Snowdon answering about the rumour
Background: Lord Snowdon flew into Hongkong on Wednesday night (March 17) on his way to Sydney amid speculation that his marriage to Princess Margaret was crumbling.
Shortly after his arrival from London, the 46-year-old Snowdon refused to confirm or deny rumours that his marriage had broken down during a news conference at the airport.
London newspapers have reported that Queen Elizabeth has agreed to a separation or divorce between her younger sister and Lord Snowdon. The couple married 16 years ago have a son and a daughter.
During his 15-minute interview, the freelance photographer Snowdon declined to talk about his marriage and brushed newsmen aside with jokes and details of his photographic work and its exhibition in Australia. "I have never, over the last 15 years made any comment about my private life," he said, "and I have no intention of doing so." When a reporter asked a further question, he replied: "That's all, that's all."
