Congratuliations to the couple!
It is surprising learn about Ms. Spears' occupation. It would be safe to assume Ms. Spears will not work for prestigious fashion houses anymore. Prince Rahim is quite handsome.
Hopefully some photos of the ceremony will be released.

Why is it surprising to learn that Prince Rahim is marrying a fashion model? His mother was a model as well.

The Aga Khan Announces the Engagement of His Eldest Son

Aiglemont, France, 26 April 2013 -- His Highness the Aga Khan today announced the engagement of his eldest son, Prince Rahim Aga Khan, to Ms. Kendra Spears of Seattle, Washington, the United States.




The Aga Khan, who is the Spiritual Leader or Imam of the global community of the Shia Ismaili Muslims, said he was delighted to announce the engagement.

Prince Rahim Aga Khan holds a BA from Brown University and an executive management degree from the Navarra Business School in Barcelona, Spain. He is involved in the poverty reduction efforts, notably micro-credit activities, of the Aga Khan Development Network – one of the largest private systems of agencies fostering social, cultural and economic development in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Ms. Spears holds a BA in sociology from the University of Washington in her native Seattle. She has a strong interest in arts and architecture. Ms. Spears has had a highly successful career as a model, working with many of the most prestigious fashion houses.

The couple will be married in a Muslim ceremony. The date of the marriage has not been set yet.

Kendra is gorgeous. It's a shame her modelling career will most likely end after her marriage. She has this 90's supermodel vibe to her.

They do make a very handsome couple.

Since his mother was a model I don't know why people are surprised that he would marry a model......his father did, and Aga Khan III had a French beauty queen as one of his wives.

Ms. Spears is shrewd. It is better to marry well than to rely on a fleeting career of a model.

Tha Aga Khan III was is great grandfather. But you're right, it's a kind of a family tradition...sadly with no happy ending for the most part...

Exactly. Do any of them make it to the five year mark at least?!

They are a beautiful couple for sure, though. ICAM with the poster who said it's a very shrewd move. Modeling careers can be notoriously brief.

True, one should not expect a Golden Wedding anniversary when marrying into that family.

She is likely to convert to Islam ahead of the wedding and it is thought she will take on the title of Princess.

Ms. Spears is all right. She is an American and looks generic to me. It is wonderful that she enjoyed a fruitful career in such capricious industry such fashion.
Personally I like Ai Tominaga for a gracefully regal walk and Freja Beha Erichsen for being a chameleon.
