Happy Birthday to David Armstrong-Jones, 2nd Earl of Snowdon, who turns 56 today! Born Viscount Linley as the eldest child and only son of Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon, he is the only nephew of Queen Elizabeth II (by blood as opposed to by marriage), and has a younger sister, Lady Sarah Chatto as well as half-siblings from his father’s other relationships. Educated in the UK, he operates his own company, David Linley Furniture where he makes bespoke furniture, upholstery, and interior design products known for their neoclassical appearance and use of inlaid woods, including the Linley Beechwood Tiara. In 1993, the then Lord Linley married Serena Stanhope, daughter of the Earl of Harrington, at St Margaret’s, Westminster. The couple have two children. He succeeded to the Earldom after the death of his father earlier this year. I wish his Lordship a very Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns!
