The Buckingham Palace announced that Lady Gabriella Windsor has set a date to marry her fiancé. The two will wed in Spring 2019.

Gabriella Windsor and Tom Kingston will exchange vows in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. The venue also housed the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

The wedding will be followed by a reception at the Frogmore House. Gabriella, 37, is the daughter to Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.

Gabriella is 50th in line for the throne and tends to remain out of the spotlight. Her parents will reportedly cover the wedding expenses.

According to Hello! a royal correspondent says the wedding will be "for family and friends, and very different" from the two royal weddings of 2018.


Sources also claim that a carriage procession will not take place, neither will members of the public be allowed into the castle.

The Windsor will not hold a reception either. However, the castle holds meaning for Lady Gabriella, who spent several Christmases there. Frogmore cottage also has sentimental value due to her grandparents' having been buried there.


The Lady works as a senior director for Branding Latin America. Her fiancé is a financier in frontier market investment and a director at Devonport Capital.

The two announced their engagement back in August. Their parents released a statement.

It read:

"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."


Gabrielle has an older brother, Lord Frederick Windsor, who got married in 2009 to Sophie Winkleman. The Queen did not attend the wedding back then.

Nonetheless, members of the royal family are expected to be present at Lady Gabriella's wedding. The guest list has not yet been revealed.


The last royal wedding saw Princess Eugenie in a white, v-necked wedding dress with a long train. She wore an emerald studded tiara and styled her hair in a low bun.

The 28-year-old released new pictures over a month after the wedding took place, showing how she is still enjoying the bliss of being just married.


A black-and-white photo featured Eugenie standing alongside Brooksbank. Their arms were wrapped around each other. They both wore toothy smiles.

Eugenie captioned the photo:

"tbt to THE greatest day of my life [sic]."

We hope that Lady Gabriella has just as happy a wedding day as her fellow female members of the royal family.
