Last night the American model Kendra Spears married Prince Rahim Aga Khan, the eldest son of his Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan IV. The engagement was announced back in the spring, but the couple kept secret the date for the big event. The upcoming wedding then caused a lot of noise: discussed the Aga khans and their addicted to beauty and the show business ( the Seattle-born beauty is not the only model to marry into the royal family. Her father-in-law married British model Sarah “Sally” Croker-Poole, and his grandfather was married to iconic actress Rita Hayworth.), and Kendra acceptance of Islam, and many more.
The lovebirds were surrounded by their family and close friends for the celebration on Saturday and, following in the royal family’s custom, had a traditional Muslim ceremony.
The nuptials started with the recitation of a traditional “qasida” in the Farsi language, a poem that speaks in praise of someone. This was then followed by the “nikah”, the marriage ceremony that was overseen by His Eminence Sayyed Muhammad Musawi, a prominent Shia faith leader.
Prince Rahim and Kendra were then presented with an 18th century piece of Islamic art to mark their special day.”
