Princess Margaret Rose & Antony Armstrong-Jones: May 6, 1960
Please post pictures of the engagement and Wedding of Princess Margaret Rose Windsor and Lord Anthony, Earl of Snowdon and Viscount Linley.
The groom's name was Mr Antony Armstrong-Jones, and he was created Earl of Snowdon and Viscount Linley before his wedding. He was never Lord Anthony since his father wasn't a duke or an earl.
Looking forward to the pictures!

He wasn't created Earl of Snowdon until a month or so before his first child was born. Margaret married Mr Antony Armstrong-Jones -- no title at all.

Thanks for all these pictures Mandy! They are all fabulous, especially the formal portraits of Margaret and Anthony Armstrong-Jones.
You're welcome Alexandria. I think that Margaret is one of the most beautiful brides.
Hapiness Can Be Hard to Find
Princess Margaret was beautiful enough for ten women. She was more than beautiful, she was lovely.
She was a princess who was independently wealthy with a splendid diamond collection.
But did she ever find hapiness? I just hope the first years of her marriage were good for her.
I have heard that Princess Margaret was one of most European prettiest women in the 50s to 60s.
Margaret Was Beautiful
I've seen lots of pictures in these pages and others, such as GREMB. Princess Madeline is spectacularly gorgeous, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa is beautiful, Queen Anne Marie is beautiful, and there are more (I'm sidestepping the recent group of gorgeous brides). But Princess Margaret had a combination of beauty and style that made her special, one of the great beauties of history. :)

I read that the Queen was intially reluctant about Margaret and Antony marrying. She knew they both had strong personalities and feared the couple would clash, but she still approved the marriage because she wanted Margaret to be happy after the Townsend affair.
Courtiers privately acknowledged that Tony would have a hard time adjusting, if he ever did at all, to following his wife, but there's no evidence the Queen ever voiced such worries, if she had them at all. A lot of courtiers said he wasn't perfect, but he was better than nothing at all. And Margaret really had nothing at all to choose from. All the other men who served as escorts had married, and he seemed to mesh well with her personality.
somebody scanned it for me from an old magazine, i believe the Queen Mother was between the 2 pages:(

I have read that the Queen was not against the marriage, but she did not want a lavish wedding. I think at the time people have already started to complain about the costly life style of the royal family.
