I never understood why Margaret was a bit mean?

She was not allowed to marry the man she loved unless she gave up the only life she'd ever known as well as all the perks she absolutely enjoyed. I would say that was one of her main reasons for being mean and probably bitter. Worst part was, it was her sister who told her this.
In my opinion, I rather pick true love(soulmate) than having perks. What perks anyways?

Agreed. A case of "I love you, but just not quite enough". Maybe she looked at her Uncle David's loss of status and decided that it wasn't for her.  In the end it was her choice, no one locked her in a tower.

Money, status, a home in KP. She was not going to be an Army or civil service wife in a country house with nothing happening. She wanted the clubs, jewels, appearances, and importance (well self importance). Unfortunately for her no son of a Duke was going to marry her with her "past" so she settled . . .

ITA CathyJane. There were reports that also suggested the relationship between HM and Margaret was further strained when Margaret told HM about PP's affair with a confidante of HM's. Margaret apparently did this in retaliation over the Townsend situation. HM apparently proceeded to shoot the messenger.

Karma is a bitch. I think Charles marrying Camilla is worse than Margaret wanting to marry Townsend.
She should've been more empathic, Margaret was not the heir and obviously her importance was going to fade.

Different times - but Hazzard marrying Imelda is much the same and likely to end the same wway

Harry&Meg are a bonus from karma, they'll be sidelined anyway.
Charles, on the other hand checked all the wrong boxes. Too bad Margaret didn't live to witness his wedding. Or maybe it's better she didn't, I know I would be furious.

She had to choose-family history/lineage/perks or love, she choose the first.
Edward choose Wallis , she resented him , rich from a twice divorced probable Nazi  spy, according to FBI declassifieds.
Edward was a wimp, Margaret a hedonist. She wouldn't end on the patch, a military base in poverty if she choose love. She really wasn't marriage material by the standards of her time. The loove thing is often a excuse in their circles for failing at basics of life.
Personal accountability,introspection, a foreign concept.

All the perks it seems glittery from the outside but probably will get old fast.

She suffered what Harry is suffering now. Inferiority complex.

In her case "relevance deprivation" if she was forced to accept the terms.

In Handbag's case it is both - while it was his brother and sister in law and him fronting up to things then he was "equalish" as the son of Charles. But since he married there is a distinction between Couple A and Couple B. The B Team will do the Commonwealth wave holitours for the next however many years, the A Team will go to State occasions and be invited to Euro royal occasions. Wife A will wear a broader range of jewels, Wife B will probably be restricted to her wedding tiara until Charles is King.

Margaret did not have enough sense to conduct her affairs behind closed doors - if she had then "appearances" would have been maintained. Harry - being nowhere near the "throne" was free to marry who he chose. Times have changed. But if he was 2nd in line then I doubt Meg would have been seen to be OK within the time frame - he would have had to wait longer. He no doubt had support from his father at the time - ie "marrying suitable does not mean it will work" and "daddy married a divorced woman who is now accepted"

It seems to me choosing the perks and status wasn't really worth it.
