Sex, drugs and Princess Margaret [UK]

Sex, drugs and Princess Margaret
August 19, 2005 - dailymail.co.uk

Princess Margaret is to be portrayed as a promiscuous drug-user and drunk in a television drama.

The explicit Channel Four film, to be screened in November, shows the Queen's late sister performing a sex act on her husband before cheating on him with her lover Robin Douglas-Home.

In one shocking scene Margaret is depicted taking marijuana at a party and looking 'overly-emotional' at another 1960s bash where many of the revellers are obviously on LSD.

The ?2million film, entitled The Queen's Sister, also shows Margaret indulging in a lesbian kiss with 50s socialite Sharman Douglas.

While its makers insist it is a 'witty and irreverent royal romp', the drama has deeply angered friends and family of the princess, who died three years ago.

Lord St John of Fawsley, a friend for more than 50 years, described it as a 'desecration of her memory'.

'The princess was one of the most intelligent, beautiful, charming and fascinating women of her age,' he said.

'No one would ever say she led a blameless life - indeed she could give one quite a nip when she wanted to.

But that was all part of what made her such a wonderful, complex woman. 'There is simply

no need to portray her life in such an explicit way and I consider any attempt to do so a betrayal of her memory and an insult to the Queen.'

Her former lady-in-waiting, Lady Davinia Alexander, called on viewers to boycott the programme, saying: 'The production company has taken the life of a very dignified woman and despite the lack of any co-operation from her family and friends has turned it into a tawdry soap opera.'

A spokesman for production company Touchpaper, commissioned by Channel Four to make the drama, yesterday insisted that while 'not totally factual' it was, nevertheless, based on 'painstaking research'. In fact the film is believed to be largely based on a controversial biography by journalist Noel Botham.

In it the author claims Margaret had a passionate lesbian affair, was unfaithful to her husband and drank excessive amounts of whisky.

It also claims that after her frequent rows with Lord Snowdon, the couple would make love so furiously that she would bang her head on the wall of her bedroom in Kensington Palace.

The film is one of the 'highlights' of Channel Four's autumn season, launched yesterday.

Margaret is played by newcomer Lucy Cohu, whose biggest role until now was in ITV's Soldier Soldier. She said: 'Margaret was the Princess Diana of her day and people forget how incredibly glamorous she was.

Margaret had a lot of sex, but who doesn't? She was the first rock and roll princess and I connected with her energy and her insatiability for life.

'She was a woman trying to do the right thing at the right time, trying and failing and falling in love.'

The drama portrays Prince Philip, played by Shameless star David Threlfall, as a cynical bully.

In one scene he tells Snowdon - actor Toby Stephens - while the Royal Family's never-ending diary

of public engagements is tedious, 'there's always a bit of striking totty about'.

He adds: 'One cannot be blamed for seeing to one's own duty while the wife is seeing to hers.'

Other key figures in the late princess's life who make an appearance in the two-part drama are first love Peter Townsend, the divorced war hero she gave up for the sake of the monarchy, and her toyboy lover Roddy Llewellyn.

A source close the programme makers said: 'The drama is an account of Margaret's life through the 1950s, 60s and 70s when she was the most glamorous and highly publicised woman of her age.

'It documents the princess's life when she was running with this fast, attractive, sexy set, the likes of which had never been seen before.

'Yes, there is a lot of sex in it, but Margaret was a very sexual woman who was, in part, defined by her relationships with men, which was especially fascinating as she was part of such a repressive family.

'It is not a documentary, though, and there is a lot of invention.'

Last night Lord Snowdon, who has previously described the drama as 'outrageous and disrespectful' was unavailable for comment.

The princess's son, Lord Linley, declined to comment. But a friend said: 'He and his family are very upset.

'He doesn't want to give the programme the oxygen of publicity by commenting but feels very strongly that it is in extremely poor taste.'

The Brittish monarcy needs to let a little air out of their bag. They are a tired old relic from a dying age and, frankly, I'll never understand why the brittish people don't tell them all to get a real job instead of just being stuffy.
