You might consider yourself something of a royal expert, but even experts let things slip through the cracks. For example, we had no idea that there’s another royal wedding in the works—and it’s coming with plenty of juicy deets.
Lady Gabriella Windsor is getting married to Thomas Kingston next spring…oh, and he happens to be the ex-boyfriend of none other than Pippa Middleton.
But there’s more to it! According to Rebecca English, royal correspondent for The Daily Mail, the two will hold their wedding at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle—the same location as Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank…and Harry and Meghan. Word is, she’ll also hold her reception at Frogmore House. But this isn’t just a case of keeping up with the Joneses: Lady Gabriella was actually born on St. George’s Day. Sentimental much?
Hot goss aside, Lady Gabriella (Ella to her friends) is the daughter of Queen Elizabeth II’s cousin Prince Michael of Kent. (So she’s a great-granddaughter of King George V and Queen Mary.) And while she’s 51st in line to the throne (yikes), you might still recognize her from major royal outings like the Trooping the Colour.
And if you’re worried about the aforementioned, um, situation…Pippa and Kingston remained friends after their 2011 split. In fact, he and Lady Gabriella even attended her wedding in 2017. So it’s cool.
