The first look at Lady Gabriella Windsor's wedding dress is here (and it is absolutely stunning)
Almost a year to the day after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot, there's another royal wedding taking place at Windsor Castle today.
Lady Gabriella Windsor is marrying Thomas Kingston in St. George's Chapel today - the same place where the Sussexes wed, as well as where Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank said 'I do' in October.
The bride, the daughter of the Queen's cousin Prince Michael of Kent, arrived at the chapel this afternoon in a stunning bespoke Luisa Beccaria gown.
The blush-and-white gown was made of lace, embroidered with flowers and embellishments. The slight rosy hue came from the layers of tulle and organdie underneath the lace.
The skirts fanned out into a long train, with her veil made from layers of white tulle, together with embroidered flowers.
She accented the look with a Russian Fringe style diamond tiara. It was also worn by her grandmother, HRH Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, and her mother, HRH Princess Michael of Kent, on their wedding days.
Her bouquet included a creamy ivory ‘Ella’ rose by David Austin, which was named for the bride, and myrtle.
Other flowers incorporated included Juliet roses, Lily of the Valley and white and apricot sweet peas.
According to the Royal Family, the Bridesmaid and Pageboy outfits were also designed by Luisa Beccaria.
A statement on the official website says:
"Bridesmaids wore cream dresses with blush underlays and sashes, with flower rings in their hair to echo the bridal bouquet.
"Pageboys wore cream shirts and knickerbockers. Their shoes were by Papouelli."
The 38-year-old, who is the daughter of one of Queen Elizabeth's cousins, Prince Michael of Kent, and Tom announced their engagement last year.

After the ceremony at St George’s Chapel the newlyweds and their guests will then make their way to the afternoon reception at Frogmore House as it has "personal resonance" for the couple.
Gabriella and Tom got engaged in August last year with Tom proposing during a trip to the Isle of Sark.
Buckingham Palace said in a short statement at the time:
"Prince and Princess Michael of Kent are delighted to announce the engagement of their daughter Lady Gabriella Windsor to Mr Thomas Kingston.
"The engagement took place in August; Mr Kingston proposed on the Isle of Sark."
