There’s no denying that 2018 was the year of royal weddings.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in the most talked about TV event of the year on May 19, and Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank just a few months later.
Now, there’s another royal wedding on the cards — but there’s a reason you probably haven’t heard about it.
Lady Gabriella Windsor, the daughter of the Queen’s first cousin Prince Michael of Kent, will marry Thomas Kingston at St George’s Chapel on May 18, 2019 — the same venue where Harry and Meghan were married.
Known as “Ella,” Lady Gabriella studied at Oxford University and is reportedly a branding director specializing in arts and travel.
Her father’s official website states that she also currently works as a freelance journalist.
Kingston, meanwhile, works in finance, and reportedly once dated Pippa Middleton.
It seems Lady Gabriella’s ceremony will be nothing like her relative Harry’s.
The guest list is yet to be revealed, but royal expert Robert Jobson told The Express that it’s unlikely the Queen will attend.
Since Buckingham Palace announced the couple’s engagement in December, the royals have remained tight-lipped about the ceremony, leading many to believe it will remain a private affair.
Town & Country Magazine reported that no members of the public will be invited to the castle grounds, and there will apparently be no carriage procession, either.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle invited 600 people to watch their wedding at St George’s Chapel, while over 2,000 members of the public were selected by ballot to watch from the grounds.
The wedding became the BBC’s most watched television event of 2018 — estimates suggest that as many as 1.9 billion people worldwide tuned in to watch the couple get married.
