Princess Margaretha, Mrs. Ambler, (Margaretha Désirée Victoria; born 31 October 1934) is a Swedish princess, the eldest sister of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and also first cousin of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. In the 1950s Princess Margaretha had a relationship with Robin Douglas-Home, a Scottish aristocrat and the nephew of the future British Prime Minister Alec Douglas-Home. He came to visit her in Sweden, but they never married. There was speculation in the press that this was due to Princess Sibylla forbidding the match,[2] but Princess Margaretha's nanny and confidante Ingrid Björnberg states categorically in her memoirs that the breakup between the two was caused by Princess Margaretha's reluctance to enter into an engagement with Douglas-Home.[3] She met her future husband, the ten years older businessman John Ambler, at a dinner party in the United Kingdom in 1963 and their engagement was announced on 28 February 1964. They were married on 30 June 1964, in Gärdslösa Church, Gärdslösa, on the isle of Öland. The Princess wore a wedding gown from the Stockholm couture school, Märtaskolan, where she had previously been a student, and a traditional wedding crown from Oland.[4] The couple settled at Chippinghurst Manor in Oxfordshire. As a result of her unequal marriage, she lost her style of Royal Highness and the King gave her the courtesy title of Princess Margaretha, Mrs. Ambler. Under the Swedish constitution of that time, she, as a woman, and her descendants were not eligible to inherit the throne. Thus they still are not. Princess Margaretha and her husband separated in 1994,[5] but never divorced.[6] He died on 31 May 2008. Princess Margaretha and John Ambler's marriage has produced three children: Sibylla Louise Ambler (b. London, 14 April 1965), named after her maternal grandmother, Princess Sibylla. She married Baron Henning von Dincklage (b. Esslingen am Neckar, 29 April 1971). The couple lives in Munich. They have two children, of whom Madeleine Charlotte Margaretha von Dincklage is the goddaughter of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and was a bridesmaid at her wedding. Charles Edward Ambler (b. London, 14 July 1966); he married Helen Jane Ross (b. Huddersfield, 3 March 1969). They have two daughters. James Patrick Ambler (b. Oxford, 10 June 1967); he married Ursula Mary Shipley (b. St Austell, 9 July 1965). They have two children.
