The Asos billionaire and his family were staying at the Shangri-La Hotel in Sri Lanka’s capital Colombo when it was hit on Easter Sunday by suicide bombers Zahran Hashim and Ilham Ibrahim. Povlsen, his wife, and one of their daughters survived. But son Alfred and daughters Alma and Agnes were killed.

At a memorial last week, the family described their loss as “utterly incomprehensible” but thanked family, friends and neighbours in the Danish town of Brande for their support, in a text message read by a priest.
