Don’t put away your best hat just yet, there’s set to be another royal wedding in 2019.

Lady Gabriella Windsor, 37, daughter of Prince and Princess of Michael of Kent, will wed her fiancé Mr Thomas Kingston in late spring, according to Hello! magazine. Buckingham Palace announced the engagement back in September. 

The nuptials will take place at the same venue as the marriages of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank – St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. This will be followed by an afternoon reception at Frogmore House.

A royal source confirmed to the Hello! that the occasion would be “for family and friends, and very different” and would be paid for by the bride’s parents. Lady Gabriella’s father is a paternal first cousin of the Queen.

However unlike the previous two royal weddings, it is understood that there will be no carriage procession or members of the public invited inside the castle on the day.

Guests have not yet been confirmed, but they’re likely to include senior members of the royal family.

Although the spring wedding could clash with the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby.
