Description of the flag

The second daughter of King George VI, sister of the Queen, used the Royal Standard differenced with a white label with three pendants, with Tudor-roses and a thistle proper. Used from 1948 to her death in 2002.

Royal Standard differenced by three point label charged with one thistle and two roses.
This Standard and the impaled Standard of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother were the only personal Standards that included the Royal Standard when the Royal Standard was revised in 1956-57. It was pointed out at the time, by both the Lord Chamberlain's Office and the College of Arms, that personal Standards which included the Royal Standard should not be altered to conform to alterations in the Royal Standard without the consent of the owner of the personal Standard.

Princess Margaret was entitled as the daughter and granddaughter of reigning monarchs to have a personal standard. However, she and her then husband, the photographer Anthony Armstrong-Jones (Lord Snowdon) decided that as their children were very far removed from the succession to the throne that it was pointless to give them either the style of Royal highnesses or personal flags of their own. Their son, David Armstrong-Jones, has the courtesy title of Viscount Linley and will inherit his father's title upon his death, but as most hereditary peers have already been excluded from the House of Lords, with the others presumably to follow soon, the title will merely give him personal status. Their daughter, Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones is now Lady Sarah Chatto since her marriage.
