The second film in this intimate portrait finds Princess Margaret and her husband Antony Armstrong-Jones at the start of their married life in the early 1960s. At home with celebrities and artists, they're riding the wave of a cultural and sexual revolution that's transforming Britain. The mystique of monarchy is being increasingly undermined by the emergence of a more open and egalitarian society.
