The statement further revealed details about both Gabriella and Thomas, saying: “Lady Gabriella (known as ‘Ella by those close to her’) is a Senior Director at Branding Latin America, a brand-positioning platform that specialises in the region. She is also a writer and contributes to The London Magazine. Mr. Kingston works in frontier market investment and is a Director of Devonport Capital.”

According to People magazine, Thomas has been involved with another well-known name within the royal family – he previously dated the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, Pippa Middleton. They ended things in 2011 but have remained friends over the years.
