Princess Margaret is not like other Royals. She has always broken free from the conventions that others have imposed on her, and has lived a life that has to some seemed scandalous, to others liberating. It was Princess Margaret had an illicit love affair with jazz musician Robin Douglas-Home, and letters from that secret relationship are reprinted in this book. When Douglas-Hume was rejected by Margaret, he killed himself, and was replaced by another lover. Noel Botham paints a portrait of the most exotic and secretive member of the Royals.
