May 1, 1964 – Birth of Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones, daughter of Princess Margaret of the United Kingdom, at Kensington Palace in London, England
Sarah is the only daughter of Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon. She is a niece of Queen Elizabeth II and the youngest grandchild of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. Lady Sarah was the last royal baby born in a palace.
Lady Sarah and her brother, then Viscount Linley, grew up in the nursery of Kensington Palace, Apartment 1a. They were raised with a nanny, although their parents, most especially their father, were comparatively hands-on (for the time), who also taught them to build things and be creative.
She attended Bedales School, which she left with a single A level in Art. She enrolled at the Camberwell School of Art. After her studies there, she took a two-year sabbatical to travel with her father to India, where he was employed to photograph the production of A Passage to India.
Lady Sarah met Daniel Chatto during her sabbatical in India with her father in the 1980s. He was also working on a film, albeit a different film—Heat and Dust. She married Chatto on 14 July 1994, at St Stephen's, Walbrook, in the City of London. The couple have two sons.
She is currently twenty-second in line of Succession to the British throne. The Queen is said to "adore" Sarah, and will only permit her niece to accompany her to her favourite hideaway, Craigowan Lodge in Aberdeenshire. The pair have been particularly close since the death of Princess Margaret in 2002. Sarah is said to the close to her cousin, Prince Charles, and served as a chief bridesmaid at his wedding to Princess Diana as well as a godmother to their son Prince Harry. She also godmother to Lady Louise, daughter of Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
She is a professional painter, represented by The Redfern Gallery. From 9 December 2015 to 23 April 2016, the Redfern Gallery exhibited "recent paintings and drawings" by "Sarah Armstrong-Jones." Her work has won severals awards.
