Who is Lady Gabriella Windsor?

Lady Gabriella Windsor, known affectionately as 'Ella' is the daughter of Prince Michael of Kent who is the Queen's cousin.

This makes Lady Gabriella the Queen's cousin once removed and a close relative of Prince's William, Harry and their dad Prince Charles.

Despite being the daughter of a Prince and Princess she cannot use that title which is why she holds the title 'Lady' and her brother holds the title Lord Frederick Windsor.

Where in line to the throne is she?

She is on the list of those in line to the throne, although very far down at number 50! Her father is number 46th in line to the throne and the recent birth of Prince Louis bumped them down a place.
