Lady Gabriella Windsor stunned on her wedding day — just like Meghan Markle did exactly one year ago!

Gabriella, the 38-year-old daughter of one of Queen Elizabeth‘s cousins, Prince Michael of Kent, wed Thomas Kingston on Saturday in a very similar fashion to Meghan and Prince Harry on May 19, 2018. Like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Lady Gabriella walked down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle with many members of the royal family present.

Ella, as she’s known to friends, walked down the aisle in a stunning lace wedding dress with a bespoke design by Luisa Beccaria. The blush gown, which was embroidered with flowers and embellishments, got its color from all the layers of tulle and organdy beneath the lace, which created the body of the gown. Her romantic veil was also made from layers of tulle and covered with embroidered flowers.

In a sweet nod to family tradition, she also wore a  Russian Fringe style diamond tiara, which was also worn by her grandmother, HRH Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, and her mother, HRH Princess Michael of Kent, on their wedding days.

For her evening reception at Frogmore House, Meghan changed into a second wedding dress — this one, a bit more revealing than her first.

The second dress, designed by Stella McCartney, is “a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe,” according to a statement from the palace. The dress features a high, halter neck, with an open back and a train that Meghan carried as she walked to a blue Jaguar that would carry her and Prince Harry to their reception.

She accessorized her look with a pair of heels from one of her favorite footwear brands — Aquazurra — that are “made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted in baby blue,” according to the palace. She also wore a pair of diamond drop earrings.

The two dresses had one common thread: simplicity. Both dresses lacked lace or any other other embellishments.

  • The couple will also follow in Meghan and Harry’s footsteps by having their reception at Frogmore House. However, the party is set for the afternoon rather than the evening.

    In a sweet surprise, Harry also attended the ceremony, although Meghan stayed at home with their newborn son Archie Harrison.
