Lord Anthony Armstrong-Jones


Age: 86

British society photographer and filmmaker considered as one of England's most famous photographers who married Britain's Princess Margaret (died 2002) and continued to mix in royal circles even after their divorce, who was one of the few top-echelon royals to hold down an outside job after he married the queen's sister in 1960 and whose professional reputation grew steadily but was admired for his discretion, never speaking with the media about the breakup of the marriage in 1978 and rejecting offers to write a book about it when he married the high-spirited Princess Margaret at Westminster Abbey on May 6, 1960 in the first royal wedding to be televised (whatever doubts the country might have had about his suitability were swept aside by general relief that Margaret had found love at last, but it had been five years since her widely publicized decision to end her romance with divorced war hero Peter Townsend after pressure from church leaders, political figures, and her own family), and who was named the Earl of Snowdon in October 1961.
