Royal family fans would often read about Queen Elizabeth II’s direct descendants such as Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry on an almost daily basis. However, a few of their close relatives such as the late Princess Margaret’s children, David, 2nd Earl of Snowdon, and Lady Sarah Chatto, lead relatively normal lives away from media scrutiny.

Given their low-key lifestyle, fans naturally want to know more about these two royals. Specifically, they want to know if David and Lady Sarah have a good relationship with their aunt and sole sibling of their mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Princess Margaret was born on Aug. 21, 1930, which makes her four years younger than Her Majesty. As the eldest, Elizabeth was responsible and serious, while Margaret was described as “precocious and playful, with a wild streak and penchant for grabbing attention.”

However, this difference in temperament did not go in the way of the sibling’s relationship with each other. There were times that Margaret, who was known as the royal family’s original “wild child,” would cause her older sister to be displeased. But at the end of the day, they’re the only sibling for each other.

They were so close that they would chat with each other every day using a direct line, which is a feat in those pre-cellphone and FB messenger days. “Princess Margaret had a telephone on her desk in Kensington Palace with a direct line to the Queen in Buckingham Palace, on which the two would gossip and laugh with each other daily,” Reinaldo Herrera, a guest at the Royal Lodge in the seventies, wrote on Vanity Fair.

Given her closeness to Margaret, it should not come as a surprise then for the Queen to be close to her nephew and niece as well. “The Queen pretty much raised them with her own children during their Mother's very public breakdown of her marriage,” Scott White, a longtime follower of the royal family, wrote on Quora. “They summered at Balmoral, they were included on the annual yachting trip around the Western Isles.”

The Earl of Snowdon and Lady Sarah Chatto are also included in family gatherings as much as possible. Quora user Heather Goodman also noted that there are a lot of footages on “The Queen At 90” documentary of both David and Sarah playing with the Queen’s sons Andrew and Edward when they were still children

Lady Sarah is also Prince Harry's godmother. This suggests that Princess Margaret’s children are very close not only to Queen Elizabeth II but also to her children and grandchildren to this day.
