Royal Profile: The Hon. Charles Armstrong-Jones

The Hon. Charles Patrick Inigo Armstrong-Jones is the son of David Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linely, and The Lady Serena Armstrong-Jones, Viscountess Linley on 1 July 1999{Source}. He is also the grandson of Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, andQueen Elizabeth II's great-nephew{Source}. He also has one younger sister{Source}:

He was baptized on 2 December 1999 {Source}, and the following where his godparents{Source}:

  1. Lady Bruce Dundas (nee Sophie Caroline Lascelles, who is a distant relative via the Earldom of Harewood {Source})
  2. Nigel Harvey
  3. Nick Powell
  4. Orlando Rock
  5. Lucinda Cecil
  6. Rita Konig


He is named for various relatives and historical figures:

  1. Charles: For his father's cousin, The Prince of Wales and it also is one of his paternal grandfather's names
  2. Patrick: For the Patron St. of Ireland, his mother's birthplace
  3. Inigo: For 17th Century achietecht 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 19th in line for the British Throne as of 2016{Source}. 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.

Charles has primarily been educated in England. I cannot really say exactly where in England, but I have read that he currently attends Eton, as Prince William and Prince Harry did before him. He may have taken his A-Levels and recent done a GAP year.

As for duties to the Queen, he served as a Page of Honor from 2012-2015.
