Roddy Llewellyn Biography
Birthday: October 9, 1947 (Libra)
Born In: Crickhowell, Brecknockshire, Wales
Roddy Llewellyn is an English peer and gardening expert who in his youth became famous for his relationship with Princess Margaret, sister of Queen Elizabeth II. While most people know him because of his association with Princess Margaret, Llewellyn’s identity as one of England’s most experienced gardeners is usually forgotten. Born into a privileged and wealthy family in England, gardening became an important part of his life early on. His father was an Olympic show-jumping champion and so his parents were often away attending sports events. It was his nanny who raised him and introduced him to gardening. The joy of spreading seeds on soil and watching them grow never left him since. When he was in his early twenties, he met Princess Margaret. Despite the age difference, the two of them were drawn to each other. Their relationship became regular fodder for the rags. After it ended Llewellyn and Margaret remained friends. Llewellyn by then had turned his love of gardening into a career. He became a successful landscape gardener, a gardening columnist and a TV presenter. These days he runs his gardening firm and gives lectures on gardening.
