In my opinion Farah just wanted public attention and used the death of her daughter for that. Leila was obviously sick with depressions but to interpret that the disappear from Iran was guilty on that is just speculation and not very credible. I´m sure the children that time didn´t notice all the stress that much by being safed in a special way so there was no way for them to become traumatised in that hard way.
Many children have to move from one place to another or lose their father but that doesn´t automatically cause depression.
i know what you mean and in some way you may be right. however, i read many articles talking about leila. it's not only having to exile but the way they had to exile. they really had good times and whenever you go up, the more up you go, the more up you fall from, so when they had bad times those bad times were really hard. the iranianroyal family had really tough times and in some way i don't think farah was exagerating or using her daughter's death for her own purpose. that would be quite sad, and i'm sure a mum who loves her child couldn't do it.
on the other hand, the death of leila meant a lot to understand what all of them had to pass through.

Since I can read Spanish (it's my native language), I could read Farah's interview at "Hola!" and I was surprised. Some people accuses her to said that Leyla had died for she couldn't stand her family's exile, but the whole thing was more complex than that. It seems that she was suffering by a nervous illness and that the medicines she was using to attack this illness caused her a stroke. It sounds true to me.This nervous trouble could have been caused not only by the exile, but by her family's anxiety when they must leave their home in Iran, and of course by her father's death. She was very young when all this happened, and the younger you are, the most you'll suffer. Apparently, Leyla was very depressed for she couldn't find a reason to live. It was not only that the family must leave their country, but that their whole lifes must change. They were "The Imperial family" in Iran. Outside the country, they are just common people...And they must start to leave accepting this new situation...It's not always easy. Reza Cyrus, Farahnaz and the rest of the family are trying to do it with some succes. Poor Leyla just couldn't.

Question

Didn't Leila also suffer from an eating disorder ? I'm sure the upheaval of the family from Iran was very hard on all of them. A very sad sad story: Leila was so beautiful. Thanks for the update.

Thank you for the "Hola" links, Hilal! You are really a dear! Did you read Spanish too? If not, I can try to translate to you what these articles said. I'm not good writing English, but I suppose that people understand what I'm saying, LOL! :p

Poor Leyla (or Leila...how do you write it?) .She was so sensitive. Sensitive people couldn't undergoe things as well as other persons. I'm touched by the way she spoke about her father, and the fact that she couldn't see him when he was dying.

I do not know if she suffered from an eating disorder, but I'm sure she was depressed ( Empress Farah never denied this). Depressed people doesn't eat normally, as other people does. They can eat too much, or just the opposite, they uses to eat very little, almost anything. I think this happened to the Imperial Princess...She wouldn't have felt like eating. At the pics of the "Hola!" articles, you can easily notice what enormous amount of weigh Leyla had lost the las years of her life, especially warching her arms and her waist . It give you chills! When younger, she had normal arms , but after a while...Oh, GOD! They seemed to be a corpse's arms. As for her face, her wide, swollen lips are common in persons who are suffering severe misnutrition .

My personal thought is that she suffered from a very deep depression.

Vanesa.

INTERVIEW IN PARIS WITH The YOUNGER DAUGHTER Of SHAH MOHAMED And EMPRESS FARAH ...

LEILA PAHLEVI TURNS THIRTY YEARS
TURNED A BEAUTIFUL And ELEGANT WOMAN

She is the daughter of Shah of Persia, Mohamed Reza Pahlevi, that man who occupied tens of pages in our magazine and the elegant and handsome Empress Farah. Leila is today a beautiful and cultured princess who remembers to her father with great nostalgia: "the last words that my father said to my mother were: "It takes care of of our children".
But over everything, Shah of Persia was a very affectionate father: "Sometimes he visited to him in his office, after the school, and although he had an important meeting, as soon as I opened to the door he saluted to me with an enormous smile".
Leila wants to continue the work that his father did by his country with the Mihan Foundation that he himself created: "It is nonpolitical an international Foundation that it wants to promote the Iranian culture, history and art to create bows between Iran and the West". In fact, she lives between America and Europe although she says to be nearer the Old Contiente: "In America I feel very in house, but I am more united to the European culture".

Leila Pahlevi, the minor of the four children of the Empress Farah Pahlevi and Shah de Persia, Mohamed Reza, has died in London in strange circumstances. The body of the Princess, who had turned 31 years the past 28 of March, was found afternoon of the last Sunday in the suite of the hotel in that it lodged, the Leonard, one of most luxurious of the city of the Thames, located near Marble Arch, by which it paid around 140 thousand pesetas daily.
The first declarations of Scotland Yard aimed at that there were reasons no to think about suspicious circumstances, simultaneously that described the tragedy as inexplicable death. One was believed, nevertheless, that the young person suffered nutritional upheavals and depression from kill some time, which could have triggered the tragedy.
In this respect, an official notice of the heir and brother of Leila, Reza II, emitted from its office of Falls Church, in Virginia (the United States), says: "it brings me enormous pain and deep sorrow to announce the tragic passing away of my beloved sister, Princess Leila Pahlevi, after lengthy illness".
Although Leila Pahlevi had its official residence in the United States, in concrete lived in Manhattan, was very popular in the social circles of London, Paris and Rome, cities in which had multitude of friends and to whom used to travel frequently. Until its death in London, and from its birth in the Imperial Palace of Tehran, Leila Pahlevi had crossed a long way. Been born in 1970, it spent the first years immersed in an existence of fairy tale, a dream life that finished with the arrival to Iran of the Ayatollah Homeini and the expulsion of the Shah and his family of the country.
Marked by the death of their father, who happened to him in 1980 during his exile in Egypt, the Princess, her brothers and their mother, Farah Pahlevi was transferred more concretely to the United States and to the state of Connecticut. They never imagined that they would not return to step on Iran, country that Leila maintained constantly in its memory, for that reason the Mihan organization, of character nonpolitician and directed to harness the Iranian culture, centered great part of her work.

