Prince Rahim Aga Khan – whose grandfather Prince Aly Khan was married from 1947 to 1953 to Hollywood sex goddess Rita Hayworth – is claiming a beautiful American bride all his own.

The prince, 42, a graduate of Brown University who now works on behalf of poverty reduction for the Aga Khan Development Network (described on its website as "one of the largest private systems of agencies fostering social, cultural and economic development in Asia, Africa and the Middle East"), will wed model Kendra Spears of Seattle.

The site says that the two will marry in a Muslim ceremony at an as-yet undecided date.

According to, Spears won a Ford modeling contest in 2008, which landed her on covers of Vogue and Elle and in ad campaigns for Calvin Klein, Emporio Armani and Diane Von Furstenberg.

It is assumed she will be addressed as "Princess."
