Emmys 2018: Vanessa Kirby gets hair and makeup done

Vanessa Kirby is being praised for one of her latest roles in Netflix film Pieces of A Woman which is about a heartbreaking home birth. However, most subscribers will probably know her best for portraying Princess Margaret in the first two series of The Crown. Sadly as fans know, Margaret didn’t exactly have the best of luck when it came to men.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from The Crown.

As depicted in The Crown, Princess Margaret’s first public relationship was with Captain Peter Townsend (played by Ben Miles).

He was married when he met Margaret but even when he did get divorced, the royal family didn’t want them together because of his previous marital status as well as the fact he was 20 years older than her.

The royals sent him away to work as an air attaché for the British Embassy in Brussels which led to their split.

Instead, Margaret went on to marry Tony Armstrong-Jones, better known as Lord Snowdon (Matthew Goode).

They reportedly had a very fiery relationship and ended up getting divorced in 1978.
