About Lady Gabriella Windsor; . ◼ Lady Gabriella "Ella" Windsor; born 23 April 1981) is an English freelance feature writer, and the only daughter of Prince Michael of Kent and his wife, née Baroness Marie-Christine von Reibnitz. . ◼ Her paternal great-grandparents were King George V and Queen Mary.

Her father is a cousin of Queen Elizabeth II and so Gabriella is a first cousin once removed of the Queen. She is also related to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, since he and her paternal grandmother, Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, were first cousins. That is, Gabriella and Prince Philip are first cousins, twice removed. . ◼ Prince Michael's marriage to a Roman Catholic debarred him from succession to the British Throne under the provisions of the Act of Settlement 1701. This was reversed by the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, which removed the disqualification of those who marry Roman Catholics. Gabriella (like her brother Frederick) was brought up in the Church of England and consequently retains her place in the line of succession. . ◼ Gabriella was educated at Downe House School in Cold Ash, Berkshire.

Pese a que Pippa, quien espera la pronta llegada de su primer hijo con su esposo James Matthews, y Kingston culminaron la relación, siguieron siendo amigos. De hecho, Kingston y Lady Gabriella asistieron a la boda de Pippa en mayo de 2017.

In an interview with Daily Mail, Lord Ivar opens up about struggling with his sexuality during his 16-year marriage to ex-wife, Penny, who he shares three children with. Following their divorce 8 years ago, the former couple are still friends with Penny even scheduled to give her ex-husband away when he marries James in the private chapel on his magnificent country estate in Devon. – “It makes me feel quite emotional. I'm really very touched,” Penny said of the honour. And, of course, the couple have the blessing of his entire family including lifelong friend, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex – aka Queen Elizabeth’s youngest son – and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex. – “Sophie and Edward know of our plans and are really excited for us,” says Lord Ivar, adding that sadly the royal couple will not be able to attend the wedding due to prior engagements.” – The couple will tie the knot in a small, private ceremony in front of 120 family members and close friends. #royalfamily #queenelizabeth #jamescoyle #gaywedding #lordivarmountbatten
