If you haven’t noticed, royal family weddings are a seriously huge deal.
While weddings, in general, are a highly celebrated occasion for any family, a royal wedding takes things to a whole new level that one never realize even existed.
Not only is it celebrated by fans young and old across every continent, but everything from the star-studded guest list to the elaborately decorated venue and lavish after parties.
When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot, it was one of the most celebrated and watched weddings to date, closely followed by the wedding of Prince Charles to Diana and the wedding of Prince William to Kate.
Now, another big royal wedding is in the works, but almost no one knows about it because they’ve kept things pretty secretive. If you know anything about the royals, this isn’t standard pre-wedding protocol.
Lady Gabriella Windsor, daughter of Queen Elizabeth’s cousin, Prince Michael of Kent, is set to wed her longtime beau, Thomas Kingston, in just a few short months on May 18, 2019.
Thomas Kingston is no stranger to the ways of royal life. He is said to have previously had a romantic relationship in the past with Duchess Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton.
While this is water long under the bridge, it’s apparent in his behaviors with Lady Gabriella that the two are madly in love and cannot wait to begin life together as husband and wife.
The couple is using the wildly infamous venue or St. George’s Chapel - the very place where Harry and Meghan tied the knot and where Eugenie married Jack.
There’s a pretty specific reason why Lady Gabriella has kept this wedding a lot more under-wraps than her cousins have for theirs. The reason is that it will not be a heavily publicized event and will likely be kept very private from start to finish.
The event is said to be so private that Queen Elizabeth herself is likely to not be in attendance for the ceremony.
We may or may not ever get to see official images of the glowing bride and groom on the most special day of their lives, and that’s okay. Sometimes when you live a life under such mass scrutiny, it’s refreshing to know that they save some of the most intimate moments of their life for times when the press is nowhere to be found. We wish them a lifetime of joy and happiness together!
