   schema:reviewBody ""She was only the younger sister but, unlike Her Majesty the Queen, she was flighty and flirty and became a celebrity in her own right. When she died in 2002, Princess Margaret was vilified in many quarters as a hard-living capricious parasite, yet she was also mourned by many who loved her and by those whose interests she dutifully served." "Famously unable to live out her first great love with the handsome courtier and former Battle of Britain ace Peter Townsend, the Princess later married the bohemian photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones and, when the marriage foundered, conducted at least two well-publicised liaisons - with a society pianist and a celebrity gardener. At the same time she was a dutiful mother to her two children and seriously religious." "With unparalleled access to papers in the Royal Archives at Windsor, to family friends and associates, to those who loved her and those that didn't, Tim Heald unravels the many complexities surrounding Princess Margaret's enigmatic and compelling character."--BOOK JACKET." ;
