Princess Margaret with Pease Pottage maid

Further to picture #1556, pictured with Princess Margaret in the back of a limousine is Mrs Dorothy Palmer formerly of Hill Cottages at the bottom of Pease Pottage Hill. She was the princess's lady-in-waiting and dresser for many years, mainly for trips away from Kensington Palace.
Needless to say, it was not usual for my Aunt Doll to ride with the princess in the limousine, she would normally be following in a more modest car with one or two members of the Royal Protection Squad!

What a lovely photo!
I can remember Miss Dengate coming to our house on that Boxing Day to ask our aunt to take up the appointment. We obviously were not on the phone then!
