12. Princess Margaret – Doting After A Married Man

Princess Margaret spent a lot of time with Captain Peter Townsend and eventually, the two were madly in love; sadly, the Captain was married.

1953 brought a huge change of events when Captain Townsend divorced his wife and soon after, proposed to Princess Margaret.

The engagement was quite the scandal, but unfortunately, the couple broke it off knowing that it wouldn’t be easy sailing for them if they did get married.

In 1960 she married Antony Armstrong-Jones after learning that the Captain intended to marry another woman.
