Martin Kingston KC is a well-known planning law barrister while his wife is a trustee of the Nadezhda Charitable Trust.

The 71-year-old had been heavily involved in work relating to Ukraine and has also run conferences for women in Ethiopia.

Mr Kingston, 74, was elected to the National Synod in 2016.

Buckingham Palace said it was supporting Mr Kingston's devastated family despite the couple not being working royals, which is testament to just how well liked Lady Gabriella, often known just as 'Ella', is in the highest royal circles. 

Mr Kingston wed Lady Gabriella, 42, in 2019 in a ceremony attended by the late Queen and Prince Philip and a host of other senior royals.

In a statement released yesterday, a spokesman for Their Majesties said: 'The King and The Queen have been informed of Thomas's death and join Prince and Princess Michael of Kent and all those who knew him in grieving a much-loved member of the family.

'In particular, Their Majesties send their most heartfelt thoughts and prayers to Gabriella and to all the Kingston family'.

Last summer, Lady Gabriella, a writer, and Mr Kingston, who during his previous career with the Foreign Office was posted to Iraq, were pictured enjoying the company of the King, her second cousin, and Queen Camilla at Royal Ascot.

In happier times, the two couples were seen laughing and joking as they cheered on their respective horses at the event - with Lady Gabriella's relaxed, chatty nature, which has long endeared her to the senior royals, clear to see.

Lady Gabriella had been dating Mr Kingston for a number of years when he proposed while they were on the island of Sark in 2018. 

He was a director of Devonport Capital, which specialises in providing finance for companies in 'frontier economies'.

The Bristol University graduate worked in Baghdad, Iraq, according to the Telegraph, working to procure the release of hostages after joining the Diplomatic Missions Unit of the Foreign Office.

At the couple's wedding on May 18th 2019, the guest list proved the esteem in which Lady Ella is held by the royal family, with the late Queen and Prince Philip joined by other senior royals including Prince Harry, who took time away from his then newborn son Archie.

In the days following her husband's shock death, Lady Gabriella, who studied at both Brown University in the US and the University of Oxford - and boasts degrees in Comparative Literature and Social Anthropology, is likely to turn to her closest family.

Her parents, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, married in 1978 and she has one older sibling, Lord Frederick 'Freddie' Windsor.

Freddie, 44, and his wife Sophie Winkleman, 43, half-sister of Strictly presenter Claudia, live close by after re-locating back to the UK from California.

In an interview with Tatler magazine in December, Sophie said she loved 'all the Kents', suggesting the family share a close relationship.

Her parents, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, enjoyed a close relationship with their son-in-law.

The couple put on a brave face yesterday as they attended a memorial for King Constantine of Greece, hours before news of their son-in-law's death broke.
