Lady Gabriella Wears a Diamond Bridal Tiara Also Worn by Her Mum and Late Grandmother on Their Wedding Days
On Saturday, Lady Gabriella Windsor married Thomas Kingston at Windsor Castle. For the occasion, the Royal wore a special item that was once worn by her late grandmother.
Lady Gabriella Windsor, 37, wore an expensive piece of jewelry to get married to financier Thomas Kingston, 40, at St George’s Chapel. She wore a Russian fringe-style diamond tiara worth more than $1 million.
The tiara was previously worn by her mother, Princess Michael, and her grandmother, Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, on their wedding days. Gabriella stunned onlookers by wearing a bespoke wedding dress designed by Italian Luisa Beccaria.

Her bridesmaids were Isabella Windsor, Maud Windsor, Leonora Weisman, Aurelia del Drago, Eliza Goldsmith, and Emily Conolly. Their cream dresses with blush underlays and sashes were designed by Beccaria.
