Suzanne Mubarak (Arabic: سوزان مبارك, Sūzān Mubārak; born 28 February 1941) is married to the former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and was the First Lady of Egypt until her husband resigned on 11 February 2011.
Early life and education 
Suzanne Mubarak was born in Al Minya Governorate, located on the Nile River about 250 kilometres to the south of Cairo, on 28 February 1941. Her father, Saleh Thabet, was an Egyptian pediatrician and her mother was Lily May Palmer, a nurse from Pontypridd, Wales.  She went to St. Claire School in Heliopolis, Cairo.
Suzanne met her future husband, an Egyptian Air Force officer named Hosni Mubarak, when she was 16 years old. The couple married when Suzanne was 17 years old and had two sons, Alaa Mubarak and Gamal Mubarak. She returned to school ten years after her marriage.
She graduated from American University in Cairo (AUC) in 1977 with a bachelor's degree in political science and then received a master's degree in sociology from AUC in 1982. She wrote a thesis on "Social Action Research in Urban Egypt: Case study of primary school upgrading in Bulaq".
Involvement in Mubarak regime 
Suzanne's activities in projects relating to human trafficking and family affairs became prominent in Egypt. She led the Egyptian U.N. delegation in conferences relating to women and children. In October 2008, she was nominated as Goodwill Ambassador of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). She was a patron of the children's television series, Alam Simsim (Arabic for "Sesame's World"), Egypt's version of the American series, Sesame Street. In 1985 she founded the Child Museum of Cairo in collaboration with the British Museum. In 2005, she opened the Hurghada branch of Mubarak's Public Library.
In March 2008, Egyptian journalist Ibrahim Eissa was arrested for reporting on Hosni Mubarak's health problems in August 2007. Suzanne Mubarak then gave a rare television address to allege that Hosni was actually healthy and reporters who suggested otherwise deserve to be punished.
Suzanne Mubarak is the wife of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. She is the daughter of an Egyptian pediatrician, Saleh Thabet, and Welsh nurse Lily Palmer. Saleh Thabet, at the time a 29-year-old medical student at Cardiff University, married the 29-year-old Lily May Palmer at Islington, London on 16 March 1934. Palmer was a trained nurse working at The Infirmary on Camden Road, Islington. She was the daughter of colliery manager Charles Henry Palmer, and grew up in Pontypridd, Glamorgan, Wales. Suzanne Mubarak's older brother, Mounir Sabet, is a former president of the Egyptian Olympic Committee.
