Sark link, but Baby Archie unlikely to be at wedding

News | Published:

A ROYAL WEDDING with a special connection to Sark will be attended by the Queen.

Lady Gabriella Windsor, the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, will marry Thomas Kingston in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, on Saturday 18 May.

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

It will be the third royal wedding in the 15th-century St George Chapel in less than a year, following the star-studded nuptials of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex last May and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank in October.

Buckingham Palace said the monarch would be joined by other members of the royal family, but the other royal attendees have not yet been revealed.

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

Lady Gabriella works as an arts and travel director for brand company Branding Latin America, based in Knightsbridge, London.

Mr Kingston is a director of Devonport Capital, which specialises in providing finance for companies in ‘frontier economies’, and is a close friend of Pippa Middleton.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are unlikely to attend after the birth of their son.

In his first public appearance, baby Archie was swaddled in a white merino wool shawl made by G H Hurt & Son.

Harry and Meghan shared pictures of their first photocall with their baby son on the @SussexRoyal Instagram account.

‘The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share their first public moment as a family,’ the post said.


‘They are so incredibly grateful for the warm wishes and support they’ve received from everyone around the world, since welcoming their son two days ago.’

The post included one colour shot of the couple walking into St George’s Hall, Windsor Castle, with Harry carrying his son in his arms, and two black and white images of the family during their appearance, taken by Chris Allerton for @SussexRoyal.

The couple yesterday said that the baby has been named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. He is seventh in line to the throne.
