Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon - The world's most eligible bachelor-girl

Time: 1950

Place: England, United Kingdom

Details: The press discussed "the world's most eligible bachelor-girl" and her alleged romances with more than 30 bachelors, including the Hon. Dominic Elliot, Colin Tennant (later Baron Glenconner), and future Prime Minister of Canada John Turner. Most had titles and almost all were wealthy. Her family reportedly hoped that she would marry Lord Dalkeith, but unlike him, the princess was uninterested in the outdoors. Billy Wallace, the sole heir to a £2.8 million (£74 million today) fortune and an old friend, was reportedly Margaret's favorite date during the mid-1950s.
