Natalie was born in Cardiff, Wales in 1981. Her parents were both schoolteachers at a small school comprehensive school. At school, she was taught in both English and Welsh. Natalie campaigned alongside her parents in the 1997 UK election and Welsh devolution referendums. At Oxford, Natalie was a member of Labour Students. During her time in school and serving as a volunteer in the 2001 and 2005 election, her early political life was influenced by the popularity of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.
Overtime she began to fall more into the Brownite branch of the New Labour movement. In the 2010 Labour leadership election she supported and campaigned for Ed Miliband. Natalie was selected to run for the seat of Swansea West during the lead up to the 2015 election. During the subsequent leadership election, she nominated Yvette Cooper. Natalie campaigned in her constituency to remain in the European Union, and after the election has favored a soft Brexit and preventing a no-deal brexit (to the extent a backbencher could). During the 2016 leadership election she endorsed Owen Smith. Clarke voted in favor of any motion that blocked a no deal brexit including the vote on the 13th of March 2019. She voted with the whip on the indicative votes on the 1st of April 2019. During the 2020 Labour leadership election she supported Sir Keir Starmer.
Natalie has three children with her husband Charles who works as a solicitor in Cardiff, her children names are Webster (12), Emma (10), and Robin (7). The family has three pets, a grey and white cat named Lucky and a Welsh Corgi named Luna.
