Princess Margaret’s grandchildren often fade into the background amidst the bigger and more high-profile royal children. Samuel David Benedict Chatto is one of these great-nephews that is hardly spoken about.
Who is Samuel Chatto?
Let’s take a deeper look at the monarch’s family tree to understand who Samuel Chatto is. Princess Margaret–the Queen’s younger sister–married society photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon at Westminster Abbey. Mirror confirms that they had two children together—David Armstrong-Jones and Lady Sarah Chatto.
Lady Sarah Chatto married Daniel Chatto on July 14, 1994. The wedding took place at St Stephen’s, Walbrook in London and resulted in two children Samuel David Benedict Chatto and Arthur Robert Nathaniel Chatto.
What does he do?
Samuel recently celebrated his 26th birthday on July 28. He was born in London and like other royal members of his family, he went to Eton College. However, Sam takes after his mother and has a keen interest in art and pottery. After finishing Eton College, he went on to study the history of art at the University of Edinburgh.
Sam participated in a Somerset display with three pots after completing a six-week apprenticeship with North Shore Pottery. Sam has a decent 88.5k Instagram followers and has very enlightening and positive posts. In 2018, when he completed his apprenticeship, he wrote on Instagram:
2018 was such an incredible year of self-reflection and growth for me.
I spent six weeks in the very north of Scotland immersed in pottery and ceramics, being taught by the most patient and passionate potter. Clay consumed my every waking hour and I am so excited to see what I can achieve this year!
