A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: “The King and The Queen have been informed of Thomas’s death and join Prince and Princess Michael of Kent and all those who knew him in grieving a much-loved member of the family.

Lady Gabriella Kingston, formerly known as Lady Gabriella Windsor, holds the 56th position in the line of succession to the British throne, following her niece, Isabella Windsor.

Born at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London on April 23, 1981, she is the only daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent. Her father, Prince Michael, is a cousin to the late Queen Elizabeth II, and Lady Gabriella had a close relationship with Her Late Majesty throughout her life.

During Queen Elizabeth II’s lying in state in September 2022, Lady Gabriella appeared to collapse when the late monarch’s coffin arrived at Westminster Hall.

Lady Gabriella’s Early Life and Career

Lady Gabriella spent her formative years at Kensington Palace in an apartment funded by Queen Elizabeth II. The family resided there until 2008 when Parliament mandated that Prince and Princess Michael pay the full market-rate amount of £120,000 for the property.

Lady Gabriella pursued studies in Comparative Literature and Social Anthropology at Brown and Oxford universities. While she does not undertake royal duties, she is currently a freelance writer contributing to various publications such as The London Magazine, Conde Nast Traveller, Sustainable First, and Cabana magazine. Lady Gabriella was previously a columnist for HELLO! Magazine.

In addition to her writing pursuits, Lady Gabriella is a singer-songwriter. In 2020, she released two songs, ‘Out of Blue’ and ‘Bam Bam,’ for charity.

Lady Gabriella’s Brother is Lord Frederick Windsor

Prince and Princess Michael of Kent have two children: Lord Frederick Windsor, aged 44, and Lady Gabriella Kingston, aged 42.

Lady Gabriella’s older brother is married to British actress Sophie Winkleman, with whom he tied the knot in a lavish ceremony on September 12, 2009. The couple has two daughters named Maud and Isabella.
