Interesting story but hard to believe as that statement (could be true or made up) that the Prince hasn't been near the island for over a decade and why would he charter a yacht when he has one of the biggest. We've seen so many stories like this, an makes one wonder is this about money or ruining osmoses reputation.

The New York Daily has the same story
Spain re-investigating Saudi Arabia's Prince Alwaleed bin Talal for drugging, raping model in Ibiza

And is CNN reliable?

HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud Releases Records Proving HRH Not in Spain in August 2008 - PR Newswire - sacbee.com
"Having just learned of these allegations through press reports we are moving swiftly to prove that His Royal Highness was not in Spain. As the records show, he was in France in multiple public places with many friends and business associates and was accompanied by French security officers all who can confirm his presence. Moreover, His Royal Highness was surrounded by his family including his wife HH Princess Ameerah, his daughter HRH Princess Reem and his granddaughter Princess Sara," said Ms. Heba Fatani, Sr. Executive Manager, Corporate Communications, Kingdom Holding Company.
"While the Prince is a committed advocate for Women and has empathy for any assault victim, he was simply not present and we ask the media to carefully review these documents and take action to correct reports that inaccurately link the Prince to these alleged events."

I really adore Princess Amira,she is a remarkable woman and she looks absolutely fabulous!
There are some nice youtube tributes for her with many photos-just look for yourself, hereīs one with a song that I like a lot :
You will also find interviews with her husband who seems to be very open-mided and modern (different than most men in his country!) and supports womenīs independence-I wonder why he doesnīt do more for womenīs right to drive?!?


Anyway,I hope to learn more about P.Amira and see more of her pictures...I have been living close to the Saudi Arabian Embassy for a few years but I never saw such a breathtaking gorgeous lady like her...the Saudi women in Vienna wear large black veils or even burka-it is a little bit strange to see women in Saudi Arabia, a strict muslim country,less covered than in a secular country like mine

I saw a few minutes of her on Piers Morgan, and she speaks perfect English; I couldn't help but wonder if she was American but from Arab descent. I always assumed anyone speaking a second language that is not their native tongue, that they would speak with an accent.
As for her clothes, I truly wonder if any outfit could detract from her beauty.

Yes,she doesnīt need to dress up to be beautiful!Especially her hair is sooo gorgeous,I wonder how she gets such long,healthy hair,I always wanted to have long hair like she does but it never works out *lol*
I like that she doesnīt use too much makeup & she is well-educated and smart-thatīs much more important than the clothes she wears!I wish there were more interviews with her in western newspapers or tv...

Just a general question no disrespect intended; I can't help but to wonder why driving is such a big deal to Ameerah and not another plight of Saudi women. Does anyone know why this issue is so important to her.

It appears to be her biggest deal because in her first ever interview before non of saudis knew who she was she was asked about this particular issue in a local newspaper and she answered it honestly. The topic of women driving in general was highly covered and talked about in the Saudi media at that time so media just embraced that and ever since Ameerah was associated with this particular issue. Now and after a few years, even though Ameerah has proven her self to be great humanitarian, and human right activist who is taking lots of initiatives through her foundation to empower women in work force and education, she is still remembered as the princess who talks openly against driving ban.

If you ever seen her interviews you'll see how she only talk about the driving issue when she is asked about it, instead she deliberately brings all other issue whenever possible.

I will post a short part of the interview with Arabian Business (link in my previous post above-I can only recomend you to read it because it is very interesting!)

She explains: “There are several causes I believe in, not being able to drive is bothering women here but I’m not going to be depressed if I am not driving. It is bothering me a little bit, but there are bigger issues that are far more important to me, like education.”

->So if I get it right she does care about driving but it is not her biggest concern-she is more worried about the inequal chances in education,work or politics I guess...
when you canīt drive a car you are always dependent on a male-some like to exploit this power if they can and there are lots of youtube-videos where Saudi women explain how difficult it is to get to work on time because they are not allowed to drive
Itīs beyond me why they donīt let them drive,it is just so silly and unreasonable-some Saudi men say they donīt want women to drive because they are less capable,some say because it is not a good thing for decent women to do etc.etc. but IMO the true motive is to control the lives of their women!They have to ask their guardian if they want to travel or drive somewhere,they have to ask for permission to go to work or study at university and much much more....!Thatīs why the princess is focusing more on education-just like Sheikha Mozah or Queen Rania-because educated men and women will be more open-minded and donīt just do everything they are told if they donīt see a reason why thatīs the right thing to do.
A lot of strange rules are explained with "Islam" but as soon as young Saudis know how to read and interpret the Quaran,read books and learn about other cultures they will start to question laws that were made to opress women and see that muslim women can go to university,work or visit foreign countries and still be respectable,devout muslims.
I hope this explains a little bit,because there are so many misconceptions about Islam and you have to understand that laws are often explained with religion but they are merely traditions-traditions that can be changed just like in Europe,where a few hundred years ago women had to fight the same stereotypes that muslim women have to deal with today!
The prince and the princess have always been supporting female empowerment.Women donīt have to wear a veil when they work for the prince and P. Amira has studied at university and is in the public-unlike many other Saudi Arabian princesses who are never showing their face,talking to the media or letting the outside world know what they think.Thatīs why I was so surprised to find out she has a twitter account....to me this is a sign that finally the situation is getting better for Saudia Arabian women and at least the princess can use her voice and put equal rights for women on the agenda!

^blauerengel i dont think thats all correct saudis are very educated not just in islam but also [princesses] in university around world, in arts and online like twitter. alot of people want women to drive but gov. has to make it more clear and king abdullah has been moving in the rights of women there.

about princess ameerah, some questions:
what year shes born in?
how long there married? also wiki says she 1 of 2 wife, i thought the prince he is devorced?

i think before she is a pretty tagg along for prince alwaleed, but now shes more of herself using her voice/opinion and position of power for good. i hope we see more for her in her home and internationl .

Yes blauerengel I agree with you she is gorgeous and educated I like her interview, I actually did not know that she cares about education and about her country I though that she is just worry about her self, I believe we need more women like her in Saudi to speak up and ask for their rights, and it's great when she said that there is far more important issues thank driving in Saudi this means she cares about what is going on in Saudi.

Yes her hair is gorgeous, I believe all the Gulf area's women have such a beautiful hair like hers, maybe because of the food that they eat, or the weather, or maybe genetic. I wish I have long hair like hers too.

I did not say that all men are uneducated but there are certainly some individuals who didnīt receive higher education and men who want to limit womenīs freedom-
I know there are also many men,husbands,intellectuals etc.who support women in Saudia Arabia! But as long as they are not allowed to drive and enjoy the same human rights like men I will not stop pointing out injustice and inequality!

I have also wondered when she was born,I guess the Princess is somewhere around 30 because she has finished university,but I donīt really care for her exact age that much.You know,never ask a Lady about her ageSome women like to keep it a secret...

about the marriage situation I will repost from a previous page of the thread...
Miss Teens Hadeel

actually he has married 4 times

1- the first one is princess Dalal .. she is from the royal family .. and the daughter of his uncle king saud .. he has tow children from her .. she had still with him for 18 years then she asked the divorce

2- princess Eman .. less than one year .. from the royal family ..

3- princess Khouloud .. 5 years .. she is not from the royal family .. they were calling here .. your highness , Not your royal highness .. and thats the cause of why she asked the divorce ..

4- princess Ameera Not from the royal family he married her in 2006..
