Friends Respond to Sudden Death of British Royal Thomas Kingston at 45: ‘Utterly Shocking’

British Royal Family member Thomas Kingston, the husband of Lady Gabriella “Ella” Windsor, was found dead on Sunday in Gloucestershire, England.

The healthy British royal was just 45 years old when he died unexpectedly.

According to the New York Post, authorities noted that there’s no foul play suspected and the death is not “suspicious.”

However, the cause of death hasn’t been revealed.

A friend of the couple opened up about them in a recent interview, noting that they saw them “happy and positive” at a February 21 National Gallery event in London.

“They seemed happy and positive as ever,” the friend reportedly told Daily Mail.

“Ella was particularly chatty.”

Kingston’s sudden death understandably stunned the British Royal Family.

Kingston was the son-in-law of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.

Another friend of the royal couple added, “It’s utterly shocking.

“None of us saw it coming. I cannot understand it.”

The Daily Mail noted:

Lady Gabriella, 42, who is 56th in line to the throne, and Mr Kingston were married for nearly five years, having tied the knot at St George’s Chapel at Windsor in May 2019.

Mr Kingston is survived by his father Martin Kingston KC, his mother Jill Mary Kingston, and his sisters, Joanna Connolly and Emma Murray.

Kingston and Windsor were reportedly last photographed together on Valentine’s Day during their attendance of the “400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s First Folio attended by Queen Camilla.”

Given her lesser proximity to Buckingham Palace, Lady Gabriella is not a “working member” of the Royal Family.

However, it was reported that Buckingham Palace will support Gabriella’s family and their tragic loss.

A spokesman for Their Majesties released a statement on the tragic situation.

The statement describes Kingston as a “much-loved” member of the Royal Family.

“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,” the statement read.

It added, “In particular, Their Majesties send their most heartfelt thoughts and prayers to Gabriella and to all the Kingston family.”

Buckingham Palace released a second statement on behalf of Gabriella and other family members, writing:

“It is with the deepest sorrow that we announce the death of Thomas Kingston, our beloved husband, son, and brother.

“Tom was an exceptional man who lit up the lives of all who knew him.

“His death has come as a great shock to the whole family and we ask you to respect our privacy as we mourn his passing.”
