Sad to hear of his death but he had reached a good age and was in increasingly poor health

^ Yes, he reached a good age and lived an exciting life. 

About 10 years ago I was in London and he nearly knocked me over.  He wagged his finger at me like he was still a Royal.

Another of the old guard has gone.

Those are wonderful photographs. Thanks for sharing.

It's nice to see Charles and Diana have real affection for each other. They were a happy family once.

I really like the one of Princess Margaret in the bath tub.  :nod:

Antony was educated at Cambridge. Architecture was the subject he had chosen for his degree. However he developed an interest in photography.

He was "extremely sad" that the marriage ended, my foot!! Snowden was absolutely terrible to Margaret... rude, name calling .. He wanted a divorce very badly if I recall that time....  Of course then Margaret could also be a handful. Snowden was not extremely sad, at all..

I enjoyed the behind the scenes story by India Hicks on a doc about him wielding a whistle to get everyone on point taking his wedding photos of C&D. Some real stunners of Diana in there, love the upward gaze photo and the engagement pic with the blue oxford shirt, so casual and romantic, :crazylove: and the fact that her shirt looks like she had to borrow one of his, is for its time in royal photos, a bit saucy if i do say LOL.  As usual, my favs pics of her are in casual clothes.

The pics in 92 of her I wonder if they were around the time of the book coming out, or of the separation, she looks so stiff and weary in them, like the weight of the world is on those shoulders.  :flower:

Yes, I'm afraid the 'extremely sad' about the marriage ending in the Roddy Llewellen saga was strictly for public consumption. I'm sure he was secretly delighted. Snowdon could be quite searing in his criticisms and Margaret didn't hold back either. Theirs truly was a marriage from hell after a few years, just as awful as the Wales's.

Meet the new Earl of Snowdon

Following the death of Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon, former husband of Her Royal Highness Princess Margaret, the new Earl of Snowdon is their son, David Albert Charles Armstrong-Jones. Although he succeeded to his father’s peerage immediately upon his death, it is part of a well-established convention not to style him as Earl of Snowdon until after his father’s funeral.

David Armstrong-Jones was born on 3 November 1961 and was styled as Viscount Linley up until his father’s death. He was joined by a sister, Lady Sarah Chatto (née Armstrong-Jones) in 1964. From the age of five, he took lessons with his cousin Prince Andrew at Buckingham Palace and later went to several schools. He developed a passion for arts and crafts, and from 1980 to 1982 he studied at Parnham House for craftsmen in wood. He opened his own workshop, where he designed and made furniture and set up his own company. He is also the author of several books.

As a grandson of George VI, he currently stands 18th in line to succeed his aunt, Her Majesty The Queen. He is the first person in the line of succession not to be a direct descendant of Her Majesty.

Good pictures, but the writing..is well the DM. The Earl's funeral has NOT taken place yet despite what the caption states.

 In 1956 Antony Armstrong-Jones was commissioned to take the 21st birthday pictures of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.
