Lady Gabriella’s tiara shimmers beneath her veil as she arrives at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle
Lady Gabriella Windsor wore a Russian Fringe-style diamond tiara worn by her grandmother and mother on their wedding days as she married Thomas Kingston.
The stunning gems of the tiara shimmered beneath Lady Gabriella’s long white veil as she beamed on arrival at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
It was worn by her grandmother, Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, and her mother, Princess Michael of Kent, on their wedding days in 1934 and 1978 respectively.

Lady Gabriella’s tiara was accompanied by a lace gown by Italian designer Luisa Beccaria, who designed the six-metre long veil which flowed over the band.
Her blonde hair was styled in elegant curls and her gown was embroidered with flowers and embellishments – layers of blush-coloured tulle and organdie created the body of the wedding gown under the lace, fanning out for a long train.
