Also, the weather will probably be better in May.


It's been said the senior royals probably won't attend, but I do think the Cambridges may.


(I wouldn't even invite the Sussexes, after they excluded Harry's cousins from their own wedding. But perhaps Gabriella has a forgiving nature?)

I would expect all the Kents to attend. Any Mountbatten-Windsors will depend on their personal relationship with the couple. The fsct that prince and princess Michael of Kent live in Kensington Palace might mean that some of their royal neighbours will attend.

Is it known who Gabriella’s godparents are? I can’t remember.

I think it's very likely that either one or both of Maud and Isabella will be bridesmaids if Gabriella chooses to have a young bridal party. I've also read that she and her brother Freddie are friends with the Cambridges, so perhaps either one of George or Charlotte will also be in the bridal party though I think we're more likely to see them at Eugenie and Jack's wedding.

George and Maud go to school together; they'd look very cute at the wedding!
But perhaps she won't have children at all.

She's not wearing an engagement ring, how strange.

I wish people wouldn't pose with dead animals, especially magnificent creatures like lions. It makes me feel quite ill.

We couldn't see her left hand on the engagement photos. She most likely would have shown the ring had she been wearing one. These seem to be the first pictures after the engagement announcement.

But if Tom proposed in August, they've had two months to select the ring.
So it is odd that they haven't.

Perhaps they both feel a ring isn't what they want. They may have something else more personal to them to denote an engagement.

Perhaps. She may have chosen not to wear it that evening or if it's bespoke one it could take a bit of time.

I really hope that at least a few of the senior royals attend and don't snub Gabriella's wedding, like they did her brother's.

(I heard it was because they don't much like Princess Michael, and wanted to distance themselves from Freddy because of the press about his drug use.)


But Gabriella hasn't been involved in scandal (other then that very old article from her sleazy ex-boyfriend) and Tom Kingston is known to be discrete and very private.

It really wasn't very nice for no one except Eugenie from the Queen's immediate family to turn up at Freddie's wedding IMO. He'd dabbled in a bit of coke many years before he married but he never had a drug problem so I don't think that was the reason they didn't go. Tara Palmer-Tomkinson had a serious addiction and was still invited to William's wedding after all. I hope for better at Ella's.

We do not know what led to virtually no attendance from the "core" BRF at Freddie 's wedding. It could be any or a combination of scheduling, "disapproval " in some form, lack of a close relationship, dislike of the groom's mother....
