An in-depth biopic of Princess Margaret from the days following her father's death in 1952 until the 1970s. She was known to be a flamboyant royal but she remained a stickler for protocol. She had many controversial romances and also infamously kissed the daughter of the US ambassador. Also the film gives some focus on what others thought of Margaret, from normal people of the era to a backbench MP opposed to her 1961 wedding. Written by
Lillebet and Margaret Rose ALWAYS referred to their uncle as "Uncle David", which was his given name. The idea that Princess Margaret, years later in conversation with Prince Philip, would call him "Uncle Edward" is totally preposterous.
At her coronation, Queen Elizabeth II had 2 children (Charles and Anne). That would make her only sister third in line to the throne (not fifth, as claimed by the bogus announcer). Yes, years later 2 further children pushed Margaret back to fifth in line - - but certainly NOT at the time of the coronation. See more »

This is one very dire production. The general consensus has always been that while Princess Margaret may have been spoilt and pampered and may have revelled in the excess of luxury at her disposal, she was a very beautiful young woman. Here was the production's weakest point, the actress failed to get that across. It also appeared that the production budget couldn't stretch to a hairdresser - from the outset, the hair on the Princess Margaret character had a permanent birds nest in disarray look and looked as if she had been dragged through a bush. The actor playing the Duke of Edinburgh appeared to have prepared for his role by watching Rory Bremner imitate Prince Charles and was farcical.
The production was a flaw ridden, cliché ridden, embarrassing load of rubbish. I think all Daily Mail readers deserve a free DVD copy for Christmas!
