It’s a special moment for any mum and as Princess Michael of Kent arrived to see her only daughter, Lady Gabriella Windsor, get married, she looked as if her emotions might get the better of her. Wearing lightest lavender and silver, Princess Michael was clearly relishing every moment as she stepped into St. George’s Chapel, Windsor, as mother of the bride.
And if everyone wants to know what the bride will wear for her wedding, then her mum’s pick is nearly always second on the list of must see outfits. Princess Michael, known for her sense of style, went for lavender. On a slightly chilly May morning, her dress with pleated skirt was kept under wraps beneath a textured coat in pale silver with three quarter length puffed sleeves worn with long silver suede gloves. Princess Michael chose a large, silver pill box style hat with feather detail to complete her outfit.
The princess arrived for the ceremony on the arm of her son, Lord Frederick Windsor, and the two took their seats shortly before the arrival of the bride who walked down the aisle with her father, Prince Michael of Kent. Lady Gabriella chose a bespoke gown by Luisa Beccaria for her big day and wore the same fringe tiara her mother and her paternal aunt, Princess Alexandra, chose for their marriage celebrations. She carried cream and pale coral flowers including a special rose named ‘Ella’ in her honour.
Lady Gabriella married Thomas Kingston at a noon ceremony at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor with many members of the Royal Family in attendance. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were guests of honour and were seen chatting happily afterwards with the Duke of Sussex. The Duke of Cambridge is in London to attend the FA Cup Final.
Lady Gabriella and her husband posed for photographers following their marriage before joining their guests for a reception at Frogmore House, Windsor.
