Be prepared for yet another royal wedding at Windsor Castle. Lady Gabriella Windsor, the latest member of the royal family to get engaged, will marry next spring in a familiar venue: St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The future bride (known as “Ella” to close friends) and fiancé Thomas Kingston will follow in the footsteps of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who married at the same location last May. Months later in October, Princess Eugenie wed Jack Brooksbank in the same historic church, though the decor was moderately different and more autumnal to reflect the season.
Just like Harry and Meghan, however, People reports that Lady Gabriella will be hosting her evening reception at the storied Frogmore House, a short distance away from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s future home, Frogmore Cottage.
“It will be a private wedding for family and friends,” a source at Buckingham Palace told the magazine. This means that the televised, live-streamed specials we’ve grown accustomed to within the last year will not be the case for the pending nuptials.
Gabriella, 37, is the daughter of both Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, while her future husband works in finance. The palace announced her engagement news in September. “Lady Gabriella (known as ‘Ella’) is a Senior Director at Branding Latin America, a brand-positioning platform that specializes in the region,” the Buckingham Palace statement read. “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.”
Kingston proposed while the couple was enjoying a vacation on the Isle of Sark.
