LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: David Armstrong-Jones, the darling nephew of Queen Elizabeth II and son of late Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, will reportedly be seen with his cousins to pay respects to the late monarch. As per reports, the 60-year-old Lord Snowdon will accompany King Charles, Princes Anne, and Princes Andrew and Edward in the funeral procession for the 96-year-old ruler on Wednesday afternoon, September 14.

Other royal family members, like Princes William and Harry, will also walk with them behind Her Majesty’s coffin while “it makes its 38-minute journey in front of thousands of mourners lining the streets in central London,” The Daily Mail reported. It has been said that Margaret’s eldest child will walk beside the Queen's cousin the Duke of Gloucester, Peter Phillips, and Princess Anne's husband Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence during the procession. However, there is no confirmation of Lord Snowdon's sister Lady Sarah Chatto's attendance.

It has been said that Snowdon was quite close to the late Queen and also shares a great bond with her four children. While growing up, they spent a lot of time with each other. He and Prince Andrew apparently received lessons together in Buckingham Palace when they were little.

In 2019, Snowdon, a furniture designer by profession, expressed his fondness for his parents in an interview with the Daily Telegraph. He reportedly said, “There was pressure on my parents from their friends saying, ‘When’s he going to get a proper job?’ But when you made things and brought them back from school, that was high kudos.”

Other royal members have also stuck together during these difficult times. After the September 8 death of the Queen, Prince William and Prince Harry along with their respective wives presented themselves as a single unit despite numerous issues in the past. The “Fab Four” went together for a walkabout outside Windsor Castle last Saturday, September 10, attracting a lot of reactions online.

While one Twitter user said, “It Made My Heart ♥️ Feel So Happy To See Them Together ♥️♥️♥️♥️I Pray 🙏🏾 That This Is Forever🥰❣️❣️❣️Love ♥️Is Always Better Than Hate🥰❣️❣️❣️❣️,” another tweeted, “lol fab four.” However, someone else shared, “Stop with the Fab Four stuff please. The idea of the Fab Four ended with Megxit and should only refer to engagements before Megxit. If there was a Fab Four type group it would be another combination of people like the Wales' and Wessexes or the Wales' and Anne  (I know that's 3).” “I think Dianas death haunts them both to this day, and I think both loved the queen, and have mutual interests here. They both wanted to be there to honor her, it doesn't have to be deeper than that IMO,” someone added.
