Princess Margaret's 'simple' tastes

Princess Margaret was one of the most glamorous figures on the world stage in the 1950s, but documents have released she had some modest tastes when it came to food and drink. Ahead of a visit to Mauritius, the island's governor was told that she preferred "simple" meals, was "not fond of either caviar or oysters", and would rather drink wine than champagne. But that did not mean planning Margaret's tour of the island in 1956 was straightforward.
