The senior coroner for Gloucestershire, Katy Skerrett, has disclosed that Thomas Kingston, the 45-year-old husband of Lady Gabriella Windsor, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The inquest into Kingston's death, which was opened at Gloucestershire Coroner's Court, provided harrowing details surrounding the incident.

Kingston had lunch with his parents at their Cotswolds home before his father took the dogs for a walk. On returning, Mr. Kingston was not found in the house. Kingston's mother initiated a search, and after approximately 30 minutes, his father forced entry into an outbuilding where Thomas was discovered deceased with a catastrophic head injury. A firearm was found at the scene.

Thomas Kingston, known as Tom, was a committed Christian and had previously worked as a hostage negotiator in Iraq. He studied economic history at the University of Bristol and joined the diplomatic missions unit at the Foreign Office. His sudden death on Sunday, marked as a "great shock to the whole family," was announced by Buckingham Palace.

In a joint statement, Lady Gabriella Windsor and Mr. Kingston's family paid tribute to him as an "exceptional man who lit up the lives of all who knew him." The royal family, including King Charles and Queen Camilla, extended their heartfelt thoughts and prayers to Lady Gabriella and the Kingston family.

The inquest, led by Katy Skerrett, aims to uncover the circumstances surrounding Thomas Kingston's tragic passing.
