Princess Margaret’s grandson Samuel Chatto has just revealed an exciting achievement – and it’s something no other member of the royal family has done before. The 22-year-old, who is 24th in line to the throne, has qualified to be a yoga teacher in India.
Lady Sarah Chatto’s eldest son took to Instagram to reflect on the past year, and revealed that he spent six weeks in India where he completed his training. However, he says he has no plans of teaching in the near future. Sharing a photo of himself during his trip, Sam wrote: "I also had the most amazing six weeks in India, four of which were spent completing my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training! Although I have no plans of teaching anytime soon, it was an incredibly eye opening experience which I am so deeply grateful for."

He added: "I had the pleasure of connecting with so many beautiful, supportive and honest/open/loving people, discovered so much about my body and mind, and have come away with an invaluable practice and a whole family of kind spirited friends."
Although Sam is the only member of the royal family known to be qualified to teach yoga, he is not the only one who is a fan of the practice. The Duchess of Sussex has long practiced yoga, and developed a love for the exercise thanks to her mother Doria Ragland, who teaches yoga classes in her native Los Angeles.

In an interview with Best Health in 2015, Meghan credited yoga for aiding with "increased flexibility and muscle strength, greater happiness, increased mental focus, a greater ability to relax, decreased anxiety and better sleep". The Duchess also revealed she has continued to practice yoga throughout her pregnancy, and was up at 4:30am during her royal tour of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific to get her workout in.
