There are billionaires, and then there are the billionaires in Dubai! We have penned this post with multimillionaire socialite Caroline Stanbury as the central character to prove that these two are separate categories. The 45-year-old Brit glorified life in Dubai for allowing her to flaunt her insane wealth without chagrin, proving that life in Dubai is as extravagant as Dubai itself. The social media influencer lives in the United Arab Emirates with her husband, former Real Madrid player Sergio Carrallo, 27. The couple is seen living the good life, traveling, and making the most of the great Dubai domain.
Her claim to fame is not that she hails from an ultra-rich family (Caroline is the daughter of venture capitalist Anthony Stanbury and fashion designer Elizabeth Stanbury), but her appearance in a BBC2 documentary series Inside Dubai. The show describes her as one of Dubai’s most successful influencers, and she returns the compliments by calling Dubai the land where the rich can live like the rich. Daily Mail shared her frank comments on the difference between being rich in Dubai and anywhere else in the world, particularly Great Britain.
She said, ‘In Britain, we’re taught that if you have the money, you shouldn’t show it,’ she said. ‘You’re meant to turn your lights off at 7 pm and share a bath with your family. Here you turn all your lights on, and you put all your jewelry on at once. Any British billionaire is dressed in Marks & Spencer; that’s just what we do. Here, they wear Dolce & Gabbana, and so do their children.”
She concludes, “They’re doing something right the rest of the world hasn’t cottoned on to.’ The socialite indeed loves Dubai, which is why she chose to celebrate with friends and family at the Raffles The Palm Dubai despite initially getting married in Mauritius Island.
Not only did she introduce beau Carrallo to the world in an opulent gold-hued bed as her husband, but the blonde beauty also shared several moments showcasing the stunning Dubai property with family in tow.
The social media queen who enjoys nearly 550k followers on Instagram showed how extravagant Christmas could be with a post posing in front of a massive tree holding a gorgeous Christian Dior bag.
The couple is seen flaunting their wealth, dressed head-to-toe in luxury brands against the mesmerizing Dubai skyline.
From Jacob & Co. watches to personalized Christian Dior bags and umpteen trips to Raffles The Palm Dubai (Caroline calls it a home away from home, and she surely treats it like one too), they are truly living life in the lap of luxury sans the embarrassment.
Caroline Stanbury often posts images of her kids enjoying life just as much as their mum in balmy Dubai spotted at Dubai hotspots like Maiden Shanghai Dubai, or posing atop luxury cars. But nothing beats the luxury of their posh Al Barari villa that flaunts seven en-suite bedrooms, a massive kitchen as seen in Instagram posts, and an opulent living room.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia back in 2016, she shared, “Al Barari is discreet, secure and has everything I need. You can have fun with a house like this.” “I wanted it to feel cozy like my children are next to us, which is nice for them. The children love it. They’ve said they don’t want to go home. What child doesn’t love playing sports in the sun?” This prominent member of the London society may choose to live life queen size in Dubai instead of London (though she does love her home in Surrey). Still, she gives her Londoner friends like the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, and Susan Sarandon a taste of life in Dubai.
