But one veteran observer of royal af- f a i r s said Buckingham Palace and the Church used "thumbscrew techniques" to make Margaret call off that union. Hcports f r o m p a l a c e sources h a v e suggested that Lord Snowdon wanted a divorce but that Queen Elizabeth was reluctant to agree to any such move.
