Need Workout Motivation? Princess Margaret’s Grandson Just Became a Personal Trainer

We’ve dreamed of going to the gym only to run into a member of the royal family, but we never thought the sweaty meet-cute would actually be possible…until now.

Princess Margaret’s grandson, Arthur Chatto, recently landed a job as a personal trainer. The 21-year-old can be found at BoundFitness in Edinburgh, Scotland, where he leads two weekly classes along with one-on-one appointments.

According to Chatto’s bio on the gym’s Instagram page, the royal has been training for the role for quite some time. “I’m a level 3 personal trainer, I specialize in strength and endurance training with a military focus. I was lucky enough to row around the UK this summer! This gave me a lot of experience in training myself and the team to complete the challenging expedition,” it read. “I’ve found physical training to be an essential cornerstone in improving my own mental health and I want to share this with others.”

The caption also shared details about Chatto’s schedule: “Arthur is going to be running Bound Core on Wednesday mornings, and Bound Bootcamp on Thursday evenings.”

Chatto is the youngest son of Daniel and Lady Sarah (AKA Princess Margaret’s daughter). He’s currently following in the footsteps of his older brother, Samuel or “Sam” (24), as a student at Eton College. Chatto is also 26th in line to the British throne.

So, who’s in for a trip across the pond? …anyone?
