Princess Margaret's daughter is a doting mother-of-two

Despite being one of the lesser-known members of the royal family, Lady Sarah Chatto occasionally steps out with the Queen and the Firm for important events. On Thursday she was spotted attending Ladies Day at Royal Ascot, while she also celebrated Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee earlier this month. 

Lady Sarah also gained popularity after her appearance in the BBC documentary Elizabeth at 90: A Family Tribute, in which she won over viewers with her down-to-earth nature and evident affection for the Queen.

As the daughter of Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, Sarah is 28th in line to the throne and the Queen's only niece. However, she prefers to maintain a life out of the royal spotlight with her husband Daniel Chatto and their two sons, Samuel and Arthur.

Nonetheless, Sarah maintains a close relationship with the senior royals, including her aunt, the Queen. The respect and affection she has for the monarch was clear to see in the BBC documentary in honour of Her Majesty's 90th birthday in 2016, and it appears the feeling is mutual.

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, with whom the Queen shared an incredibly strong bond.

Of all her cousins it is Prince Charles who Sarah is said to remain closest to. The pair are said to enjoy spending downtime painting together at Balmoral when the opportunity arises. Sarah was also a chief bridesmaid at Charles' wedding to Princess Diana and is a godmother to their son Prince Harry

Sarah and her husband David Chatto

Sarah grew up in Kensington Palace with her older brother David and their parents, who divorced when she was just 13. As a teenager, she attended Bedales boarding school in Hampshire, where she cultivated her passion and talent for art.

The pair married in 1994

Following her graduation, she worked as a wardrobe assistant on Heat and Dust, where she met her husband Daniel Chatto, who had a small role in the film.

The couple shunned a lavish royal wedding in favour of a low-key service at St Stephen's Walbrook church in July 1994, with Sarah wowing in a Jasper Conran gown and the Snowdon Floral Tiara.

Still happily married, the couple live in Kensington and are parents to two sons - Samuel, 25, and Arthur, 23. Both sons studied at Eton before attending the University of Edinburgh.
