October 22, 1955
Princess Margaret "left late today" to spend the weekend at Windsor Castle, which her sister and brother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, reports the New York Times. Earlier today, Group Captain Peter Townsend paid a two-hour visit to the Princess at Clarence House, where she lives with the Queen Mother. The Queen Mother is spending the weekend with her brother, the Hon. David Bowes-Lyon, at his home in Hertfordshire.
Many believe that Princess Margaret wants to marry Group Captain Townsend, a divorced man with two sons. But a proposed match might stir too much controversy among leaders of church and state.
Townsend will not be joining the princess at Windsor.
