Members of the British Royal Family this morning attended a Service of Thanksgiving celebrating the life of Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon who passed away on January 13. The service took place at the Church of St Margaret, Westminster Abbey.

The Earl and Countess of Snowdon, with their two children Charles and Margarita, and Lady Sarah and David Chatto, with their sons Samuel and Arthur, were joined by Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of Cambridge, the Duke of York, the Earl of Wessex, the Duke of Gloucester and the Duke of Kent.

The service was led by the Canon of Westminster, Reverend Jane Sinclair, who said the late Earl “is celebrated for his support of the creative arts and artists. Yet it is also for his championship of those who live with disability that he will be remembered by many.”

During the service, the 2nd Earl of Snowdon – David Armstrong-Jones, only son of the late Earl and Princess Margaret – paid tribute to his father. The Dean of Westminster gave the Address and Blessing.
