Season 2 of the Netflix series "The Crown" dramatized how Princess Margaret, the Queen's willful younger sister, handled the heartbreak of her thwarted romance with Captain Peter Townsend. By episode 7, Margaret had bounced back as a beaming bride at Westminster Abbey, capturing the world's attention by exchanging televised vows with the dashing, but darkly secretive photographer Antony Amstrong-Jones (later given the title Earl of Snowdon by the Queen). What will season 3 have in store for Margaret? Producers have been mum so far, but with Helena Bonham-Carter now cast in the role, we can only imagine there's more drama on the horizon. Here, a look at the highs and lows of the real-life Princess Margaret's marriage, which may very well serve as material for the show.
