Two words… Princess Margaret.
It turns out Princess Margaret is everything we’ve ever wanted in a royal and more.
While she was a bit of an enigma when she was alive, we’ve since learnt to love the younger sister of the Queen and her, well, goddamn hilarious ways.
Vanessa Kirby’s portrayal of the Princess in The Crown has shown us that while her life was tragic, it was never boring… because she would not have it that way.
She was the original sassy diva, kind of like if Paris Hilton and Mariah Carey had a child and that child lived in a castle and only ever consumed vodka… and then told everyone what she really thought about them.

So great are her burns, they’ve become part of the royal family folklore.
To give you a lil’ chuckle, here’s a comprehensive list of Princess Margaret’s greatest zingers:
That time she snubbed Twiggy
One of the most Princess Margaret-y moments of all the Princess Margaret-y moments was that time she snubbed 60s supermodel, Twiggy, at a party.
As the story goes, the Princess was seated next to Twiggy at a dinner party, she ignored her for two hours before turning to her and asking, “And who are you?”.
Twiggy replied, “I’m Lesley Hornby, ma’am, but people call me Twiggy”.
Margaret responded, “How unfortunate,” and turned away again.
That time she met Elizabeth Taylor
While on a tour of the United States in 1965, Princess Margaret was introduced to Elizabeth Taylor.
Let’s just say it didn’t go well.
