I don't know if it has been mentioned before on the forums, but David's firm Linley's website davidlinley.com is very appealing. His products are so sleek and crisp and elegant.

He's really carved out (get it? Woodworking? CARVED? LOL) a niche for himself.

I love the mice!

pricey, well designed, elegant things at David Linley. The Cambridges have that wonderful Linley desk in their home in KP. https://goo.gl/images/V4KQgz It's the Horse Guards Parade Desk.

I do think that he has demonstrated a genuine talent for design whereas his royal connections recede in importance to his business. He is certainly a Messel in spirit.

Beautiful family. Margarita has grown to such a pretty, young lady. How wonderful would it be if Princess Margaret were alive today to bond with her only granddaughter? One could imagine the fun they would have together. David is such a talented designer. I love the tiara he made for his wife.

I really like the Snowdons, thank you iceflower for sharing these photos. Margarita is indeed blossoming into a very pretty young lady, I think she will look a lot like her mother, with a small mixture of Princess Margaret. I like the photo of her and Serena from the Getty gallery in particular.

Thanks for the updates !
The Snowdons are a beautiful family, indeed. Sadly their public appearances are rare.

There has been a bit of a debate on Twitter over an account that is suspected of posing as Margarita. Royal editors and reporters have got into contact with Buckingham Palace as well as Lord Snowdon asking for confirmation about the account, but so far only the palace has refused to comment (I haven’t seen any Tweets about Snowdon’s take on the situation). The first account was suspended but the owner has created a new account. Due to fake accounts for royals being a common phenomena amongst royal fans on social media, and also the nature of the accounts tweets and the fact all their photos came from stock sharing websites like Getty Images rather than private sources - though the old and new profile photos are ones I have not seen before. However they are linked to many royal fan base accounts as well as fake accounts posing for Lady Louise and Estella Taylor; so there are many obvious signs that this account is an imposter. What do you all think? It’s garnered an interesting discussion on Twitter so I wondered what your takes on the matter were.

Lord Snowdon is standing for election as one of the 92 hereditary peers in the House of Lords. He would sit as a non party political crossbencher.

The Earl Snowdon said that he would stand for election, and he is doing it. Hopefully he will win in the election in question. Crossbencher is an interesting word though.

I would imagine that he would have his say of what he believes on an issue at hand and not partial to party stances on an issue. Listen to all sides of a matter and then form an opinion would be my guess.

Then again, what do I know?

Which is a great thing but it might be helpful for whoever is supposed to vote for him to have some idea of what his core values or points of view are

The Earl of Snowdon comes across as skilled and thoughtful. He obviously respects craftsman, wood and preservation of history and furniture along with modern interpretation. He has worked in industry, with an array of customers and workers creating his own business.
He seems to have brought up two lovely children. I think many people will identify with him and vote for him.
