The extraordinary story behind A Very British Scandal, starring Claire Foy and Paul Bettany.

Margaret was debutante of the year, the beautiful fairy-tale heiress immortalised in Cole Porter's 'You're The Tops' - who ended up penniless and ostracised by her own family.

Legal actions coloured her life- her divorce from the Duke of Argyll was one of the longest, costliest and most notorious in British legal history. Her diaries, and photographs of her with a 'headless' naked man, were used in evidence.

This sparkling biography draws on exclusive interviews with the late Duchess to lift the lid off her past, and her scandalous lifestyle. The Duchess Who Dared is a fascinating chronicle of a complex, charming and determined woman.
