Katherine Emma Lambert was on July 25, 1992, in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.  Her parents are Nicholas Lambert and Fiona Jane Burn.  She has an older brother, Angus Thomas F. Lambert, who was born in early 1991 in Yorkshire, and a younger sister, Rosanna Mary (1995).  She is a graduate of Sandhurst.

Nicholas Thomas Lambert is a Former Partner at Sarasin & Partners LLP.  He was born in February 1957 in Bradford, the son of Thomas P Lambert and Davinia M. Walford.

Katherine's parents live in Hertfordshire.

Another royal genealogist has pointed out that Katherine is a descendant of Charles II and Barbara Villiers, Duchess of Cleveland, through their son, Charles Fitzroy, 2nd Duke of Cleveland, and his second wife, Anne Pulteney.   The line of descent is from their eldest daughter, Lady Grace Fitzroy who married Henry Vane, Earl of Darlington. The connection is through Katherine's paternal grandmother, Davinia Walford.

Katherine's paternal grandfather died only days before the official announcement of her engagement.
