My most sincere condolences to Her Majesty and the Royal Family on the passing of HRH Princess Margaret.

HRH the late Princess Margaret will be fondly remembered by British and Commonwealth subjects for her efforts in society. HRH was the youngest daughter of His Majesty the late King George VI and the Queen Mother. She was born on 21 August 1930 at Glamis, Scotland.

The Princess was actively involved in many areas during her lifetime. HRH was especially concerned for the arts, and went to great lengths to cultivate and promote the arts in Great Britain, the Empire and the Commonwealth.

HRH was a glamourous woman well liked by many. She was active in many social circles, and many people had the opportunity to meet and interact with her during her lifetime.

HRH was also extremely active in charities such as the Guide Association, of which she was a member of since the age of seven. A Patron of many different organisations, she involved herself whole heartedly in fund raising for these different organisations.

HRH's personal life was unfortunately not as glittery. She first fell in love with a divorced man, Peter Townsend, but public pressure meant that they could not be together. Later, she married Anthony Armstrong-Jones, but this union ended later in divorce.

HRH the Princess Margaret shall be long remembered by all of British and Commonwealth subjects.

This comes just two days after the fiftieth anniversary of the death of her father, King George VI, who died at the age of 56. Ironically, both father and daughter were chain-smokers, and Margaret did not quit until 1993. George VI died of a cause directly related to lung cancer, while smoking no doubt played a significant role in Princess Margaret's untimely demise.

Anyway, my condolences to HM Queen Elizabeth, and HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. I can't imagine what it must be like to outlive one's youngest daughter!

Anyone who wishes to send a condolence online can do so at http://www.royal.gov.uk. HRH Princess Margaret shall be dearly missed by all of us. I just thought I'd share a lovely story about the Princess that I'd read today in The Straits Times.

"When Margaret and Elizabeth were born, their father was the Duke of York, second son of the king.

The abdication of their uncle - King Edward - to marry a divorcee, thrust their father on to the throne and set Elizabeth on the path to monarchy.

Margaret, 6, told her sister: 'Does that mean you're going to be queen? Poor you.' "

Charming......yes, such a shame about her failed love affair with the 'commoner'........why didn't she marry him?

BTW, couldn't help noticing Charles's wry smile on that video, when he mentioned his aunt's 'very elegant cigarette holder.'  Laugh out loud

Charles comes across as a charming man, I think he's been making real efforts to change people's perceptions of the Royals-his mum and dad make it quite hard though!

Peter Townsend? He was divorced, this was the 1950's remember.
Apparently Margaret was a party animal in her day, hanging out with the art crowd, later to include Mick Jagger!
Though, so the story goes, she did turn down a joint when it was offered to her at a party in the late 1960's!
Had a rough time towards the end, poor woman.

The was a very nice tribute to her in the Orange Country Register today.
A Native Brit, who was having a drink and a smoke at the British Pub in Garden Grove said 'I was very sad to hear she died. She was a personal role model to me; She drunk like a fish, and smoked like a Chimney.'
