Linley was born at The Portland Hospital for Women and Children in London on 1 July 1999. He has a sister, Lady Margarita Armstrong-Jones, who is three years younger. He uses his father's subsidiary title of Viscount Linley as a courtesy peer. His first name is in honour of his first cousin once removed, Charles, Prince of Wales; his second name is in honour of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, the birthplace of his mother; and his third name is in honour of the 17th century English architect and designer Inigo Jones, who is said to be his father's personal hero. Armstrong-Jones was baptised at St James's Palace in 1999 and his godparents are Lady Bruce Dundas, Nigel Harvey, Nick Powell, Orlando Rock, Lucinda Cecil and Rita Konig.
In 2012, his great-aunt Queen Elizabeth II appointed him to be her First Page of Honour. In September of the same year, he began to attend Eton College, Berkshire. He is currently enrolled at Loughborough University in Leicestershire.
As a member of the extended British Royal Family Armstrong-Jones attends events such as Trooping the Colour and Christmas at Sandringham. He also attends other events such as the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Ascot Races.
In 2012, he attended a service of thanksgiving for his late grandmother, Princess Margaret, at Windsor Castle. His parents, sister, aunt and cousins also attended. In honour of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, Charles Armstrong-Jones and his sister Margarita attended another thanksgiving service this time at St Paul's Cathedral in London.
