A third date for Princess Margaret

December 11, 1953

Princess Margaret and her widowed aunt, the Duchess of Kent, went to see a play tonight and then dinner, reports the Associated Press.  Queen Elizabeth's younger sister was with Mark Bonham Carter, "active in London society," and the Duchess was escorted by Philip Hay, her private secretary.

This was Bonham Carter's third date "in as many nights" with Margaret.  Last night, they were at the ballet at Sadler's Wells, and the night before, they attended a Boy Scout benefit show."
