A small snippet of the documentary, episode 2 of which covered Margaret's life on Mustique.

(Despite the wording, the video will play.)

And part of a German language documentary that contains the footage of Margaret realising what she is looking at in the Karma Sutra decorated tent mentioned up thread.

And the Les Jolies Eaux page from the Mustique company, that has the wonderful video of the renovated property.

It was at Les Jolies Eaux, that Margaret was able to have a private life with Roddy Llewellyn.

But with series 3 of "The Crown" said to be focused on this time in her life, I expect a lot more articles about that time to come out.

It already looks like it's starting with reports in Tatler and Harpers Bazaar.

And with them, new - as in new old - photos.

Here's an article with a new old photo of Margaret, Roddy and Anne Tennant that looks to me to have been taken on Mustique.

I wonder if the old newspaper front pages, with the nude hijinks photos from the time of the scandal breaking, will resurface as well.

More about Margaret's life on Mustique from Anne Tennant's wonderful new memoir, including -

- how the princess showered from a bucket amongst the trees in the early days

- had mice climbing up her bed netting during the night

- first visited the location of Les Jolies Eaux wearing Lord Glenconner's pyjamas

- and wasn't bothered about her swimsuit being see-through when wet!
