Tongues wag as Margaret visits Blenheim

December 12, 1952

Is there an engagement in the offing?  This is what matchmakers and bookie are thinking as Princess Margaret spent the weekend at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough.

The Associated Press reported that the Duke's 22-year-old son, the Marquess of Blandford "squired the princess" to Oxford where they saw the American musical,  High Button Shoes."

Many now expect that Princess Margaret's engagement to Lord Blandford will be announced shortly before her 19th birthday next August.
