Episode 4: Annus Horribilis
In a speech celebrating her 40th year on the throne at the end of 1992, the Queen recounts that her year has been an 'Annus Horribilis', an accurate description for the year in which she saw three of her four children separate or divorce and Windsor Castle suffer a devastating fire. But her more private pain is the accusation by her sister that she is responsible for Margaret’s lifetime of unhappiness by refusing to allow her to marry Peter Townsend.
In this episode, Edith Bowman talks with Director May el-Toukhy, Head of Research Annie Sulzberger, and the actor playing the character of Princess Margaret, Lesley Manville.
The Crown: The Official Podcast is produced by Netflix and Somethin’ Else, in association with Left Bank Pictures.
