There's a lot on the agenda for the royal family this upcoming spring, from the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first child to the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor. Yep, that's right—there's another set of royal nuptials on the horizon, and it already seems to bear a lot of similarities to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's (what trendsetters!).

For starters, Lady Gabriella, the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, will wed fiancé Thomas Kingston at St. George's Chapel. This marks the spot where Harry and Meghan, as well as Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, said "I do" this year (popular venue). But keep in mind that the royal family, sticklers for tradition, have mostly wed at one of four famous churches over the past few centuries, meaning there's really only so many options that would meet Queen Elizabeth's approval.

But taking a major cue from Harry and Meghan, Lady Gabriella plans to host her reception at Frogmore as well, notes royal correspondent Rebecca English via Twitter. Prince Charles hosted an evening reception for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Frogmore House following their May 19 nuptials, and the pair plans to raise their family at Frogmore Cottage within the Queen's sprawling Windsor Estate. However, with rumors at the time of an Elton John performance and Idris Elba DJ'ing at Meghan and Harry's reception, the next royal bride-to-be has big shoes to fill at the same venue.

While Lady Gabriella's choice of reception locale feels a bit...copied, she has a few meaningful ties to St. George's Chapel. According to English, the royal was actually born on St. George's Day, and fondly reminisces on past Christmases spent within the Windsor spot. And quite unlike both her royal wedding predecessors, she plans to keep her big day on the smaller side. English also adds that the bride's family will be footing the bill.

The official wedding date has yet to be announced, but we're interested to see what, if any, other components of Harry and Meghan's wedding that Lady Gabriella may incorporate into her own, especially in the dress department.
