From our funniest writer, a portrait of our most talked-about royal. She made John Lennon blush and Marlon Brando clam up. She cold-shouldered Princess Diana and humiliated Elizabeth Taylor. Andy Warhol photographed her. Jack Nicholson offered her cocaine. Gore Vidal revered her. John Fowles hoped to keep her as his sex slave. Dudley Moore propositioned her. Francis Bacon heckled her. Peter Sellers was in love with her. For Pablo Picasso, she was the object of sexual fantasy.

A well written, insightful & most enjoyable book, I loved it. Exquisitely narrated, Eleanor Bron engages and entertains us throughout, bringing to life (with her beautifully observed characterisations), stories, anecdotes and reminiscences from the unique life of Princess Margaret and the many colourful people who featured in it. Highly recommended.
