Following the death of her father George VI princess Margaret hopes to marry the war hero Peter Townsend but is told that if she does she will be cut out of the Civil List and receive no money. Throughout her life she is criticized by the anti-Royalist MP Willie Hamilton. She pursues a hedonistic life-style more suited to a wealthy upper class woman than a royal but in 1960 she meets and marries the photographer Anthony Armstrong-Jones and they have two children. However Margaret's insistence on being a party girl puts a strain on the marriage and they drift apart, each having affairs. Depressed when one of her lovers Robin Douglas-Home kills himself Margaret finds unexpected solace with the much younger Roddy Llewellyn, an aspiring singer who lives on a commune and whop shelters her from publicity. However they are snapped kissing and are emblazoned across the gutter press. For Armstrong-Jones and the royal family this is the final straw. Margaret is last seen on the Caribbean island of Mustique where she had honeymooned but now she is alone.
An in-depth biopic of Princess Margaret from the days following her father's death in 1952 until the 1970s. She was known to be a flamboyant royal but she remained a stickler for protocol.

Also the film gives some focus on what others thought of Margaret, from normal people of the era to a backbench MP opposed to her 1961 wedding.
