British royalty, known both professionally and personally as Ella Windsor, she is an English freelance feature writer, and the only daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent (née Baroness Marie-Christine von Reibnitz).
Her paternal great-grandparents were King George V and Queen Mary. Her maternal grandparents are Baron Günther Hubertus von Reibnitz and Countess Maria Anna Szapáry of Muraszombath and Szapár.
Lady Gabriella has an older brother, Lord Frederick Windsor, born on 6 April 1979. Her father is a cousin of Queen Elizabeth II and so Lady Gabriella is a first cousin once removed of the Queen. She is also related to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, since he and her paternal grandmother, the late Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, were first cousins. That is, Lady Gabriella and Prince Philip are first cousins, twice removed. She is in the line of succession to the British throne.
Prince Michael's marriage to a Roman Catholic debarred him from succession to the British Throne under the provisions of the Act of Settlement 1701. However, Lady Gabriella (like her brother, Lord Frederick) was brought up in the Anglican Communion and consequently retains her place in the line of succession.
Lady Gabriella was educated at Downe House School in Cold Ash, Berkshire. In May 2004, Lady Gabriella graduated from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, with a BA degree in Comparative Literature. In 2012, she obtained an MPhil degree in Social Anthropology from Linacre College, Oxford.
