Royal Profile: Charles Armstrong-Jones

The Hon. Charles Armstrong-Jones is the son of David Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linely, the son of Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, and nephew to the Queen, making him Princess Margaret's grandson and Queen Elizabeth's great-nephew.

Charles was born 1 July 1999 in London, which will make him a teenager this summer. He has a younger sister, Margarita, who was a bridesmaid in Prince William's April 2011 wedding to Catherine Middleton.

His first name (Charles) is in honour of his first cousin once removed, Charles, Prince of Wales; his second name (Patrick) is in honour of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, the birthplace of his mother; his third name (Inigo) is in honour of the 17th century English architect and designer Inigo Jones.

He is presently in second position for the Earldom of Snowdon, a title presently held by his grandfather. He is also 15th in line for the British Throne as of 2012. As of present day, he is styled The Hon. Charles Armstrong-Jones, when his grandfather dies, and his father takes the Earldom, he will be known as Viscount Linley, like his father is today.
