Habib is married to entrepreneur and former personal style consultant Caroline Stanbury. Reportedly once a girlfriend of Prince Andrew, she recently gave an interview (complete with slideshow) to The London Magazine about the couple’s opulent Kensington home.

She’s also the founder of upmarket gifts website Gift-Library, offering readers the chance to buy, among other things, Rolex watches, emerald necklaces and diamond rings.

There you can peruse items specially selected by her friends, including socialite Tamara Beckwith and billionaire Goga Ashkenazi, who’s a partner in the firm.

Goga, who apparently penned her section of the website by the pool in the south of France, is a close friend to Prince Andrew and, according to the Daily Mail, recently hosted a glamorous party for him, organized by none other than Caroline herself.
