Recently I have read the memoires of Anne Veronica Tennant, Baroness Glenconner (in English), a very interesting read with a nice view of Princess Margaret.



https://en.wikipedia.org/...nant,_Baroness_Glenconner

I found this book really interesting but less for the royal content and more for her generally colorful life (the Baroness, not Princess Margaret). A very entertaining read for people looking for royal-adjacent books. I particularly loved the descriptions of her come out season because it captured the glitz and the glam of a bygone era.

Indeed, IMO the story of the baroness was more interesting than that of Margaret. She had a colorful but also sad live (how her husband behaved, and the fate of her children)

Isnít she the nasty piece of work who ratted on the Queen for Harry and Gayle king?

You can see the tension, especially with her. Didnít they separate soon after?

Lady Glenconner is one of the Queen's friends. She wouldn't have spoken to anyone without the Queen's approval ... in the same way that other family and friends speak about the Queen. The show Gayle King did was supposed to be an 'expose' on the Queen but the reality was it simply rehashed what has already been known and Lady Glenconner simply repeated what she has said in other interviews. In other words she said what she knew the Queen approved her saying.

Everyone looked older back then. Plus she was a heavy drinker and smoke.
I love the book by Lady Glenconnor. Lots of good tidbits about the royals but very circumspect

Queenís dressmakerís private documents and scrapbooks detailing furore over Princess Margaretís wedding dress are up for sale

It seems Mr. Hartnell took out cancellation insurance on Margaret's wedding and the discovery of it caused a major flap.

The private papers and scrapbooks are up for auction next month.
