Jewellery designer Sabine Getty reveals she’s ‘rediscovered’ her Getty dynasty husband Joseph during lockdown – and admits she’s snacking on Nutella toast and not tackling her to-do list

  • Sabine Getty has revealed her very relaxed approach to lockdown to Tatler
  • Socialite said she’s rediscovered her husband, billionaire heir Joseph Getty
  • Added she is under no pressure to do anything and is on her children’s schedule 

Jewellery designer Sabine Getty has revealed she’s ‘rediscovered’ her financier husband during lockdown with their two children.  

Writing in Tatler, the mother-of-two, 36, said she’s ‘restless, exhausted, useless and depressed by the flow of bad news’, but isn’t concerned about trying to achieve too much.  

Sabine is believed to be isolating at Wormsley Park, an 18th century country house, which is nestled in the Chiltern Hills of Buckinghamshire, belonging to Joseph’s father Mark Getty and his family.  

She added that it’s renewed her relationship with financial analyst Joseph, the great grandson of oil baron J. Paul Getty, rediscovering his sense of humour, culinary skills and ‘the always-in-high-spirits passionate person I have as a friend and partner for life’.

She explained has planned to take more than 1,000 family photos and put them into albums, learn to cook and play the piano, write a play and a TV series, do tapestry and teach her daughter to garden – but hasn’t got round to any of it.

‘As of today, none of these tasks have been remotely tackled and most not even seriously considered’ she said. 

‘Here’s the thing: even though I’m at home and even though, yes, technically, there is enough time in the day to do all these things… I don’t feel like it in the least.’ 

The lavish house where the family is staying has an impressive library and a theatre and the grounds are home to a cricket club and Garsington Opera’s annual festival is held there annually.

Swiss-born Sabine, who counts Princess Beatrice amid her posse of high society pals, added that she’s stopped putting pressure on herself to do anything, and has told herself it’s okay to do ‘just 56 steps a day’.  

She wrote that she is slowly merging into my children’s schedule.

‘I find myself up at 6am, eating lunch at 12 noon sharp and snacking on toast with Nutella at 3pm because, why not? 

‘I have dinner at 5pm and am ready to go to bed by 7pm. (I drag it out as long as I can, forcing myself to stay awake through a movie, until I finally give up by 8.30pm.)’ 

She also revealed she plays cards, laughs at memes and donates to charity while stuck inside.

The socialite, who has two children Gene, three, and Jupiter, one, added she’s rediscovered her husband as since being locked down with him and realised that she’s ‘so unbelievably lucky’.  

Sabine is often seen in royal circles and was one of the famous faces at Princess Beatrice’s star-studded engagement party last year, and is also close pals with her sister Eugenie. 

The daughter of an Egyptian interior decorator and a Lebanese financier, Sabine saw her status – and bank balance – sky-rocket when she wed Billionaire heir Joseph Getty in 2015.

The Getty dynasty was started by J. Paul Getty, Joseph’s great-grandfather, who became the richest man in the world thanks to the Getty Oil Company and went on to set up a number of acclaimed art institutions, despite being a notorious miser. 

Despite marrying into riches, Sabine has an impressive CV herself and runs her very own jewellery business, which is beloved by the A-list.

Born in Switzerland, and living between Geneva, Beirut and the South of France as a child, Sabine graduated from the Gemological Institute of America in 2012.

Whilst living stateside, she studied diamond grading and jewellery design, and then moved to London to forge her own way, quickly getting to know all the right people along the way.

Her designs have since been worn by fashionable A-listers such as Rihanna, with whom she regularly parties with, Alessandra Ambrosio, Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevingne.
