David and Serena Armstrong-Jones were married on October 8, 1993 at St Margaret’s Church in Westminster.

The couple had met a few years earlier when Serena’s father, Viscount Petersham, commissioned David to design furniture.

At the time of the couple’s engagement in May 1993, the Earl’s father said: “Both David and Serena are extremely fortunate, especially as they share so many common interests, from a love of art in general to a love of outdoor sports to architecture to ballet and from fashion to furniture design.”

The 650 wedding guests included the Queen, David’s divorced parents, Princess Diana and the Aga Khan.

In 2020, a spokesman for the Earl announced the news of his divorce, saying the split was “amicable”.

He said: “The Earl and Countess of Snowdon have mutually agreed that their marriage is at an end and that they are going to divorce.

He uses his father’s subsidiary title of Viscount Linley as a courtesy title.

In 2012, his great-aunt Queen Elizabeth II made him her First Page of Honour.
