Buckingham Palace has announced that this spring will see another royal couple tie the knot.
St George’s Chapel in Windsor has a long-standing relationship with royal weddings, dating as far back as 1863 when Edward VII married Princess Alexandra of Denmark. Last year, the Queen’s Free Chapel was the perfect venue for two Royal weddings to remember, and there will soon be another one within its cloistered walls.
Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston are set to marry this year, making Lady Gabriella the third royal bride to wed in Windsor within a year. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry also chose the chapel for their ceremonies in 2018, as did Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. The Palace spokesman advised, however, that this event would be “very different.” Unlike the previous two weddings, which were watched by millions, it will not be televised and is to be an occasion for family and friends.
Lady Gabriella is closely related to The Queen. The daughter of Her Majesty’s cousin Prince Michael of Kent, Lady Gabriella is currently 50th in line for the throne. Kingston works as a financier and holds a directorship at Devonport Capital. The two have been in a relationship for three years.
In August 2018, during a romantic break, Kingston proposed to Lady Gabriella on the Channel Island of Sark, and although a precise date has not been named as yet, the wedding is certainly set for this spring and wedding invitations will no doubt be winging their way to guests.
