SYNOPSIS: Behind the Headlines. Beyond the Scandal. Meet the real Princess Margaret, sister to Queen Elizabeth, and member of the modern world's most glamorous royal family. Her life should have been an opulent fairy tale. Instead, from London's exclusive discos where she is known simply as "Yvonne," to her troubled home life with Lord Snowdon at Kensington Palace, she has been haunted by notoriety and gossip. Margaret: The Tragic Princess unveils, for the first time, the life known previously only in headlines: her transformation from impish and pampered child to madcap playgirl, her reign as star of the glittering social whirl of post-war London, her heartbroken renunciation of Peter Townsend, the lover she rejected out of "royal duty," and most startling of all, the cruel secret legacy - "the Hanoverian curse" - that has crippled her private and public life. And has made her a woman of rare courage. - and - TRAGIC PRINCESS, GALLANT WOMAN When King Edward renounced his crown to marry Wallace Simpson, the scandal rocked England, King George took the throne, and his daughters were thrust into the limelight forever. Suddenly, Princess Margaret, the attention-loving little girl, was destined to spend her life one step behind her sister, England's future Queen, Elizabeth. British biographer James Brough's sympathetic portrayal takes the reader into the plush apartments of Kensington Palace, where the glamorous life of royalty and riches contains ironic twists. Here is a real twentieth-century princess, her heartbreaking love affair with dashing Peter Townsend, her tumultuous marriage to Lord Snowdon, her expensive pursuit of pleasure throughout the world, and the never-before revealed medical secret that casts her life in a courageous new light.
