When the time is up the Queen refuses to give her permission once again and adds, chillingly, that if Margaret does wed Townsend she will be cast out of the Royal family.
I found this rather hard to believe and Googled it.
It didn't take much research to ascertain that this never happened. The Queen did indeed maintain her refusal on advice from senior clerics, but she worked out a compromise with Prime Minister Anthony Eden, who is shown, inaccurately, as being opposed to the match. Margaret was told she could marry Townsend on the condition that she give up her right to the accession and that of any descendants.
A letter from Princess Margaret to Eden also emerged in 2009 showing that she was actually undecided after the two years about whether or not she still wanted to marry Townsend.
When the offer was made to her she decided not to.
Instead of telling the truth, the programme makers decided to reinforce the popular perception at the time that the authorities had forced Margaret apart from her ideal match, thereby ruining her life. It's quite clear they did this to give the episode and the first series a nice, dramatic end.
I find now that I can't watch the second series. I don't mind them messing around with details as long as the fundamentals are right, but this is not a trivial thing. I wouldn't want to follow the fortunes of a family that behaved like this towards their members and, in that spirit, I don't want to follow a series, however good, that sacrifices such major facts for the sake of drama.
There are a good variety of sub-plots - historical characters and events - and the plot is interspersed with flasbacks to earlier times and events - all to put things into context for the viewer.
It's all plausible though, to the average viewer with a reasonable knowledge of history and that's the main thing. I also ought to say the casting people have done quite well to make the actors/actresses look like the person they are playing - well done. I liked it well enough to go out and buy Season II !
