British Royalty. Born Princess Margaret Rose, the second daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York. Her uncle King Edward VIII abdicated the throne when Margaret was eight, and her father became King George VI. In 1957, she was made an Honorary Doctor of Music of London University and she became the first President of the Royal Ballet. Margaret married photographer, Anthony Armstrong-Jones In 1960. Her husband was created Earl of Snowdon. They had two children, David Albert Charles, Viscount Linley and Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones. When the marriage fell apart in 1978, the BBC reported Margaret was the first member of the royal family to divorce since Henry VIII. Princess Margaret received Honorary Doctorates from the Universities of Cambridge and Keele, and was a Master of the Bench of Lincoln's Inn. She was also Colonel-in-Chief of a number of military units and was an Honorary Air Commodore. Princess Margaret was appointed Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order in 1955. She was given the Royal Victorian Chain by The Queen in 1990. She was Dame Grand Cross of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem and held orders and decorations from The Netherlands, Zanzibar, Belgium, Uganda and Japan. Margaret suffered a mild stroke in 1998. Later that same year she severely scalded her feet in an accident affecting her mobility to the extent that she often required support when walking and was sometimes restricted to a wheelchair. In 2000 and 2001 she suffered further strokes. Another stroke in February 2002 was the final blow to her fragile health and Princess Margaret died in The King Edward VII Hospital, London with her children at her side. The funeral of HRH The Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon took place on February 15, in St George's Chapel, Windsor. After the funeral service, the Princess' body was cremated at Slough Crematorium. The casket now rests in the George VI Chapel, St George's Chapel, Windsor, near her parents. (bio by: Iola)
