Meet Queen Elizabeth’s sister Princess Margaret

Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon was the only sibling of Queen Elizabeth II and the younger daughter of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

Princess Margaret was born on August 21, 1930, in Glamis Castle in Scotland, her mother’s ancestral home, and was known to the royal family as Margot.

Sir Henry Simson, the royal obstetrician, delivered her. J. R. Clynes, the Home Secretary, was present to witness the birth. Her birth was postponed for several days in order to avoid being numbered 13 in the parish register.

Her parents and older sister were her primary caregivers throughout her upbringing. She was just six years old when her uncle, King Edward VIII, abdicated to marry divorcee Wallis Simpson, and her life altered forever.

Margaret was second in line to the throne after her father, who had become king, and her sister, who had assumed the role of heir presumptive.

Over the years, when Elizabeth’s own children and grandchildren were born, her place in the line of succession dwindled.

There were calls to evacuate them from Windsor Castle during World War II, but the two sisters refused.

She was nine years old when war broke out and turned 15 just after hostilities ended, so she completed her education because she was deemed too young to serve in any official capacity throughout the war years.
