Thomas Kingston has passed away at age 45, Buckingham Palace just announced.

In a statement on behalf of Lady Gabriella Kingston, Martin and Jill Kingston, Joanna Connolly, and Emma Murray, the Palace shared, "It is with the deepest sorrow that we announce the death of Thomas Kingston, our beloved husband, son and brother. Tom was an exceptional man who lit up the lives of all who knew him. His death has come as a great shock to the whole family and we ask you to respect our privacy as we mourn his passing."

Kingston was found in Gloucestershire on Sunday evening, and emergency services were called to the scene, where he was pronounced dead. An inquest will be held, but there are no suspicious circumstances, T&C understands. It is also understood that Prince William's absence from King Constantine's memorial service today was unconnected to the news of Kingston's passing; Prince and Princess of Michael were in attendance at the service.

According to a Buckingham Palace spokesperson, "The King and The Queen have been informed of Thomas’s death and join Prince and Princess Michael of Kent and all those who knew him in grieving a much-loved member of the family. In particular, Their Majesties send their most heartfelt thought sand prayers to Gabriella and to all the Kingston family." At this point, details of the funeral will not be shared.

Kingston is the son-in-law of Prince Michael of Kent and Princess Michael of Kent, having married Lady Gabriella Windsor in a royal wedding in 2019.

He is survived by his wife, Lady Gabriella, his parents Martin and Jill Kingston, and his sisters, Joanna Connolly and Emma Murray.
