Lady Sarah Chatto and David Armstrong-Jones

After her very dramatic relationship with Peter Townsend and before (actually while, lol) and her equally dramatic relationship with Roddy Llewellyn, Princess Margaret was married to Antony Armstrong-Jones – aka Lord Snowdon. Margaret and Antony were together for 18 years before separating in 1976 and they have two children together: David and Sarah. Who, considering her mother was on the news literally Non stop, stay pretty under the radar these days. Like, have you ever heard of them?

Time to get to know Princess Margaret’s children a little better.

Meet David Armstrong-Jones, 2nd Earl of Snowdon, former Viscount Linley. This distinguished fellow is 60 years old, was a former chairman of Christie’s auction house, and is a furniture maker. Here he is as a little Wee BB with his mom:

And here he looks extremely perky in knee socks (10/10 wears this outfit in October):

David has been pretty low key for the past few years but now his cousin (that would be Charles) is King we will definitely be seeing him more often. First of all, he joined the Royals’ walk behind the Queen’s coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster and was also spotted in their funeral procession.

Any chic highlights in David’s life? He was born at Clarence House (where King Charles and Queen Camilla lived), Queen Elizabeth II was his godmother, and he spent much of his youth relaxing in various royal palaces. Normal childhood things we can all relate to!

These days, David has his own furniture and homewares company called Linley, whose vibes are pretty much what you’d expect. Enjoy your purchase of this $3,843 chess board.

In terms of his personal life, David was married to a viscount’s daughter named Serena Alleyne Stanhope (they separated in 2020), which sounds like the premise for a future season of Bridgeton/some romance novel. Apparently, Serena descended from one of King Charles II’s “illegitimate” children! Cool!

Anyway, these two have children of their own, and their daughter, Margarita Armstrong-Jones, was one of the bridesmaids at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. Here she is with Pippa!

Oh, and in other David messages, he was the victim of a blackmail scheme by people who tries to publish incriminating video material of him. They were arrested and taken to prison. Anyway, on to David’s sister – but not before we all stare at this photo in awe:

Lady Sarah Chatto

Lady Sarah Chatto is the only daughter of Margaret and Antony and turned 56 last May. Here she is as a baby with her parents and older brother:

Speaking of Diana, Sarah was a bridesmaid at Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding, as well as Princess Anne’s wedding. Your outfits at both events are the best I’ve ever seen?

Lady Sara is also Prince Harry’s godmother and was incredibly close to the Queen:

She was spotted at Her Majesty’s funeral with a collection of giant diamond brooches on her lapel called The Snowdon Floral Brooches, a gift from her mother, Princess Margaret.

As a reminder, Tony also fathered another child

Before we go, a casual reminder that in May 1960 Tony had a daughter named Polly, just a couple weeks before his royal wedding to Princess Margaret. Polly only found out later in life that Tony was her father and in 2008 she spoke to him about the situation Daily Mail, and said, “I have no memories of being flung high in the air, hitting swings, or riding on the handlebars of a doting father’s bike. But you don’t miss what you never had.” She also said that “finding out at the age of 45 that the man I had idolized and put on a pedestal higher than Nelson’s column since I was a little kid wasn’t really a heavy burden for my father .”

Tony *also* had a daughter named Frances during his second marriage and fathered a son named Jasper during an affair. The more you know!
