Lord Snowdon, the former husband of Princess Margaret, has died aged 86.
A family spokesman said the 86-year-old died peacefully at home today.
The photographer and filmmaker, who split from the Queen’s sister in 1978, leaves behind four children.
A statement released by Buckingham Palace said the Queen has been informed of her former brother-in-law’s death, however they declined to comment further.
Lord Snowdon and Princess Margaret shared two children together - David Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linley, and Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones.
While the Earl will be largely remembered for his failed marriage to the Queen’s sister, he was also an acclaimed photographer, film maker and passionate campaigner for the disabled.
