Did You Know?


The scene in which Tony Armstrong-Jones (Matthew Goode) rides a motorcycle with Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby), eluding official security, is reminiscent of Goode's character 'Ben Calder' on Chasing Liberty (2004), in which he rides a scooter with Anna Foster, the American first daughter (Mandy Moore). In many ways, these scenes echo an iconic moment in the romantic comedy Roman Holiday (1953). See more »


When the Queen and Philip are in bed and the telephone rings, it is an American one ring and not the British two ring, and the pitch of the bell is too high. See more »


Tony Armstrong-Jones: A facade is only useful as a marker for something one has to get behind or beyond. The surface is so dreary, don't you think?

Margaret Gets Her Moment
17 December 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I find Princess Margaret to be a very sad character. She has to constantly play second fiddle to the Queen and to the Queen Mum. She loved someone but her station prevented her from doing anything about it. So she has become the free spirited (naughty) child. In this one we meet the notorious photographer that captured world news, Anthony Armstrong Jones (Great Name) who because of his caustic nature, attracts Margaret. There are two contrasting scenes. In one she is photographed by the stodgy guy who has done royal photos forever. Every one of them has a sameness to it. The other is her meeting with Jones who uses creative tricks to get the shot he wants.
