Spending most of her early life in Greece, the family was forced to flee during the Greek Royal Family’s frequent exiles in the 1920s, residing in Paris until the sisters married German Princes in quick succession after their mother was admitted into an asylum and their father went to live in the South of France. Princess Margarita married Gottfried, the 8th Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg in 1931, and the couple had five children, remaining happily married until his death in 1960, residing at Schloss Langenburg. She attended a plethora of royal events in Greece and Britain, where her sister-in-law was Queen, throughout her life, and was a godmother of the Princess Royal. Princess Margarita passed away on this day in 1981.
