Princess Mar­garet ex­posed!

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS - By Chris Hast­ings

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.
