From Duke of Clarence to Margaret, the blackmailers' royal victims



"An ITV documentary claimed the princess and Lord Snowdon were the subject of a blackmail attempt.

"The alleged culprit was Russian spy Eugene Ivanov, who helped bring down the British government in 1963 when it was revealed that he and the Secretary of State for War, John Profumo, were both sleeping with prostitute Christine Keeler.

"Margaret and Snowdon were supposedly guests at sex parties organised by Keeler's pimp and friend, Stephen Ward - and apparently had been photographed in compromising positions.

"The documentary alleged that when these snaps reached Russia, via Ivanov, the princess and her husband became the target of an attempted blackmail by the KGB." - From Duke of Clarence to Margaret, the blackmailers' royal victims
