The Queen’s nephew, the Earl of Snowdon, appears to have been named in Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous Little Black Book of Contacts.
David Armstrong-Jones – better known as David Linley – appears to have been listed among a series of other high profile names compiled by the pedophile financier.

There is no indication that the Earl did anything wrong, or even had any personal relationship with Epstein or Ghislaine Maxwell.
Mr Linley is the son of the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, is 21st to the throne, is Honorary Chairman of Christie’s auction house and runs his own Linley furniture business.
He appears to have been named in Epstein’s black book which includes some of the world’s most powerful people, such as Donald Trump and former US President Bill Clinton.
The connection comes as her cousin Prince Andrew continues to be pressured to speak to authorities about what he knew about Epstein and Maxwell.
Andrew has been known to be friends with the couple for some time and has been accused of having sex with a 17-year-old sex slave – an allegation he strongly denies.
Epstein’s Little Black Book leaked online, and The Sun Online verified that the name “David Linley” is listed with a redacted phone number.
Hundreds of other names in the book appear to include billionaire Richard Branson, former F1 boss Flavio Briatore, former Prime Minister Tony Blair and rockstar Mick Jagger.
There is absolutely no suggestion that anyone in Epstein’s book has anything to do with his crimes.
Florida-based attorney Spencer Kuvin, representing several Epstein victims, urged the royal to speak to investigators – along with Andrew, The Sunday People reports.
He said: “Anyone with information about Epstein, Maxwell and any of their whereabouts over the past two decades and more should come forward and speak up, including Viscount Linley. “
Kuvin added, “I’m never surprised at the growing list of people who have become Epstein’s hapless friends.
“He’s made his way into every part of society, high and low. ”
Epstein and Maxwell are known to have been regulars in high society – photographed with many celebrities at parties and receptions.
The financier made his way to rub shoulders with the world’s elite, hiding in plain sight while being a sordid sex demon behind closed doors.
He committed suicide last August while awaiting trial, and now his close friend Maxwell is in jail preparing for his day before a judge.
Maxwell – a British socialite – is accused of being his “pimp” or “lady” by procuring him daughters for him to abuse.
The 58-year-old was known to be friends with Prince Andrew and is said to have introduced the Duke of York to Epstein.
She has pleaded not guilty and has consistently denied any wrongdoing regarding her friendship with Epstein – her lawyers accusing the victims of trying to turn her into a scapegoat.
Mr Linley is known as The Royal Carpenter due to his furniture business and became the Second Earl of Snowdon after his father’s death in 2017.
The Earl was chosen by Prince Charles to work as number two in the Prince’s Foundation, being chosen before Prince William and Prince Harry.
It was announced earlier this year that he and his wife Serena are due for a “amicable” divorce after 26 years of marriage.
David and Serena have two children, Viscount Linley, Charles Armstrong-Jones, 20, and Lady Margarita Armstrong-Jones, 17.

Epstein’s death last year as victims on the left focused on Maxwell, who will face trial next July on sex charges related to the case.
She has been deprived of bail and it is believed she may try to seek a plea deal if she agrees to fire other conspirators linked to Epstein.
Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the Earl appearing to be named in the Black Book when contacted by phone by The Sun Online.
The Sun Online has also contacted representatives for The Earl, but it was reported in The Sunday People that he declined to comment.
