Normally, in the Official Order of Precedence the Sovereign's nephews (such as Viscount Linley) come ahead of the Sovereign's cousins (the Dukes of Gloucester and Kent), and the husband of the Sovereign's daughter isn't included at all. However, I would say the Duke of Gloucester and the Duke of Kent have been given preference over Viscount Linley as working members of the Royal Family who also have the style of Royal Highness and title of Princes.
Since no word has ever been given on the hierarchy in the Private Order of Precedence (or indeed, we don't even know it exists in the first place), this is all speculation on my part. The only indirect confirmation of an existence of such an Order comes from the fact that William and Harry often take precedence over their uncles (which shouldn't be the case in the Official Order, where the Sovereign's son take precedence over the Sovereign's grandsons).
