Dahling, we’re on Aristogram! What’s the point of an impeccable pedigree lifestyle if you can’t flaunt it? While Prince Harry and Princess Beatrice keep their private lives private ALISON BOSHOFF looks at the ones who don’t
- The social media toffs include Princess Margaret’s grandson Arthur Chatto
- He posts pictures online of himself trekking topless and exercising in his pants
- Lady Amelia Windsor, 38th in line to the throne, has more than 75,000 followers
With a following of 94,000 on Instagram and a six-pack to make Poldark proud, blue-blooded beefcake Arthur Chatto is king of the social media royals.
Grandson of the late Princess Margaret, and 25th in line to the throne, he has an action-man lifestyle which involves scaling mountains, diving through ice in Greenland and spending plenty of time in the gym.
He is also keen on exercising his selfie finger — and has posted pictures of himself trekking topless and exercising in his pants. But he’s far from the only social media toff.
While some, such as Prince Harry and Princess Beatrice, hide their accounts, others openly share their pictures. So here’s ALISON BOSHOFF’s guide to Aristogram!
Shooting and selfies: Lady Eliza Manners, 21
BLUE BLOOD? Eliza and her sisters Violet and Alice are daughters of the Duke of Rutland. Home is Belvoir Castle, on a 15,000-acre Leicestershire estate. Eliza’s mother Emma lives in a separate wing with her boyfriend — she left the Duke after he had an affair.
CAREER SO FAR: Chiefly known for partying and for having a tattoo in honour of one of Belvoir’s staff, Eliza studied acting in New York but is now on a business course in Newcastle. Named one of Tatler’s ‘English Roses’ last year and on the cover of its swimsuit issue.
INSTAGRAM STYLE: Selfies, belfies (cheeky bottom selfies) and plenty of innuendo. The aristo game is only given away by pictures of her father in tweeds, and lots of shooting parties. ‘Nothing better than a good bang on Christmas Eve,’ she wrote.

Pink-haired party queen: Lady Mary Charteris, 31

INSTAGRAM STYLE: Famous friends and flesh. Actress Jaime Winstone, model Cara Delevingne and radio’s Nick Grimshaw feature in party after party. She is close to guitarist Jamie Hince, and reputedly made his then-wife Kate Moss so jealous at a party that Moss pushed her into a swimming pool.

CAREER SO FAR: Since leaving Edinburgh with a degree in modern languages, Lady Amelia has become a fashion sensation. Tatler call her ‘the most beautiful member of the Royal Family’.

Artfully fashionable: Flora Ogilvy, 24
BLUE BLOOD? Blonde Flora is 52nd in line to the throne. Her father is James Ogilvy, eldest child of Sir Angus Ogilvy and Princess Alexandra — the Queen’s cousin.

INSTAGRAM STYLE: Art galleries and festivals. Like many Insta-stars, there is a commercial element. She says: ‘I have a contract with Dolce & Gabbana who have dressed me, which allowed them to be involved in art and me be exposed in another light.’
