Date for 2019 royal wedding ‘revealed’ – and Prince William faces a dilemma

Prince William is believed to be facing a right royal wedding dilemma – for the second time in just two years.

Lady Gabriella Windsor , whose father is the Queen’s first cousin, Prince Michael of Kent, is said to have chosen May 18 as the day for her wedding to businessman Thomas Kingston.

For the second year running, it means that the royal wedding will be held on the same day as the FA Cup Final .

As the President of the Football Association, William is usually on hand to present the trophy to the winning side in the competition.

But this supposed wedding date could mean that he might be faced to miss the final yet again, according to the Daily Mail.

Gabriella was present at William’s wedding to Kate in 2011, and it’s thought he will want to return the favour.

The Queen is also among those expected to attend the wedding, believed to be being held at St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

Prince William faced the same problem last year when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose the FA Cup Final day as the date for their own nuptials.

Meghan and Harry also held their ceremony at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on May 19, 2018 – the same date Chelsea played Manchester United for the coveted trophy.

There was much speculation on how Wills would plan his schedule, and whether he would even try to attend both events.

Eventually, it was decided that William would skip his duties at the game, remaining at the wedding instead.

Harry’s brother was the best man for the Royal Wedding, with around 800 guests attending the cermony.

In a statement at the time, Kensington Palace said: "The Duke’s responsibilities as best man mean that he will not be able to attend the FA Cup."

Of course, this time around, William is likely to have a much less pivotal role in the ceremony.

It’s not yet clear whether the prince will choose his family over his duties with the FA or whether his wife, Kate, will attend with or without her husband by her side.

Gabriella Windsor’s wedding is not going to be televised, according to the Daily Express and it’s also unlikely that there will be a carriage procession following the ceremony.
