Lady Sarah Frances Elizabeth Chatto (née Armstrong-Jones; born 1 May 1964) is a member of the British royal family. She is the only daughter of the 1st Earl of Snowdon and Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, the second daughter of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. She is 21st in the line of succession to the British throne; at the time of her birth, she was seventh in line. She is the only niece of Queen Elizabeth II and the youngest grandchild of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.


Lady Sarah was born on 1 May 1964[1] at Kensington Palace in London. She attended Bedales School, the Camberwell School of Art and Middlesex Polytechnic (Middlesex University since 1992) and is a professional painter, represented by the Redfern Gallery. She is also Vice President of the Royal Ballet, an appointment she accepted in 2004, following the example of her mother, who was also a patron of the Royal Ballet. She and her brother the 2nd Earl of Snowdon have attracted considerably less media attention than their cousins, the Queen's children Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward.

Lady Sarah was chief bridesmaid at the Wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer on 29 July 1981 at St Paul's Cathedral.

Marriage and issue[edit]

Lady Sarah married Daniel Chatto on 14 July 1994,[1] the marriage being officiated by the Reverend Chad Varah at St Stephen's, Walbrook, in the City of London. The couple had met while working on the film Heat and Dust in India. The bride's wedding gown was designed by Jasper Conran. Her bridesmaids were Lady Frances Armstrong-Jones, Zara Phillips, and Tara Noble. The couple have two children: Samuel (born 28 July 1996 in London) and Arthur (born February 1999 in London).
