Yes, her grandmother was born Marian Louisa Montagu-Douglas-Scott, herself a granddaughter of the 6th Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry and a first cousin of Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester.

Diana, Camilla and Sarah share a number of common ancestors. Here is the list of some of them:


Diana, Camilla and Sarah are all descended from Louise de Kérouaille, Duchess of Portsmouth (mistress of Charles II) through her son Charles Lennox, Duke of Richmond.
Diana and Sarah was also descended from another of Charles II's mistresses, Barbara Villiers, Duchess of Cleveland (through their son, Henry Fitzroy).

William Douglas, 6th Earl of Morton (the son of Sir Robert Douglas and Margaret Erskine, a former mistress of King James V of Scotland) is an ancestor to both Diana and Camilla.

Diana and Sarah are descended from Arabella Churchill, the mistress of King James II.
Correction: It was previously stated that they were both descended from Henrietta FitzJames, Arabella and King James's daughter. However, upon check, I found that they are descended through two different children: only Diana was descended from Henrietta FitzJames, while Sarah is descended from one of Arabella's and King James's sons (through illegitimate line).

Mary Boleyn (mistress of Henry VIII and sister of Anne Boleyn) is an ancestor to Diana, Sarah and the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Lucrezia de' Medici is an ancestor to Diana, Camilla and Sarah (through her grandson, the famous Cosimo I de' Medici).

Diana, Camilla and Sarah are descended from Maria de Salinas, Lady Willoughby (the faithful friend and lady-in-waiting to Catherine of Aragon, whose daughter). It is alleged that Henry VIII wanted to divorce (or execute) his 6th wife, Catherine Parr and marry Maria's daughter Catherine Willoughby, Duchess of Suffolk.

Agnese del Maino (the mistress of Filippo Visconti, the last legitimate Duke of Milan of the Visconti dynasty) is an ancestor to Diana and Sarah.

Robert, 2nd Earl of Essex (the favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, who was executed for treason in 1601) is an ancestor (through his daughter, Frances Seymour, Duchess of Somerset) of the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, Diana, Camilla and Sarah.


Of course, this is not nearly a complete list of the ancestors they shard, merely a list of some interesting (for me) ones.

Mary Boleyn (mistress of Henry VIII and sister of Anne Boleyn) is an ancestor to Diana, Sarah and the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

She's not a descendant of King James II, but of his brother King Charles II.

Sarah is descended from James II.
Her ancestor was one of the 3 illegitimate children of Henry Fitzjames (I am not sure which one, although I believe it was a girl), Governor of Limousin, himself the son of James FitzJames, 1st Duke of Berwick - the illegitimate son of James II and Arabella Churchill.

And yes, she is also descended from Charles II; as susan alicia put it, half the English nobility and gentry is descended from him.
