Born in Kuwait, Mouna, 39, is mother of five children - four boys and one girl, who must have the greatest hand-me-downs in the world. She was married to the billionaire engineer Dr Nasser Al-Rashid for 20 years. When they divorced last February, Mouna said bye bye to a $100m, eight- storey yacht stuffed full of David Linley furniture, a very large palace with a staff of 70 and a private jet. But fear not, investing wisely over the years has given Mouna her own personal fortune.
Although Mouna is a great society figure (her friends - and Lordie must she have lots of them - include Anouska Hempel and Shakira Caine), she retains a humbleness and a roaring sense of humour. She gives extensively to charity, eats at McDonalds (not all the time of course) and once, at a swanky dinner, she passed her 110 carat blue diamond round the table for all to try on. ABReuse content
