Princess Margaret’s love life will be the focus of a new two-part BBC documentary. The special, which will air later this year, will be a “deeply personal account” of a woman “whose life and loves reflected the social and sexual revolution that transformed Britain’s during the 20th century,” according to the broadcaster. Interviews with Lady Anne Glenconner, a childhood friend and later lady-in-waiting, and Basil Charles, the former owner of Basil’s Bar on Mustique, where the princess had a holiday home, will both feature. “She was a trailblazer, she was a little bit of a rebel. She wanted to have the [royal] life but she also wanted to have a normal life,” Charles explains in the upcoming show. It is this inner turmoil, which the BBC describes as “a rebellious force of modernity [combined with] a deep respect for tradition” that commanded the global audience of The Crown’s attention. From her scandalous relationship with Group Captain Peter Townsend, to her marriage to photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones in 1960.
