After her parents' divorce in 1968, Abigail was brought up in Pimlico by her mother and her mother's boyfriend, Gareth Stedman Jones. Her father also kept in regular contact. Abigail attended Pimlico Comprehensive, sporadically because of her often marching with her mother; Sally Alexander was involved in the flour-bombing of the 1970 Miss World contest.
