Hello. I am just as curious about this couple seeing as Gary is of South Pacific Islander descent like me. What I would like to know is how he is received by the other members of the Royal family and how he feels being part of them. It was great to see pictures of them at the Diana Memorial Service.Incidentally, my parents attended the funeral service of the Princess of Wales those ten years ago by invitation of the palace.I've always been more interested in the extended family members as compared to the immediate ones. I suppose that's because we always see Princes William and Harry in the media as well as their first cousins. Her Majesty is a great favourite of mine though.

Worldroots, Lady Davina Lewis:

The Royalist: The Unseen Royals: The Royalist - PHOTO GALLERY: The Unseen Royals (about mid-page)

From what I've seen around the web, it doesn't appear that Gary and Lady Davine have children of their own, Gary has a son from a previous relationship.

I couldn't find much on the girls. It is said that they prefer to keep out of the spotlight and have quiet lives.

The only thing I know of is that Gary and Lady Davina live in New Zealand. When the couple, along with Lady Rose appeared at the Diana Memorial, that was the first picture I had seen of the two sisters since Lady Davina was married. I had never seen a picture of their brother until he and his wife had their first child earlier this year. A very private family of siblings. I have to say good for them.

It was announced at the time of Lady Davina's marriage that she and her husband would be living in London. Did they move to New Zealand later?

Lady Davina, Lady Rose, Gary Lewis, and the Ulsters were all at the trooping in June. I always see all of them at the Trooping event. Lady Rose and Lady Davina crop up on the London social scene here and there. I never remember anything about Davina and Gary moving to NZ. I understand Gary has a young son, but besides this boy from previous marriage, I don't know of the couple having other children. Maybe Davina works in media somehow; her degree from UWE Bristol was in media studies.

I had read in either Majesty or Royalty that Lady Davina and her husband lived in New Zealand, but that could very well be in error as we all know since magazines especially Royalty are prone to mistakes.

Katrianna, I didn't mean to imply that you are wrong about them living in NZ. I think it's possible. I mean, Gary's job is based there, as he is apparently he is owner of a building firm in Auckland. A possibility is that they have a home in NZ while Davina keeps her flat in London because of her home, family, friends being there, allowing her to return whenever she wants to.

I found something interesting. In November 2005, when the NZ All Blacks played against the English Lions, The Queen held a reception for the All Blacks at Buckingham Palace, as the team was touring the UK in advance of the match. HM invited Davina & Gary to the reception on account of the NZ background there.

Profile for Gary and Lady Davina Lewis
Davina's Age: 30 (nickname "Denny")
Approximate Age of Gary Lewis: 37, 38 (was said to be 33 in July 2004)
Gary's son: 13-maybe 14-year-old Ari Lewis (said to be 11 in July 2004)
Gary is a Maori from Gisborne on North Island, NZ who has a career as a renovator and whose father, Larry Lewis, was a "champion shearer" in the 1980s. Gary's mother, Viki (née Carr) Lewis, worked as a maid.
Davina and Gary met in 2000 while on vacation on the island of Bali, Indonesia. Gary owns an Auckland-based company.
Frivolous tidbits: Gary is a keen surfer; his nickname is said to be Gazza. SOURCES: The BBC and The Sydney Morning Herald
The engagement of Gary and Davina was announced from the Gloucesters' office on 26 March 2004. The wedding took place in Kensington Palace on 31 July 2004.
It's funny how the Lewis males' names are Larry, Gary, and Ari.
There is a lot of info. about the Lewis family, from his parents to siblings and uncles, aunts, even grandfather in this Telegraph article by Paul Chapman and Caroline Davies, dated 27 July 2004.

Previously posted to TRF in other threads:

The Duchess and baby daughter (this picture is adorable and so funny but which daughter, I think Rose?) There is no source cited. It was posted by Alexandria on 27 October 2003. --> See Thread
There are many old photos of the Gloucester family throughout the same thread.

No problem. I could very well be mistaken about the information I gave and I would be very glad if someone could or would correct me. I have a horror of giving inaccurate info out so whenever anyone steers me on the right track I very much welcome it. I sometimes take what the media says as truth in my rare moments of insanity!!

Katrianna, I also have heard - more than once - that Lady Davina and her husband have a place in NZ. Whether they live there all the time or if it's more a holiday place.

Well, as I looked back over those articles I posted, I realized that the ones which came out around the time of their marriage indicate that they lived in NZ for some time before marrying, apparently as a quite a middle-class regular couple. One article even went so far as to suggest that the neighborhood in which they live(d) was lower or working middle class, although I'm not sure how that can be, given that Gary Lewis seems to make a decent living on his own and "Denny" is, well, after all she is Lady Davina. I imagine that since they have married they continue to have a home in NZ. Everything known about the company of Lewis indicates that it is an Auckland-based operation. As Bella suggested, perhaps they live there round the year or divide their time between there and Britain, but at the very least, some of their time is passed there.

Lady Rose Windsor engaged to George Gilman: November 2007

Other message boards reporting an announcement from the Duke & Duchess of Gloucester

The British Royals Message Board: Lady Rose Windsor engaged
Everything I write here is my opinion and I mean no offence by it.

I found pictures of Lady Rose and George Gilman from a party in December 2004. The photographer is Dafydd Jones.
Picture 1
Picture 2 (talking to James Tollemache)
Picture 3
The party was at the Baglione Hotel in London and organized by BEAT, a company which Tollemache was then working for.

Well, my memory might be misleading me, but it did occur to me.... that I perhaps saw his name years ago, in 2004 actually, around the time of those pictures, on the list of staff at Beat. Beat is a company that organizes events and PR for high end companies. It was founded by Luca del Bono. The company has changed a lot, though, and has a new website, and a lot of the people working there in 2004 have moved on. So I don't know what Gilman is up to these days. Maybe he stayed on at Beat, maybe not, or maybe he never worked there at all and I am crazy. Sorry I wasn't more help....

Wonderful! Two royal weddings that we can look forward to in 2008 (I assume Rose's wedding will be then)

She'll be known as Lady Rose Gilman once they're married :)
His sense of responsibility is not less than yours or mine. How could we tell right from wrong as simple people in any kind of situation? How could we know that our courage, loyalty and lives were not misused for evil purposes?

There are only two websites (which I know about) that have pics of George Gilman in their database. They are: Dafydd Jones and Don Features (the society photographers Dafydd Jones and Desmond O'Neill). These websites are fairly easy to do searches on. Just type in "George Gilman" and you see all the pictures from the aforementioned party in 2004 which the couple attended.
