“Okay, so I haven’t really made any money—but at least I know I’ve lived,” says Shand, who is married to the French-born Clio Goldsmith, a daughter of ecologist Teddy Goldsmith and first cousin to Jemima Khan. The couple have a 13-year-old daughter, Ayesha.
As for Tara, upon whose back Shand famously rode more than 600 miles across India in 1988, she currently resides near Kanha National Park in central India. “She’s a pampered princess now,” says Shand. “My next job is to find her a husband, and I’ve been keeping my eye out for the One. She’s only in her 40s—still a young thing. A bit of a Bridget Jones.”
