After two royal weddings in 2018, another member of the Queen's family is getting married in 2019. Here's what we know so far about Lady Gabriella Windsor's nuptials:

THE ANNOUNCEMENT

Just weeks before Princess Eugenie is set to walk down the aisle, Buckingham Palace announced that Lady Gabriella Windsor, the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, and a first cousin once removed of the Queen, is getting married.

“Prince and Princess Michael of Kent are delighted to announce the engagement of their daughter Lady Gabriella Windsor to Mr Thomas Kingston," reads a statement from Buckingham Palace.

The happy couple got engaged in August when Kingston proposed on the Isle of Sark, a small island in the English Channel, off the coast of Normandy.

Ella, as Lady Gabriella is known, is not a working royal, but she's sometimes seen at large family events like the annual Trooping the Colour parade.

According to the Palace, she currently works as "a Senior Director at Branding Latin America, a brand-positioning platform that specialises in the region." She is also a writer. Her fiancé Thomas "works in frontier market investment and is a Director of Devonport Capital."

THE DATE:

Buckingham Palace confirmed has confirmed that she will be getting married on Saturday, May 18, 2019, just one day before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first wedding anniversary.

THE VENUE

Like Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie this year, Gabriella will wed in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

IT WILL BE A PRIVATE EVENT.

There will reportedly be no carriage procession or members of the public invited into the grounds of the castle.

That said, given that Ella is closely related to the Queen, we can expect to see some members of the royal family in attendance at her nuptials, though at this point, it is unclear exactly who will be there. We could also see Duchess Kate's sister Pippa. Before he started dating Ella, Kinston and Pippa were an item, but they appear to have broken up on good terms. Both Lady Gabriella and Kingston were in attendance at Pippa's wedding to James Matthews in May of 2017.

THE RECEPTION

The happy couple and their guests will reportedly continue the celebration at a reception at Frogmore House.

We'll continue to update this as we know more details about the royal celebration.
