Princess Margaret (left), with her mother and sister. Princess Margaret was the daughter of King George VI.

Princess Margaret was aged 14 when Group Captain Peter Townsend became her father's Equerry, and Deputy Master of the King's Household.

It has been suggested that Princess Margaret, while still in her teens, was sleeping with Peter Townsend, a married man with children.


At the age of 16, Princess Margaret was being chaperoned by Townshend during a royal tour of Southern Africa.

Speaking of Townsend, Princess Margaret told a confidante: 'We rode together every morning... That's when I really fell in love with him.'

In 1947, Peter Townsend accompanied 17-year-old Margaret to a ship launch in Belfast and 'requested a bedroom adjoining hers.' 

"It seems that when the Princess launched the Union-Castle liner on October 16, 1947, she was already in a relationship with Townsend, who was then 32 and the father of two young sons...

"A request was made for them to have adjoining bedrooms at Hillsborough Castle, the then governor’s official residence in Belfast."


Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong Jones, the parents of David Linley (David Armstrong Jones) and Lady Sarah Chatto.

In 1960, Margaret married the photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones.

She reportedly accepted his proposal a day after learning from Peter Townsend that he intended to marry a young Belgian woman,[61] Marie-Luce Jamagne, who was half his age and bore a striking resemblance to Princess Margaret.[62]

Margaret and Armstrong-Jones divorced in 1978.

Princess Margaret 's lovers are said to have included:

1. Sharman Douglas, the daughter of the US ambassador to Britain, in 1949.

"Sharman was then 19, the Princess 17...

"According to a Channel 4 film in 2005, they were lovers...

"The film claimed that the women had a two-year relationship."

  2. A fantastic documentary about greed, happiness, Buddhism, and eternal life. Is our capitalist way of life making us happy, it seems not? Even with more and more possessions we are still not fulfilled and keep on buying new things to get that short lasting thrill.

    But are we trying to bury the thought of our deaths when we buy more and more things we don't need, or when we are always desperately trying to have more fun? According to the documentary makers it isn't just me that gets morbid about death more often than I would like. (Alcohol is a good temporary solution but it doesn't last, sadly). The documentary says how we feel spiritual but it irks us when realise that we aren't so different from the animals.

    Go to 1:14:00 to see what it says about death if you don't have time to watch the documentary but are interested in that part.

    It also talks about a psychologist who is studying stockbrokers. He has software programs simulating investing and most people stop when the risks get too big, but the stockbrokers just keep on going until it all goes bang. He says it's only a matter of time until the financial system crashes again.

    There's one Caiman Islands Swiss banker who alerted his management about the criminals using the bank and the money laundering going on. They fired him. He then sent a CD off with all the evidence on to the Swiss tax authorities and he ended up being followed everywhere by black cars which really scared him. He says how some Swiss bankers working in the Caiman Islands have ended up dead. He eventually did two and a half years in prison, much of it in solitary confinement. He says he learnt the hard way how governments always protect their biggest earning companies.
