After two royal weddings in 2018, another member of the Queen's family is getting married at Windsor Castle on May 18. See every incredible moment of the celebration here.

THE ANNOUNCEMENT:

Just weeks before Princess Eugenie was 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 also 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 specializes 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:

Ella's wedding took place on Saturday, May 18, 2019, just one day before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first wedding anniversary. The wedding started at 12 p.m. and was conducted by the Dean of Windsor.

THE TIARA:

Gabriella chose a Russian fringe style diamond tiara, often called the Kent City of London Fringe tiara, to complete her wedding day look. This tiara has a special connection for Gabriella: it was worn by her mother, Princess Michael of Kent, and her grandmother, Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, on their wedding days.

THE DRESS:


The photos of Ella arriving at the church have surfaced, and the bride is wearing a stunning white lace gown by Italian designer Luisa Beccaria, which she paired with a statement veil and a pale yellow bouquet.

THE GUESTS:


Several senior members of the royal family, including the Queen, Prince Philip, Princess Anne, Prince Harry, and Princess Beatrice were in attendance at the nuptials.

THE VENUE:

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

IT WAS A PRIVATE EVENT.

There was no carriage procession or members of the public invited into the grounds of the castle.

In addition to the Queen and other members of the royal family, who might be in attendance, Duchess Kate's sister Pippa was also in attendance. 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 at Pippa's wedding to James Matthews in May of 2017.

THE RECEPTION:

The happy couple and their guests reportedly continued the celebration at a reception at Frogmore House. Much like Meghan and Eugenie, she reportedly changed wedding dresses for the party.

THE CAKE:

Baker Fiona Cairns, who made Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding cake, created Ella's wedding cake as well. The confection featured three different flavors: fruit cake, Victoria sponge and lemon Limoncello sponge.
