Bet You Didn't Know Queen Elizabeth's Sister Was A Hard-Partying Princess

Princess Margaret was no stranger to controversy and scandal. The younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II played by her own rules, much to the chagrin of her royal relatives. In contrast to her quiet,proper sister, Margaret was outgoing and independent. Her romantic relationships, especially her potential marriage to Peter Townsend, garnered national attention and caused more than enough scandals for a single lifetime. 

Margaret loved to socialize, smoke and drink, and generally test boundaries - British intelligence agents may have even robbed a bank to save her reputation. Born into a life that wasn't really her own, Margaret rebelled and made the most of her position, having a lot of fun along the way.
