I wish the New Earl and Countess the best in this next chapter of their lives.

Will there be a memorial service for the first Earl of Snowdon do you think? The funeral was a very private affair with only a handful of people there, presumably the Earl & Countess and their two children, and Lady Sarah Chatto her husband and her boys.

A memorial service would be an opportunity for his royal nephews and nieces to pay their respects (Prince of Wales, Princess Royal, Duke of York and Earl of Wessex).

"Architectural Digest" did an interview with the then Lord and Lady Linley in 2005, and published photos of their French Chateau.

(This is the house where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were unknowingly photographed on the terrace some years later.)

I'm not sure if these photos - there are thirteeen in this article - have been posted in an old thread previously, but I'm always curious to see behind closed doors when there have been exterior photos of buildings the Royals have been seen at, and maybe you are too.

Here is a link to the 2005 article, and the interview about the property -

"Son of Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, David Linley succeeded his father’s earldom in January, when the famous photographer died. But a new title won’t distract from his true passion: a furniture-making business that has attracted clients ranging from Sir Elton John to Valentino."

Will Lord Snowdon have his say on Brexit debate? * | Daily Mail Online

Nice to know Lord Snowdon want to put his peerage to some use.

Yes but he shouldn't be putting it to use, he's a royal peer and he should abstain from publishing his opinions in such a way. If he does it, why can't the others? It's a slippery slope.

The article seems to be sensationalism. The Earl of Snowdon is not doing anything illegal. He is not a member of the Royal family. Being a private citizen, he can express his political views on various matters and bid to become a member of parliament.

In my opinion, the DailyMail strongly dislikes the Late Princess Margaret's children.

Lumutqueen 04-29-2017 04:05 PM

The Daily Mail is actually quite accurate in this article, should he publish his opinions or make them known it'll cause a stir, and a big one. People won't differentiate him from his Aunt and his connections to the RF.

I also don't think you can say the DM dislikes David and Serena, as they're never seen.

Iluvbertie 04-29-2017 06:43 PM

Totally out of line for someone as close to the BRF as is Lord Snowdon. His father should have been denied the life peerage or allowed to sit in the Lords after the reforms based on his connections to the Queen and BRF.

If David is successful then next time around it could be Andrew or Edward or even Harry - if he gets a peerage.

Where does it stop - Beatrice standing for a seat in the Commons.

It is the slippery slope to making known the political views of members of the BRF who are supposed to be apolitical (sure constitutionally it is only the monarch who isn't allowed to have a political opinion but the others are encouraged to say nothing so that it can't be argued that they are letting the monarch's views known).

David is the nephew of The Queen and as such should have more sense at how this action will be seen.

A few generations from now there would be no real problem e.g. when it is George who is the King or even William but not while he is the nephew and then first cousin of the monarch of the day.

He may not be royal himself (according to his mother he isn't royal) but he does have The Queen as 'Auntie Lilibet'.

Al_bina 04-29-2017 10:43 PM

Who requested the peerage in question? Who granted the request? It was not The 2nd Earl of Snowdon. It is not the current Earl's of Snowdon fault that the royal courtiers/ advisers were too obtuse to calculate possible issues.

One might assume that David is fully aware of negative consequences his decisions might entail.

Yes, Missy Percy's clothing launch. Here's a picture of Missy and her brother George -

I'm a little surprised Chelsy wasn't there, maybe she was but she wouldn't pose for a photo.
