I agree. Thanks Little Star for finding all the information. I have really learnt a great deal. I love Princess Zahra's wedding gown. It's absolutely stunning.

Step-grandmother. She was Aga Khan III's fourth wife. Born Yvette Labrousse, a former model and dress maker. She was re-named Om Habibeh & given the title of Mata Salamat (spiritual mother), after marrying Aga Khan III.

She was born the Hon. Joan Yarde-Buller. She was first married to Loel Guiness, divorced him and married Aly Khan. They too split. She married thirdly Viscount Camrose. Not sure if she reverted back to Christianity.

Determined: The Begum wants half of the Aga Khan's £1billion fortune
Hardly a surprise given her track-record and her much married mother's example.

The billionaire racehorse owner and playboy the Aga Khan is being sued for divorce by his wife of six years, German-born former pop singer the Begum Inaara Aga Khan, 41.
She's also a Phd & a lawyer.

The Begum, born Gabriele Thyssen in Frankfurt
No, she wasn't. She was born Gabriele Homey. Thyssen is the last name of one of her step-father's. She took it because it had more clout.

I thought that her mother was a born Thyssen, sister to the late Heinrich (Heini) Thyssen-Bornemizza and real eastate billionaire(sse)

this is what I found on the net about her:

Princess Dr. Gabriele zu Leiningen was born in Frankfurt-am-Main on April
1, 1963 from the marriage of Renate Thyssen to Helmut Friedhelm Homey. The Princess' mother and her present husband Ernest-Theodor Henne, both successful industrialists, live primarily in Germany and in Switzerland. The Princess, who was educated at Salem School on Lake Constance and at L'Ecole de Roches in Normandy, studied law in Munich and Cologne and graduated magna cum laude with a doctorate in International Law in 1990. She speaks English and French in addition to German. Her daughter Theresa (6) from her first marriage to Karl-Emich Prince zu Leiningen will now live with her mother in Switzerland and France.
Princess zu Leiningen is currently a consultant at UNESCO, and the Aga
Khan has requested the Begum to continue, for the time being, her work which focuses on the promotion of the status of women and gender equality. Her interest in Islam arose from her work at UNESCO, and she was also influenced by the work of the world-renowned German Islamic scholar Dr. Annemarie Schimmel. On her conversion to Islam, she and the Aga Khan chose for her the Muslim name Inaara, derived from the Arabic word "Nur", meaning "light".

seeing that she has been educated in Salem, her mum is Renate Thyssen Henne , who was born Renate Kerkhoff. Actually her first fortune she made by the time she was 22 with a product called Seifrisch. In 3rd marriage she married the Doctor Bodo thyssen who is not related to the THyssen bornemiszas.Her 5th husband was theodor Henne. The names she uses are of her 3rd and 5th husband, her daughter was not adopted by any of them, thus has no legal claim to the name of any of them. Her mum certainly took some gain out of some of her marriages, but due to her own work she was never dependent on having a rich husband. I don't think the name gold digger applies to her.

BTW there are not many who concluded their studies of law with magna cum laude at Munich university.

Renates 4th husband was Detlef Wunderlich, who then married the famous violine player Anne-Sophie MUtter.

This is one of the biggest organizations for the development of the world and has for mission to answer to the problems of the poverty and social exclusion, developing its activity in Africa Subsariana, Central Asia and of the South and in the Average East.
For its side, the director of the University of Évora, Patrician Manuel Blacksmith, enalteceu the "spread ethical and felt of universal fraternity" of the leader spiritual, underlining the vast resources spent for the development in favor of "social pluralism and of the peace" for the Net Aga Khan, a "extraordinary workmanship of económica, social, cultural and educative aid, that since the age of the 20 years develops to the intercontinental scale".
Already Aga Khan affirmed to be "a privilege to be associated to a university that if kept fidiciary office per as many centuries to the principle of that the fruits of the education and the learning are for being to the service of the humanity".
E remembered "the truily glorious times of history human being, when the worlds Muslim and Jewish-Christian had developed constructive links, enriching its civilizations and enabling its institutions of superior education with new sources of knowledge" to defend the values of pluralism.

older pictures...

Princess Salima Aga Khan, Ambassador for SOS Children's Villages International, pictured at a press conference in Berlin, 17 September 2002. It was announced that the SOS Children's Village organisation was the 2002 winner of the world's largest humanitarian award donated by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and endowed with one million dollars. The Princess had tears in her eyes when she spoke about her commitment for the organisation: 'It is extremely important to give the traumatised children of this world a community, brothers and sisters.' Two years ago the Ex-wife of Aga Khan became an ambassador for the organisation founded by Hermann Gmeiner in 1949.

Sorry, the link worked for me, I tested it before posting ... :(

I googled Kristin J. White and found nothing. But I am sure the tabloids will also find this beautiful couple and then we will "learn" more.

Aga Khan's son to wed American sweetheart

PARIS, April 25, 2006 (AFP) -

The second son of the Aga Khan, the billionaire spiritual leader of the world's 15 million Shia Ismaili Muslims, is to marry his American sweetheart this year, the family said Tuesday.

Prince Hussain, 32, met Kristin J. White, who is two years his junior and who took the name Khaliya following her conversion to Islam, when the pair were graduate students at New York's Columbia University.

Their wedding is planned for the autumn, according to a statement from the Aga Khan's secretariat, based in a chateau in Gouvieux near Paris.
Hussain, who studied international relations at Columbia, is responsible for developing environmental projects at the Aga Khan Foundation.
His fiancee, a consultant on health matters, and has researched urbanism, health and development issues in Asia, North America and eastern Europe, the secretariat said.

Prince Hussein is the third child and second son from Prince Karim Aga Khan's first marriage, to the British top model Sally Croker Poole, who became Princess Salimah Aga Khan.

No relation. But wouldn't be surprised if that's what they want people to think. Thyssen is the name of one of her four husbands.

Wow, she looks beautiful! I esp like the champagne- colored suit and big hat (though I imagine the people behind her were not as pleased). The hat frames her face and her elegant hair style beautifully. Lovely suit (material, color and and fit) and earrings. The sari is gorgeous, though I think she overdid the eye makeup. I like her maekup with the suit better. Also, as an Indian myself with lots of experience with saris, I do think she could have had her sari draped better - it's a little too loose and shapeless - nothing a few extra tucks and well-placed pins couldn't fix.
