Apparently, the Prince and Duchess of Cambridge are staying at the Linley's Chateau d'Autet. The press has touted this as a vacation home for the Linley's but in fact, you can book in there as well. Maids only come in for an hour or two and linen is changed only every four days. :)

Do they own the Chateau then? It's beautiful. They are in a lot of the images, Serena is ever so pretty.

Edit: Never mind, read the history. They bought it in 1999. Wow, it is stunning. I want to gooooooo!

Is Anthony Armstrong-Jones at all involved with the royal family in any capacity? Does he still pursue photography as a career or is he retired by now?

I believe Lord Snowdon is retired or at least semi retired from his career as a photographer. I don't think his health is especially robust these days. From everything I have read I believe he remained on quite good terms with The Queen and especially The Queen Mother after his divorce from Princess Margaret.
His own personal life has had its complications. 2 marriages, 2 divorces and 2 children born out of wedlock. Not sure if he has a current companion.

Does Viscount Linley become Lord Snowdon upon his father's death?

Yes he will succeed his father as 2nd Earl of Snowdon, and his son Charles will become Viscount Linley.

Russia threatens legal action against Queen’s cousin, Viscount Linley, to recover £400,000 loan from Moscow bank
Quote:
The Russian authorities are threatening legal action in Britain to recover a £400,000 loan by a Moscow bank to the Queen's cousin Viscount Linley's bespoke furniture business. Such a step - which would be highly embarrassing to the Royal Family - is being mooted because the up-market interior design company has failed to heed a demand to repay the cash, say officials in Moscow.
I find some of the comments at the end of this article quite interesting.
And really, DM, the Queen's cousin?

Well, it is an odd situations. I wonder what prompted Russian authorties to publicly go after Viscount Linley.

Perhaps they want their money back and going "public" gives them some additional leverage.

I think you are right. Russian probably exhausted all means trying to make Viscount Linley pay the loan back. I am not sure whether or no the public naming and shaming will be effectual.

As even the article in the DM states - the loan was given in 2009 for a 5 Year period - to be repayed 2014. IMHO it is a legal dispute if they really have the right to call the loan back earlier.

As we do not know the terms of the loan and the legislation in Russia - it is quite impossible to say IF Linley really is at fault.

If you take a mortgage to your house - you expect the bank to stick to the contract; as you are expected to stick to the terms of the contract.

It only shows how on-sided contra Royalty the DM writes.

Viscount Linley attended a VIP Preview of the Frieze Art Fair in Regent's Park in London on October 10, 2012. His after-job look is likeable, see pic 2.
