Princess Margaretha, Mrs. Ambler (Margaretha Désirée Victoria) (born 31 October 1934), was born at Haga Palace outside Stockholm. She is the first child of Prince Gustaf Adolf, Duke of Västerbotten, and Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and granddaughter of King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden and Princess Margaret of Connaught (aka Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden).


Life and marriage

Before her marriage she had a relationship with Robin Douglas-Home, a Scottish aristocrat. He asked her grandfather, King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden, for permission to marry her but he refused. Then he asked Princess Margaretha's mother, Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, for the same thing but she also refused.

She met her future husband at a dinner party in the United Kingdom in 1963. On 28 February 1964, Princess Margaretha's engagement was announced, to the British citizen, John Kenneth Ambler (Dorking, Surrey, 6 June 1924 – 31 May 2008), son of Charles Ambler and wife Louise Gwendolen Cullen. They were married on 30 June 1964, in Gärdslösa Church, Gärdslösa, on the isle of Öland. As a result of her unequal marriage, she lost her style of Royal Highness and became Princess Margaretha, Mrs. Ambler.

With her marriage, Princess Margaretha, Mrs. Ambler put an end to her life as a public person, as she moved to the United Kingdom. She lives an anonymous life and does not perform any official engagements on behalf of the Royal Family.

Princess Margaretha, Mrs. Ambler and her husband later separated, but never divorced.[1]
