John Casey defends Princess Margaret:

“In some ways, she was like Diana, Princess of Wales before her time. She had a weakness for some fairly trashy society – but much less than Diana had.

Her private life was conducted with much more discretion than Diana’s; and she remained absolutely loyal to the Monarchy. What she lacked was Diana’s mass appeal and brilliant gifts of manipulation – especially of the press.”
