The Buckingham Palace informed the public that the newest wedding will take place in spring 2019. Thomas Kingston is the lucky fiancé to the 37-year-old.

Gabriella is the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent. Prince Michael of Kent is first cousins with Queen Elizabeth II, making his daughter third cousins with Prince William and Prince Harry.

Their soon-to-be son-in-law reportedly asked Gabriella to marry him in August on the Isle of Sark. The Palace gave PEOPLE the official statement:

"Prince and Princess Michael of Kent are delighted to announce the engagement of their daughter Lady Gabriella Windsor to Mr Thomas Kingston. The engagement took place in August, Mr Kingston proposed on the Isle of Sark."

Lady Gabriella mostly keeps her private affairs under wraps, but she was made into a hot topic in spring when an ex-boyfriend, Aatish Taseer, divulged information to Vanity Fair. He had dated Gabriella back in the 2000's.

Taseer claimed that in London, Princess Michael of Kent showed acts of racism and even wore a racist brooch to the Queen's Christmas lunch in 2017. He highlighted a well-known New York outburst in 2004, as well as her allegedly naming two black sheep Venus and Serena.

He also said that Gabriella and himself used drugs and the Lady used to swim naked in the Buckingham Palace pool.

Meanwhile, his ex Gabriella, referred to as "Ella" for short, works in writing as a Senior Director at Branding Latin America and as a contributor to London Magazine.

Her pieces have been featured in the Sunday Telegraph, the Evening Standard, the Spectator, Country Life, and Hello!

Her fiancé, "Tom" for short, is a frontier market investment worker and a Director of Devonport Capital. He previously dated Pippa Middleton the sister of Kate Middleton.

Their wedding will be the third royal ceremony witnessed within a year. Parents Prince Michael of Kent and his wife, who are 46th and 50th in line to the throne respectively, are sometimes present on the Buckingham Palace balcony for public events.

The couple gave birth to their daughter Gabriella on April 23, 1981, in St. Mary's Hospital, London. Gabriella, who nearly shared her birthday with the Queen's, grew up in an apartment on the palace grounds. She attended the Brown University in Rhode Island.

Fans of the Royals will wonder if Gabriella's wedding will come close to the most recent ceremonies which have been quite grand.

Eugenie's is set to be one of the biggest events of the Windsor castle according to a report from Vanity Fair just last week. The ceremony is set for October 12.

The 28-year-old's parents are said to be the main advocates for the extravagant wedding. They sent out 850 invitations, including those to a few celebrities.

The public is also to expect another carriage procession, a two-day wedding party, and a lavish reception. The total cost is estimated at £2 million and is to be covered by taxpayers.
