Lady Gabriella, the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, is due to marry Thomas Kingston in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

The ceremony will begin at noon, conducted by the Dean of Windsor, the Right Reverend David Conner.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also unlikely to attend following the recent birth of their son Archie.

Lady Gabriella, 38, who is known as Ella, had been dating Mr Kingston for a number of years when he proposed last summer.

Her parents married in 1978 and she has one older sibling, her brother Lord Frederick, known as Freddie, who hit the headlines after admitting to using drugs at university.

Prior to her current relationship, Lady Gabriella dated journalist Aatish Taseer, who wrote a tell-all Vanity Fair article earlier this year which claimed they swam naked in the Buckingham Palace pool.

The groom, 40, is a director of Devonport Capital, which specialises in providing finance for companies in “frontier economies”.
