The family moved to Buenos Aires when Taylor-Joy was an infant, and she spoke mostly Spanish while growing up. Her father was awarded an MBE in the 1982 New Year Honours (for services to the British community in Buenos Aires) and an OBE in 1998 (for services to British trade with Argentina). She lived in Buenos Aires until age six, when the family moved to the Victoria area of London. Taylor-Joy was traumatised by the move and refused to speak English for two years, believing this would force her parents to move the family back to Argentina. She attended the preparatory school Hill House in Chelsea and Queen’s Gate School in South Kensington, with a stint at Northlands School in Argentina in between. She trained in ballet.

Taylor-Joy holds triple British, American, and Argentine citizenship.
