Lady Gabriella Windsor’s husband Thomas Kingston, 45, DIED from a ‘traumatic head wound’ and a gun was found near his body


Lady Gabriella Windsor’s husband Thomas Kingston died from a ‘traumatic head wound’ and a gun was found near his body in an outbuilding of his parents’ Cotswolds home, an inquest has heard. 

Thomas Kingston, 45, was found at his family’s country mansion on Sunday evening and a post mortem has revealed the cause of death, Gloucestershire Coroner’s Court was Friday told.

Who Found Him Dead?

His father found him on forcing entry to a locked building after Mr Kingston had earlier visited for lunch with his parents, senior coroner Katy Skerrett said.

Police and paramedics were called to the scene after a member of the family made a 999 call. Police said Mr Kingston’s death was not suspicious.

His widow Lady Windsor paid tribute to her husband in a joint statement with his family, describing him as an ‘exceptional man who lit up the lives of all who knew him’ – and called his death a ‘great shock to the whole family’.

Buckingham Palace previously announced Mr Kingston, 45, died suddenly last Sunday at an address in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire.

Paramedics were called to the large, detached home at about 6pm.

Court Statement

Opening the inquest today at Gloucestershire Coroner’s Court, senior coroner Katy Skerrett said: ‘I can confirm I have received evidence of identification of the deceased in written format, which complies with Rule 23 of the Coroner’s Rules 2013.

‘That evidence is sufficient for identification, and I can thereby confirm the deceased is indeed Thomas Henry Robin Kingston, 45, whose home address is in London.
