While studying for his MBA at Stanford University, Rishi Sunak met Akshata Murty, who was also in the MBA program. She is the daughter of the wealthy businessman Narayana Murthy, co-founder of the tech giant Infosys. (Akshata dropped the ‘h’ from her name.) Sunak and Murty were married in August of 2009. They have two daughters: Krishna and Anoushka… Akshata Murty owns a stake in Infosys that, early in 2022, was worth over £700 million, or nearly a billion dollars in US currency… According to The Guardian, Rishi Sunak “is not the first minority ethnic PM -- Benjamin Disraeli, who held the office twice between 1868 and 1880, was of Jewish heritage”… Rishi Sunak is 5’6” tall (170 cm), according to a 2022 article in GQ magazine… In the British system, prime ministers are chosen by political parties, but they are formally “invited” by the reigning monarch to form a government. Rishi Sunak was the first prime minister to be so invited by King Charles III. Sunak’s predecessor, Liz Truss, was the last of 15 prime minister to take office under Charles’s mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
