Margaret visits Lord Blandford

December 12, 1948

British tongues are wagging today over news that Princess Margaret, 18, is spending the weekend at Blenheim Palace, the home of the Duke of Marlborough and his very eligible 22-year-old son, the Marquess of Blandford. Last night, the young marquess took the Princess to the theatre, where they saw the American musical "High Button Shoes."
It is entirely possible, say matchmakers, that an engagement between the young duke and the pretty princess will be announced before Margaret's 19th birthday in August.
