It’s the next big royal wedding, but the upcoming nuptials of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston have been rocked by speculation as to whether Princess Eugenie will show up.

Gabriella, who is the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, will wed this Saturday, UK time, with the palace announcing the following statement: ‘The wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Mr Thomas Kingston will take place at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on Saturday 18th May 2019.’
While the guest list will include a who’s who of royals, including Her Majesty the Queen, British newspaper the Daily Express has intriguingly flagged the possibility that Eugenie might, mysteriously, be a no show.
The exact relationship between the women – who both chose St George’s Chapel as the venue for their weddings - remains shrouded in speculation, but the Express snippily notes that ‘just like Princess Eugenie, Lady Gabriella is a non-working Royal, so both are able to dedicate their time to a career path of their choice.’
Whether a possible no show will be down to personal rivalry or simply clashing diaries, is unknown. But one thing is for sure – Lady Gabriella’s wedding will not have most of the pomp and ceremony that made Eugenie’s such a spectacle.
Unlike Eugenie, Gabriella’s wedding will not include a royal carriage procession around Windsor castle.
