Early life

Lady Sarah was born on 1 May 1964 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 Viscount Linley have attracted less media attention than their cousins, the Queen's children Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward. Their mother interfered very little in their professional and personal lives. Queen Elizabeth II keeps in close contact with Lady Sarah and Lord Linley. They often accompany her on family holidays, and they and their children are often invited to Royal events.

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

Lady Sarah married Daniel Chatto on 14 July 1994, 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:
