Rishi Sunak's wife Akshata Murthy is richer than the Queen – & she could be moving to No10

She has previously described fashion as her passion and claimed she couldn’t imagine being involved with anything else.

The billionaire businesswoman is a woman of many talents, and also works as a director of a venture capital company founded by her father in 2010.

Ms Murthy’s father, Narayana, co-founded IT company Infosys in 1981, which has gone on to be a billion-pound firm.

Mr Murthy is the sixth richest man in India, with The Times of India describes the Chancellor’s father-in-law as “one of India’s top entrepreneurs”.

The Times reported in February 2020 that Ms Murthy has a stake in her dad’s IT firm that is reportedly worth £185million, and he is often dubbed the ‘Bill Gates of India’.

Ms Murthy and Mr Sunak are understood to be very well off, owning “at least four properties”, according to reports.

This includes a five-bedroom townhouse in London’s affluent Kensington, valued at about £7million.

The Chancellor’s wife came under fire recently after it was revealed she claimed up to £100,000 of taxpayer’s cash to pay furloughed staff at her gym business.
