Queen Elizabeth II’s nephew in latest royal marriage split

Queen Elizabeth II’s nephew David Armstrong-Jones is set to divorce, a spokesman said Monday — the second marriage split in the British royal family announced within a week.
Armstrong-Jones, 58, the son of Queen Elizabeth’s late sister princess Margaret, and his 49-year-old wife Serena have been married since 1993.
“The Earl and Countess of Snowdon have amicably agreed that their marriage has come to an end and that they shall be divorced,” a spokesman for the couple said.
“They ask that the press respect their privacy and that of their family.”
The earl is the first person in the line of succession to the throne who is not a direct descendant of Queen Elizabeth.
He was born fifth in line but is now 21st in the order of succession.
