EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Princess Margaret’s older lover encouraged romance when she was a teenager ‘which he shouldn’t have done’, says her former lady-in-waiting

Their tumultuous romance ended in heartbreak, but Princess Margaret’s relationship with Group Captain Peter Townsend, whom she considered the love of her life, was put into a slightly worrying perspective by her lady-in-waiting for 30 years.

Lady Anne Glenconner’s verdict on Townsend is not flattering, even though he won three medals as a fighter pilot before being appointed equerry to George VI in 1944. Townsend, who died in 1995, recalled at the time of her appointment that Margaret was “as unremarkable as one would expect of a 14-year-old girl”.

But Lady Anne, 91, says Queen Elizabeth II’s sister remembers it differently.

“I actually asked him about it once. He was a war hero, very attractive. She was very, very young. She was only 15 (sic) when he arrived and he was a married man. I think he encouraged her, which he shouldn’t have done.

When asked on today’s Rosebud podcast if she thought Townsend, 15 years Margaret’s senior, was taking advantage of his closeness to her, Lady Anne said yes. “It’s not something that’s been emphasized a lot, but I completely agree,” she adds.

Townsend’s first marriage, to Rosie Pawle, by whom he had two sons, began to deteriorate. They divorced in 1952. He and Margaret then discovered that his divorced status eliminated any chance of marriage.

He wrote his memoirs, but Rosie, who died in 2004, refrained from doing so. “He was offered, as you can imagine, up to £500,000 to make up all the stories,” his son from his second marriage, Piers de Laszlo, tells me. “She never did it once, which was really good of her.”

Lord Ivar Mountbatten, the first member of the royal family to have a same-sex marriage, combined business with pleasure.

The TV personality, 60, and her husband James Coyle, are giving talks on a two-week cruise to Polynesia organized by a company that is “reinventing LGBT+ holidays”. Lord Ivar, first cousin, once removed, of Prince Philip and third cousin, once removed, of Queen Elizabeth, says: “Being stuck on a boat with 250 gays might be your idea of hell, but, truth be told, it’s a lot of fun – and they sure know how to party. I think another vacation might be needed to get over this one.

Director Paul Feig warned that the actors' strike

Director Paul Feig warned that the actors’ strike “must be resolved” or “Hollywood will soon no longer exist.”

Hollywood director Paul Feig, whose hit comedies include Bridesmaids and the 2016 Ghostbusters remake, says the actors’ strike is no laughing matter.

“This problem has to be solved, and everyone has to come around the table to find a solution, otherwise Hollywood will soon no longer exist,” he told me during the House of Flamenka gala evening at the Peacock Theater in London’s West End. In the United States, actors remain on picket lines due to disputes with film studios over salaries and the use of AI. The 61-year-old director adds: “I worry about the teams because they are the ones I count on.

“I also count on the actors and the writers, but what worries me the most are the teams, because what are they supposed to do in the meantime?”

Today, a beautiful young woman has come forward to claim the shoe.

She was invited to the party at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen to represent the neighborhood where she lives outside the Danish capital. “I won the invitation in a raffle,” she told me.

It remains to be seen whether Christian will return the shoe in person to Anne-Sofie, who nevertheless has one thing in common with our queen: her father is a wine merchant, just like Camilla’s.

But now the 88-year-old photojournalist reveals that long days in tropical climates almost cost him his eyesight. McCullin, about whom Angelina Jolie is set to make a film with Tom Hardy, discovered that the itching under his eyes was skin cancer.

“I had to have an operation, otherwise I would have lost my sight,” he told me. “I had a growth removed and 50 stitches under my left eye and a few under my right eye.
