The Queen and Princess Margaret - The Big Difference Between Their Grandchildren

The Queen is a doting
grandparent to eight grandchildren, including, of course, heir to the
throne Prince William and his brother, Prince Harry.

Like her sister, the late
Princess Margaret also had children, although she divorced her husband,
Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon, in 1978 after 18 years of
marriage.

The pair welcomed a son and a
daughter, David Armstrong-Jones, 2nd Earl of Snowdon and Lady Sarah Chatto,
both of whom had children of their own.

But while the Queen has four
granddaughters, Princess Margaret had just one: David’s daughter Lady
Margarita Armstrong-Jones, who recently marked her 20th birthday.

Sadly, though, the
Queen’s sister never met her only granddaughter, as she died three months
before Margarita was born.

The monarch has been fortunate
enough to see all of her granddaughters grow up, and three of the four of them
now have children of their own.

Zara Tindall, 41, shares three
kids with her husband Mike: Mia, eight, Lena, three, and Lucas, one. Eugenie
and her husband Jack Brooksbank share a one-year-old son August, and Princess
Beatrice, who married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in 2020, welcomed daughter
Siena in September last year.

The Queen’s youngest
granddaughter, Lady Louise Windsor, the Earl and Countess of Wessex’s eldest child,
is just 18 years old. She was known to have a close bond with the
late Prince Philip, with whom she shared a passion for the sport of carriage
riding, with the late Prince bequeathing her his carriage in his will.

The Queen’s other
grandchildren are Zara’s brother Peter Phillips, 44, and Louise’s brother
James, Viscount Severn, who is 14.

Princess Margaret’s three
grandsons are Sarah’s grown-up children Samuel, 25, and Arthur, 23 and David’s
son Charles, Viscount Linley, 22.

At the time of the late
royal’s death, the Queen released a statement confirming the tragic
news of her sister’s stroke, and revealing that her children were by her side
as she died “peacefully in her sleep”.
