Quotes

Tommy Lascelles: I hope Your Majesty understands the context in which this discreet reconnaissance work was done and that it in no way represents a prurient, moralistic or censorious position.

Margaret Redux
21 December 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

While it is sad to see the struggles of the other royal daughter, her choices make her seem a bit pathetic. Anthony Armstrong-Jones is a womanizer and a sad figure on his own. He is very handsome and is trying to make an impression on his mother. While he bides his troth to Margaret, he is involved with other women, one of them pregnant. Elizabeth is aware of this and there is a edgy confrontation between them. Also, Margaret wants to announce her engagement, but Elizabeth is pregnant and she gets top billing for the time being. At times I got tired of the extended lovemaking scenes. I must be getting old.
