Lady Gabriella Windsor recalled the moment her tiara almost fell while walking down the aisle during her wedding day.


Lady Gabriella shared in an interview with HELLO!:

“Suddenly I could feel my tiara start to pull back and in those few unnerving moments I thought it would come crashing down with an almighty clunk.”

She continued, “My little bridesmaids had accidentally wandered on to my very sheer tulle 20ft veil. I slowed down until they’d stepped off it, but then it happened again. Fortunately, my hairdresser had pinned the tiara in place, and it stood firm."

Lady Gabriella tied the knot with Thomas Kingston at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle in May.

“This is the first time I've seen it since the wedding, and it brings back so many happy memories.”



She gushed over her bridal dress.

“It was a magical day and Luisa [Beccaria] created a wonderful dress for me,” she said. “This is the first time I've seen it since the wedding, and it brings back so many happy memories.”

The gown was made from lace and embroidered with flowers and embellishments. It also had a blush shade created by layers of tulle and organdie.


Lady Gabriella is the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent and is the 52nd in line to the succession of the British throne.


The gorgeous tiara Lady Gabriella wore was the same one her mother, Princess Michael, and her paternal grandmother, Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, wore on their wedding days.

The Russian fringe-style diamond tiara is valued at more than $1 million.

Her veil was made from layers of white tulle and also embroidered with flowers, while her bouquet featured a creamy ivory “Ella” rose with myrtle by David Austin.

After the wedding, the newlyweds and their guests went to the Frogmore House, where the bride and groom cut a cake by Fiona Cairns, who also made the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's cake.
