Lady Gabriella Windsor wedding: Similar to Princess Eugenie’s in this way

Lady Gabriella Windsor is the daughter of Queen Elizabeth II’s first cousin, Prince Michael of Kent, 76.

Her father and mother, Princess Michael of Kent, live in Kensington Palace.

Full name Gabriella Marina Alexandra Ophelia, she will be marrying her financier fiance at St George’s Chapel in a royal wedding.

She became engaged to Tom Kingston in August 2018 on the Isle of Sark.

An expert has revealed one way in which the wedding will be similar to Princess Eugenie’s.

Vaishali Shah, from Ananya Cards, weighed in on the stationery for Lady Gabriella Windsor’s wedding.

She said: “We expect the wedding invitation to include the crest of Windsor Castle, similar to the wedding invitations sent out by Princess Eugenie.

“The colour palette is likely to be a simple black and white palette offset with metallic influences.

“The invitations will be printed on a heavy weight card, typically 700 – 900gsm cardstock.

“We believe that the stationery will be elegantly contemporary.”

But what about the invitations for the reception? The expert suggests these will be different.

She added: “For the wedding reception, the evening party invites can be less formal and more quirky than the wedding invites.

“There may be a hand drawn caricature of the couple or of the venue. Harry and Meghan had a hand drawn illustration of their venue for their evening reception.

“As we expect Lady Gabriella Windsor to use seasonal flowers for her wedding, she could incorporate these flowers – such as roses, peonies and sweet peas – into her wedding reception stationery (for example her menus and place cards).

“Using delicate pretty flowers in her stationery would be perfect for a Springtime wedding.”

However, Lady Gabriella will defy royal wedding trends adopted by Eugenie and Meghan Markle in another key way. 

Bernadette Chapman, Founder of The UK Alliance of Wedding Planners and Business Coach says told that Lady Gabriella’s wedding would be different in a number of ways.

She said: “Looking at both Lady Gabriella and her fiancé it is my opinion they will opt for a very classical and understated wedding.

“I don’t see this wedding as being ostentatious, on the contrary I see the design as more a timeless affair.”
