How Many Siblings Did The Queen Have?

Her Majesty had a large
family and growing up, the monarch also had a younger sister, Princess
Margaret. During their childhood, the two princesses were incredibly close, and
when she became monarch, Margaret had a direct line to Her Majesty, but like
any siblings, they also argued from time to time, but they always made up.

Sadly, Princess Margaret
passed away in 2002 following a period of declining health that left her paralyzed
on one side.

The Queen was hit hard by the
passing of her younger sister, and at her funeral, she was seen in
tears, one of the few times that the monarch had shown visible emotion.

Her Majesty will reunite with
her younger sister when she is laid to rest in the George VI memorial chapel,
where other members of her family and husband Prince Philip lie.

Through Margaret, the Queen
has a niece, Lady Sarah Chatto, and a nephew, David Armstrong-Jones.

The pair were incredibly close
with the monarch, and David was part of the procession as the Queen’s coffin
was moved to Westminster Hall, where it will now lie in state until the state
funeral on 19 September.

The Queen was said to
“adore” Sarah, and only allowed her niece to accompany her to her
favourite hideaway, Craigowan Lodge, in Aberdeenshire.

Sarah was a chief bridesmaid
at King Charles’ wedding to Princess Diana and is a godmother to their son
Prince Harry. She was also selected to act as a godmother to Prince Edward’s
daughter Louise and the Duke of Gloucester’s daughter Rose.
