Princess Margaret, the Queen’s junior sister, died on Saturday. As the press reported, the princess died at night, while sleeping. Princess Margaret died at the age of 71.
The princess was suffering from several serious illnesses for many years, and they were progressing during the last couple of years. As the doctors said, Margater’s habit of smoking too much was the reason for the development of the diseases.
The Queen Mother, who is 101 years old, expressed her wish to be present at the funeral of her daughter. The doctors are against it, claiming the long duration of the ceremony, as well as the sad fact as it is, will exert the negative influence on the Queen Mother, who has not yet recovered from the cold she caught during the Christmas time. The funeral will take place on Friday, February 15, at St. George’s Chapel.
