Madame Alexander did the gowns of the Princess Margaret Rose Bridesmaids in different colors — shades of pink and blue are more familiar. This is a lovely buttercup yellow organdy with pink taffeta underneath. The affect has an iridescent feature to it that's both romantic and unexpected. The soft pink roses in the dolls hair, dress and bouquet all reinforce this feature. This c. 1953 doll touches on both the perennial favorite theme of the wedding party, but also the British royal family. Princess Margaret herself would have been about 22, and becoming a huge celebrity on her own by now. Her early relationship with Peter Townsend (just divorced and older man) would just now becoming headline news, giving Margaret both the status of royal princess but a media celebrity. When her sister, now Queen Elizabeth, had to deny permission to marry Peter Townsend, Princess Margaret became an international icon for tragic young love.
