Little Girl Lost
on 18 February 2016
The Royal Princess, Margaret, and her life is told in film, following her from a young woman whose father, the King just died to 20 years in the future. Margaret was always following her famous sister, and she always had a complex. Margaret's financial assets were controlled by the Queen. The Queen rarely talked to her,all messages were given in person by Prince Phillip.
Margaret as a young woman fell in love with pilot, Peter Townsend, however he had been married previously, and this was not acceptable to the Church of England. If Margaret married outside of the church, she would be cut off from the palace, and all financial resources would be cut off. Margaret knew what she had to do. A few years later, Margaret met photographer, Antony Armstrong Jones. Tony had no idea what he was getting into. The marriage was accepted by the Royals, but after a couple of years with both sides having affairs, a divorce was granted. Margaret then went on to wild parties, escapades and alcohol and drugs. Tony and Margaret had two children, and their lives must have been difficult.
Margaret had a difficult life, but she had all the money she needed. What she did not have was a goal in life, something to do with her time. She was listless, and went out at night to clubs and events. It is sad, considering what she could have done with her life. The actress Lucy Cohu does an admirable job as Margaret, aging 20'years, make-up is very well done. The other actors were superb, particularly Prince Phillip. A sad story, little girl lost.
