Nonoo is the daughter of an Iraqi businessman and English mother, and at the age of 11 moved to London with her family.

She is also Jewish, as is Hess, whose grandfather Leon founded the multi-billion-dollar Hess Corporation.

Hess’ father John is now the CEO of the company.

It dos not seem that Hess will be joining the family business any time soon though, having worked at Goldman Sachs and the Royal Hashemite Court after graduating from Harvard and Harvard Business School, where he met best friend Josh Kushner.

He is currently an associate at KKR & Co.

Nonoo and Hess first made their relationship public at the royal wedding last year, and a few months later joined Kushner and his then-fiance Karlie Kloss for a trip down the Amalfi Coast on David Geffen’s yacht. 

The couple were back on a boat when Hess popped the question, though their location is unclear. 

There was a brief stop before the couple made their way back to New York, with the pair paying a visit to Hess’ family in Beverly Hills.

Then it was back to New York, where Nonoo was seen arriving back to the city on Tuesday morning after taking a red-eye flight. 

Nonoo will have another reason to celebrate this week as well, with her good friend Markle having returned to the States for the first time since her wedding to have her baby shower in New York.
