According to the release, Kingston proposed during a getaway to the Isle of Sark, which is located off the coast of France. The couple kept their engagement a secret for about a month.

“Lady Gabriella (known as ‘Ella’) is a Senior Director at Branding Latin America, a brand-positioning platform that specializes in the region,” it was noted in the statement from Buckingham Palace. “She is also a writer and contributes to The London Magazine. Mr. Kingston works in frontier market investment and is a Director of Devonport Capital.”
