Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon - Birth

Time: Thursday Aug 21, 1930

Place: Glamis Castle, Angus, Scotland, United Kingdom

Details: Margaret was born on 21 August 1930 at Glamis Castle in Scotland, her mother's ancestral home, and was affectionately known as Margot within the royal family. She was delivered by Sir Henry Simson, the royal obstetrician. The Home Secretary, J. R. Clynes, was present to verify the birth. The registration of her birth was delayed for several days to avoid her being numbered 13 in the parish register.
