Lady Gabriella Windsor paired Luisa Beccaria wedding dress with £3million 'iconic' tiara

Lady Gabriella Windsor looked stunning on her wedding day to Thomas Kingston three years ago in 2019. Gabriella, who is the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, married Thomas Kingston three years ago at Windsor Castle.

The bride looked stunning as she arrived for the ceremony, wearing a gown by Luisa Beccaria with an elaborate veil.

As Gabriella stepped out of the chapel, fans got the very first glimpse at her royal wedding tiara. Lady 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 to Gabriella. But what was it? Gabriella’s wedding tiara was also worn by her mother, Princess Michael of Kent, and her grandmother, Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, on their wedding days.

Princess Michael’s wedding was held on June 30, 1978, and the Princess, who is also known as Marie Christine, wore the tiara to a ball that was held after her wedding ceremony, rather than to the entire affair.

The Kent City of London Fringe tiara was originally given to Marie Christine’s mother-in-law, Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, by the city of London on her wedding day in 1934.

Eventually, Marina’s son Prince Michael inherited the tiara when she died in 1968.

Gabriella also could have worn the Kent Pearl Festoon Tiara, another favourite design of her mother’s.

Princess Michael has worn the tiara on a number of occasions through the years.
