Martina Mondadori Sartogo
Martina Mondadori Sartogo is an autor and the founder of Cabana Magazine –but perhaps better known for breaking the marriage of Prince Charles’ cousin.
Martina –herself a married woman and mother of three –is said to have had an affair with Ashley Hicks –an interior designer and Prince Charles second cousin.
According to Page Six, Hicks and Sartogo’s affair began in June when the pair traveled Genoa, Italy, on business together. Hicks reportedly told his wife about the affair in August. Now his wife, Kata de Solis wants a divorce. Hicks and de Solis were married in 2015 after meeting on Instagram. They share a son named Caspian and Kata de Solis is currently pregnant with their second child.
Martina at first denied the affair but her publicist stated in September, her relationship with Hicks was over. Martina and Kata de Solis were described as best friends.
37-year-old Martina serves as editor in chief at Cabana Magazine –the clothbound interiors magazine she launched in 2014 and which serves really as ‘shop window’ for Martina’s home products.