The childhood in palace

Leila Pahlevi was the minor of the four children of Empress Farah and Shah of Persia, Mohamed Reza: Reza Cyrus, the heir, it was born the 30 October 1960, ten months after the wedding of his parents, the 11 March 1963 came to the world princess Farahnaz, three years later it arrived prince Ali Reza and the 28 of March of 1970 it was born Leila.
During the first years of her life, Leila grew, like her brothers in a special school within the imperial palace, as much by reasons for security as so that thus their professors and companions, chosen between the best students of the country, did not deal to them with too much difference, which had been able to happen in a school of Tehran.
According to Leila in a granted interview told the magazine HELLO! the last year, in the occasion of their thirty birthday, the memories of those years were very present in their life: "We had zoo! Dog, cat, lions, leopard, ewes, rabbits, coberries, sprocket wheels, squirrels, given by foreign countries and even a small elephant with which it flattered Mrs. Ghandi and that later we gave to zoo, like the lion and the leopard. But I always was very united to the dogs "; in fact, one of his first memories was a "called dog Mocca.

A Family Marked By Exile

With only 9 years, Leila had to leave its life in Iran: "We left three days before my parents. Thanks to God, ours ... took the albums of photos. All the others it was back, nobody thought that we would not return ". After taking place the disorders of January of 1979, the imperial family had to leave the country and Farah Pahlevi, which also she knows herself with the name of Farah Diba, and the Shah, who marched Tehran with tears in the eyes, happened to be the sovereigns of a dream country for many, to become nomads in search of a refuge. Only the Egyptian president, Sadat and the government welcomed to them and in that country the Shah the 27 of July of 1980, after one long one passed away and painful disease.
"iT was not present when he died. Days before that happened no longer I could visit to him more. A doctor said recently to me that that the children sometimes react thus very instinctively. But I went every day to the hospital. When we found out we were in Alexandria. We received a telephone call of the Cairo and I was with my sister, probably with our governess and ours pediatra and to my sister suddenly entered panic to him and pediatra was put to say. Then I knew that something went bad. We returned in car to the Cairo. My father had a camera aid to that I want much, that she said: "He is better not to enter the room". During long time I felt like culprit by not having been next to my father in its deathbed ".

A WOMAN OF DEEP BEAUTY And TORN EYES

Leila Pahlevi grew becoming a beautiful young person who studied Comparative Literature in the Brown University and who got to settle down their residence in the United States, although without forgetting Paris and London, cities to which traveled frequently: "In America I feel like in house, but I have been more united to the European culture", affirmed for a year. Leila worked firmly in the Mihan foundation.
Created by her father, she is nonpolitical an international organization who power the Iranian culture, history and the art to create bows between Iran and the West. Watching it it was possible to be said that Leila had inherited the beauty, the voice and the gestures of her mother, as worthy as enthusiastic. But Leila, no, is doubt, was also daughter of her father; observing to speak it, the characteristics of Shah were fused with those of the overwhelming student of architecture with that married in 1959.
She was Leila, in addition, a coqueta woman, worried at any moment about its aspect and the last tendencies of the fashion. In their closet the suits of the best modistos of the world had capacity. And also, as she told us in the interview with regard to his thirty anniversary, a soñadora woman: "I am many sleepy. And not only dream with Iran... and my dreams is extraordinary. Often I write down them in the morning. No director could reproduce them Sometimes because they are so complex, so intense..., in my dreams, I even compose music. When I wake up to me I am hopeless by not being able to write it because, although I studied music has forgotten to me to write notes! But, luckyly, when dream with my father, he always is well ".

The LOVE To HER PARENTS

Very together with her parents always one felt closely together of her mother, Empress Farah: "To my mother the story everything and the memory of her father, disappeared when she was only a girl, was very present in her: "very sincere Era with me, allowed me to make any question and nothing surprised to him. Memory that was very affectionate. Each morning, in spite of all the work that it had, saw him in the breakfast.
Sometimes she visited to him in the office after the school. Although it even had an important meeting, in how much I opened to the door he saluted to me with an enormous smile. It made me laugh very many. My father, who had an enormous presence and dignity was, in fact a timid and very frank man. Its only passion and its only obsession were its country. The progress of its country ".

Mohamed Reza are been present all these years in the dreams of her daughter: "In fact acceptance that is not here. The last time which I dreamed about my father he was knocked down in the bed. It was not well, but it was surrounded by animals, that gave a serenity feeling me. My father felt a great respect and admiration and affection by the nature and the animals ".
And speaking of her parents she remembered: "There was a formidable communication among them. They had much in common. They franqueza, they correction, they judgment, they compassion, they humor, they sharpness. Luckyly all we have inherited an incredible memory of them. What I value much of my parents and in my brother is that even when somebody stopped to them by the street, they saluted to him of a very friendly way ".
