Kingston, a member by marriage of Britain's royal family, who was the husband of Lady Gabriella Kingston and former boyfriend of Kate Middleton's younger sister, Pippa, was tragically found dead at his parents' home located in a Cotswolds village on Sunday.

Katy Skerrett, the senior coroner for Gloucestershire, said his body was found in an outbuilding.

"Mr Kingston was visiting his parents home in the Cotswolds on 25 February. He ate lunch with his parents," Skerrett said. "His father went out to walk the dogs. On his return, Mr Kingston was not in the house."

"After approximately 30 minutes, his mother went to look for him. His father forced entry into an outbuilding when he couldnt gain entry. Mr Kingston was found inside with a catastrophic head injury. A gun was present at the scene."

The family made the emergency call. Skerrett added, "Police are satisfied the death is not suspicious."

Kingston's relationship with Pippa had ended long before around 2011, but they remained friends.
