Princess Margaret exposed!
DANCING around in only her underwear, she is the epitome of the carefree party girl.
This is Princess Margaret as she appears in the hotly awaited second series of The Crown. Broadcast next month, this series covers the late 1950s and 1960s and will include the princess’s relationship with handsome high-society photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones, whom she later married.
Written by Peter Morgan, the drama will show Margaret (Vanessa Kirby) and Armstrong-Jones, played by Downton Abbey star Matthew Goode, embarking on secret trysts on the back of a motorbike.
The programme will depict the late princess as a hedonistic young woman.
It will show her declaring: ‘I know who I am; a woman for the modern age. I am free to love, to live and to break away.’
Royal biographer Margaret Holder said: ‘She was a young woman having to hide a somewhat racy nature under an outward show of respectability that was expected in that era.’
In the second series of The Crown, screened on Netflix, the queen, played by Claire Foy, has to deal with the ‘restlessness’ of her husband Philip, with some reports claiming that the new series will show him cheating on her.
