andrew took Koo Stark to Les Jolies Eaux and there are a couple of photos of them in the pool.

A lot of information, youtubes and photos are on the internet nowdays. There are quite a few first-hand reports of the nude frolics, open-air sexual adventures, some shady characters etc. A lot I chose not to post.

Even first hand accounts of the food that Margaret and her house-guests ate - even down to the brands.

Although a beautiful place, food was not the high standard of a lot of tropical resorts these days - the logistics were harder then. Home-owners would fly out from the UK with large hams in their luggage to give themselves something to eat.

Roads were dirt tracks, mosquitoes were a big issue - Colin Tennant said to have gone broke trying to eradicate them.

But still, the idea of being free in a warm and sunny climate to go down to your private beach to swim and shall we say, experience other activities. All with close friends and company - such a different life for the Princess, where even behind Palace doors, a level of formality and ritual must have been stifling.

The television series referred to in this article is currently screening here in Australia.

Such a scandal at the time, so interesting to hear that the Queen was ok - at least by the time of Margaret's passing - about her sister finding some happiness in her personal life.

(Photos taken on Mustique exposed the relationship.)

While checking out various instagram postings of Mustique's fiftieth celebrations that William, Kate and family are thought to be currently enjoying - forty minutes of fireworks for the Gold Gala!!! ...

... I came across these photos and descriptions of Les Jolies Eaux from the long ago "Architectural Digest" article.

An article I've longed to see/read since first becoming aware of it, but which until now, I couldn't find.


Thank you to the gentleman who first posted this.


Curryong - I love Princess Margaret's quote of the pleasure of arriving at the house.

No wonder she spent as much time there as she could.

I love the all encompassing blueness - the sea, the sky, the pool.

Can imagine balmy Carribean breezes coming into the house through all the open doors and windows.

So beautiful - a true escape for Margaret back in the day when it was so off the radar and even on Mustique itself, away from everyone else, on the quiet side of the island.

We'll all have to save up and do a group booking together!

A nice article about the resoration of Margaret's relative Lord Litchfield's Mustique villa, "Obsidian". (And the princess's closest neighbour, just up the hill from her villa.)

Tropical heat and salty air meant the replacement of every window and the woodwork of the building.

Even so, the updating kept a great deal of the original home's style and character - more so than Les Jolies Eaux perhaps.

Even some of the replacement furniture was designed after the original.

Things so different from Margaret's day - new buildings going up in the view of her villa.

Despite today's luxury, the original days must have truly felt an escape from everyone and everything.

And now the complete episode is available on the internet - here in Australia at least, hope you will be able to play it elsewhere.

Episode 2, "Castaway" of the recent BBC production "Princess Margaret: The Rebel Royal".

The first episode was also very interesting, but it is this episode that covers Margaret's Mustique years.

There are many previously unseen private photos of Margaret on Mustique. (And elsewhere - hugging a tree in Scotland, looking quite startling in a platinum blonde wig! etc.)

Wonderful that these images are now out in public.

Also in this episode is the "missing" part of Margaret and Colin Tennant in the temporary pavillion he erected on Mustique when neither of them, (I believe), any longer had their homes on the island.

This is from a documentary that actually had a cinematic release in Australia at the time, and of which there is quite extensive footage on the internet. But this section was not, until now, available, (although the DVD is for sale still.)

The tent Colin Tennant ordered for this visit, contained depictions of the Karma Sutra, and the complete footage had Margaret turning on her heels when she realised what she was looking at.

And that tent was recently also on the internet for sale.

(That documentary was called "The Man Who Bought Mustique".)

This episode also covers the scathing reaction Margaret's private life provoked. Hard to believe the shock all this caused at the time.

And a first-hand account of Margaret's accident with the hot water on the island.

Although some of the released private photos are only a quick flash, they are interesting to see as they have been hidden for such a long time.

Don't miss the photo of The Queen in the doorway of Les Jolies Eaux with Margaret.
