I know at one point Serena wanted to embark on creating and selling sculptures. Did that ever happen?

While cleaning up some magazines I had lying around my house, I came across a June 2005 issue of House Beautiful, an American magazine on home decor and design. David Linley was chosen as one of the "Giants of Design" along with architect Daniel Libeskind, interior designer Barbara Barry, industrial designer Karim Rashid (better known for his Umbra designs), and retailer Gordon Segal.

David looks like a good mix between both of his parents. On the cover especially you can see quite a resemblance to Princess Margrethe -- something in the jawline or the eyes perhaps.

Viscount Linley is profiled in the November 2005 issue of British House & Garden. He celebrates his 20th anniversary as a craftsperson.

The article notes that he is more recognized for his furniture than as the Queen's nephew!

I think the selling of the cards was in very poor taste and also wondered what P Margaret thought about the sale of her home in Mustique. I still have an issue of "House Beautiful" which features David and Serena showing the personal touches they'd made to the home, including pictures they'd painted together. But I do admire him for his work--which I suspect is well worth the price as I think he has very high standards--and the fact he is not best known as QE's nephew.

BTW, I understood the Kennedy sale at Sotheby's years ago and that it was done at Jacqueline Kennedy's behest. I was surprised yet another sale was held last year of additional artifacts and items from the Kennedy years. It's likely because--according to many who knew her--Mrs. Kennedy saved everything and had warehouses of furniture, china, jewelry and items with little personal signficance. I never heard how much the second sale earned though. Certainly not nearly as much as the first.

a little dirt on Linley from the New York Post.

http://www.nypost.com/gossip/58104.htm

November 29, 2005 -- EXPECT the inside scoop on the battle between antique aficionado Bruce Newman and David, Viscount Linley, in Newman's memoir, "Don't Come Back Until You Find It," due out in January. The original dust-up began with charges that Linley's 1996 book, "Extraordinary Furniture," was a copy of an earlier Newman work and had British papers calling him "Copycat Linley."

Are there any pictures of HON. Charles Armstrong-Jones and HON. Margarita Armstrong-Jones? We're they in the video of the royal family in the Queen's speech for Christmas 2004?

Viscountess Linley is such an elegant royal lady. Too bad the children of the late Princess Margaret do not undertake many royal engagements unlike with the children of the Queen. But what I like with their lives is that they remain down-to-earth and approachable. They seem to look like very friendly people.

But wasn't Diana known as Lady Diana Spencer when she married Prince Charles? And, her father was an Earl already and her brother Charles is now the Earl of Althorp.

Where did Elspeth say Diana wasn't Lady Diana? She said that while Diana's father was Viscount Althorp, meaning before he inherited in the mid-70s, Diana was an Hon.

They have a home in France for weekends, and have a place in London, where their son attends school, and another place in the country for weekends.

I would bet on Margaret presenting or giving those momentos that both she and her family, such as the Queen, during her final days and leaving them out of the will. I know my grandfather cleaned out his basement for just that reason and kept the monetary and real estate issues for the will.

Hi, first-time poster here!

I know someone else has already explained about Diana's title changing when her grandfather died, but I also thought I'd mention that Diana's brother's present title is "Earl Spencer," not "Earl of Althorp." (Before his father died he was Viscount Althrop.)

Does anyone know what the distinction is between someone who is "Earl of Something" (like Earl of Wessex) and "Earl Something" (like Earl Spencer)? I know there is a difference, but I can't remember what it means.

Thanks,
kal
