Nigel Dempster,doyen of the gossip columnists,reveals the true Princess Margaret - her life,her loves and her sorrows.Princess Margaret is the most controversial - and therefore the most intriguing - member of the Royal Family.Loved for her beauty and wit,criticized for her widely-publicized emotional entanglements,she has lived her entire life in the shadow of her elder sister.But whatever she has done has attracted attention and caught the public imagination - her agony over the enforced loss of her first love,Peter Townsend;her 'bohemian' adventures in London's glamorous night-clubs in the fifties; her fairy-tale wedding in Westminster Abbey; the distressing break-up of her marriage; and her sun-drenched holidays on the romantic island of Mustique. Dempster has long chronicled the career of Princess Margaret and her circle.In his book he discloses the background to her eventful life and the true nature of this gracious and remarkable woman.
