Storyline

Following the death of her father George VI princess Margaret hopes to marry the war hero Peter Townsend but is told that if she does she will be cut out of the Civil List and receive no money. Throughout her life she is criticized by the anti-Royalist MP Willie Hamilton. She pursues a hedonistic life-style more suited to a wealthy upper class woman than a royal but in 1960 she meets and marries the photographer Anthony Armstrong-Jones and they have two children. However Margaret's insistence on being a party girl puts a strain on the marriage and they drift apart, each having affairs. Depressed when one of her lovers Robin Douglas-Home kills himself Margaret finds unexpected solace with the much younger Roddy Llewellyn, an aspiring singer who lives on a commune and whop shelters her from publicity. However they are snapped kissing and are emblazoned across the gutter press. For Armstrong-Jones and the royal family this is the final straw. Margaret is last seen on the Caribbean island...

Dire
30 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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!
