Princess Salimah Aga Khan (née: Sarah Frances Croker-Poole; born January 28, 1940), also known as Begum Salimah Aga Khan, is a former fashion model and an ex-wife of the 49th Ismaili Shia Imam, the IV Aga Khan Prince Karim Aga Khan.

Early life[edit]

Princess Salimah was born at New Delhi, India, as Sarah Frances Croker-Poole. She is the daughter of Lt.-Col. Arthur Edward Croker-Poole and his wife, Jean Margaret Watson. She married, firstly, Lord James Charles Crichton-Stuart, son of Sir John Crichton-Stuart, 5th Marquess of Bute and Lady Eileen Beatrice Forbes, on 25 June 1959. She and Lord James Charles Crichton-Stuart were divorced in 1968.

She married, secondly, Prince Karim Aga Khan IV, son of Prince Aly Khan and Hon. Princess Tajuddawlah Aga Khan, in 1969. During her marriage to the Aga Khan, her official name was Her Highness The Begum Aga Khan, although she remained informally known as Sally. Following their divorce in 1995, she kept the title of "Princess" (but losing the style "Highness").

Charitable career[edit]

She is now a child-welfare activist and a prominent supporter of the charity SOS Children's Villages.[1] As part of her welfare activity she has also aided Afghan refugees.

She has also been active in the Aga Khan Development Network.

Personal life[edit]

She has three children with the Aga Khan, Princess Zahra Aga Khan (b. September 18, 1970), Prince Rahim Aga Khan (b. October 12, 1971), Prince Hussain Aga Khan (b. April 10, 1974).

Today, she lives in London with Philippe Lizop, the French lawyer who secured her divorce settlement.
