India Hicks

This is India Hicks, taking one of her kids to school. She lives on an island in the Bahamas with her main man, David Flint Wood, and their four children. Tan and lean, Ms. Hicks hops about the island with her brood of tow-headed kids, while also penning books and overseeing a line of beauty products. India, will you adopt my family and me?

For those of you who may not know Ms. Hicks, she's the daughter of interior decorater David Hicks, and Pamela Hicks, daughter to the Earl and Countess Mountbatten of Burma. She was a bridesmaid in Charles and Diana's wedding many years ago - Prince Charles is her godfather.

With the approaching nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Ms. Hicks posted this photo on her blog. I got a kick out of it.

I'd be content with her nutritionist and personal trainer visiting for a few months:).

how fun to have been part of that famous
wedding! . . . and to live on an island.

we almost named our first daughter,
"india" and it would have suited her so
perfectly. oh well, she loves her own name!

thanks for the super fun post.

I have always been fascinated by her and her enviable lifestyle! I remember her as a bridesmaid and she was just as gorgeous than as she is now!

Count me in on the adoption ~ perhaps I should give up on the diet and exercise and just move to the island!

I love India's understated and elegant style. She proves that you don't have to be dressed to the nines to look beautiful and chic. Her family is adorable and I love their island spunk style (or ISS)that translates into their home and personal appearance(s). She gives the term "hicks" a whole new meaning. If this is how "hicks" live, then please, bring it on!

We can be adopted sisters b/c I want in! I actually didn't know the bit about her being in THE royal wedding. She has a blog, too, that I can't recall if I'm still following or not (ha! isn't that bad?!...one day I'll catch up!)

Thanks for the Royal Post from India Hicks, it is very witty.

Great blog, all the best to you....
