|Lady Gabriella Windsor|
|Born||Gabriella Marina Alexandra Ophelia Windsor
23 April 1981
St Mary's Hospital, London, England
|Parent(s)||Prince Michael of Kent
Baroness Marie Christine von Reibnitz
Gabriella Windsor was born at St Mary's Hospital, the teaching hospital of Imperial College London, and has an older brother, Frederick, born on 6 April 1979 in the same hospital. She was educated at Downe House School in Cold Ash, Berkshire. In May 2004, 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.
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. This was reversed by the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, which removed the disqualification of those who marry Roman Catholics. Gabriella (like her brother Frederick) was brought up in the Church of England and consequently has been in the line of succession since birth.
