India grew up in London and Oxfordshire. She was studying at Gordonstoun School in Scotland. But the school rusticated her when they caught her entertaining boys in her room. In 1981, she was one of the bridesmaids at the wedding of Prince Charles to Princess Diana. She is a writer, TV host, model, and an interior designer. In 2018 during the 70th birthday of Prince Charles, India Hicks had shared an emotional and sweet post in honor of the birthday boy. She wrote:

“Every birthday, every Christmas, a card and present would arrive from my Godfather. To begin with, they were signed: from ‘your loving Godfather Charles’, then they became ‘your old Godfather Charles’ and then ‘your ancient Godfather Charles’,”

She put up a photo of Prince Charles with her grandfather, Earl Mountbatten to go with the post. And added:

“His Royal Highness might be celebrating a 70th birthday this year but, goodness, he is far from ancient… I am lucky to have such a Godfather, but we are all lucky to have such a Prince among us.”
