Princess Margaret announced her engagement to Antony Armstrong-Jones from Royal Lodge, Windsor on this day in 1960. Called the ‘best kept secret in Britain’, the announcement came just weeks after the birth of Prince Andrew. The couple got married that May, and had two children before divorcing in 1978.  Princess Margaret passed away in 2002, while Lord Snowdon died last year.
