An investigation has been opened regarding Thomas Kingston’s death.

“Please be advised that HM senior coroner for Gloucestershire, Ms Katy Skerrett, will conduct the opening of the inquest into the death of Mr Thomas Henry Robin Kingston at 2pm Friday, March 1, 2024 at the Gloucestershire Coroner’s Court,” a court official told Us Weekly in a statement on Thursday, February 29.

Thomas, who was married to Lady Gabriella Kingston, died on Sunday, February 25, at the age of 45.

“We were called by the ambulance service at 6.25pm on Sunday with a report of the death of a 45-year-old man at an address in the Cotswolds,” Gloucestershire Police said in a statement to Hello! at the time. “The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”

Gabriella is the daughter of the Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, cousins of the late Queen Elizabeth II. Gabriella is a second cousin of King Charles III.

“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,” a statement on behalf of Charles, 75, and wife Queen Camilla read. “In particular, Their Majesties send their most heartfelt thoughts and prayers to Gabriella and to all the Kingston family.”

Thomas previously dated Princess Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa Middleton. He got engaged to Gabriella in August 2018 on the Isle of Sark, which is located in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy, France. They wed one year later in May 2019 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

For their wedding, Gabriella wore a custom dress crafted by Italian designer Luisa Beccaria.

“She’s such a modern girl,” Beccaria told Vogue in 2019. “She’s very elegant and terribly bright. She works hard. [For her wedding gown,] she didn’t want to go too much into the past and do something so formal. We tried to incorporate a little bit of tradition, though. She wanted to be spontaneous. She didn’t want too much volume in the dress, so it’s quite skinny in the front, which helps to show her real figure and body.”

St George’s Chapel also hosted Gabriella’s cousins Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie’s respective weddings to Meghan Markle and Jack Brooksbank later that year.
