Snowdon by Brian Hoey

Book Description

When Antony Armstrong-Jones married Princess Margaret in Westminster Abbey on 6 May 1960, he became, at a stroke, a member of the Royal Family. He was also a trailblazer who prepared the way for other commoners such as Mark Phillips, Diana Spencer and Sarah Ferguson to join this exclusive, if dysfunctional, family group. Created the first Earl of Snowdon by his sister-in-law, the Queen, he was also the first Royal rebel, refusing to accept a subsidiary role to his wife and never willing to walk the mandatory two steps behind her in public. Snowdon was and remains an independent spirit who is now in poor physical health but still enjoys the good things in life: wine, female company and eating in the best restaurants in London, though he claims his favourite meal is beans on toast! As a photographer, he is among the most sought after in the world - his agents say he will not get out of bed for less than GBP5,000. Brian Hoey has talked to Snowdon's son, David, the actor Graham Stark, the late Sir Harry Secombe, Sir Anthony Hopkins and journalist Quentin Crewe to give us a full and frank portrait of this fascinating man.
