    Background: Staff at the home of Sir Harold and Lady Nitchell, near Ocho Rios, on the Jamaican north coast, say that they are busily preparing the 1,000 miles estate - "Prospect" - in the expectation that Princess Margaret and her husband, Mr. Antony Armstrong-Jones, will spend part of their Caribbean honeymoon there.

    "Prospect" is a mile and a quarter from a long stretch of sandy beach with a beach house ready for picnic parties. To get there, guests usually ride on the horse from the "Prospect" stables.

    The honeymoon couple would occupy a front bedroom suite overlooking the Caribbean. Our cameraman was told they were expected to arrive during the first week in June.

    Other distinguished guests there in recent years; Sir Winston Churchill, Sir Anthony Eden and the late Countess Mountbatten.
