It is with sadness and great grief that I am to inform my coutrymen living in IRAN or in exile, of the passing away of my daughter Leila Pahlavi in London during her sleep, in the night of 10th June 2001.

For the past few years, Leila was very depressed. Time had not healed her wounds. Exiled at the age of 9, she never surmounted the death of her father, His Majesty Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi to whom she was particularly close.
She was never able to forget the injustice and the dramatic conditions of our departure and the erring which was to follow. She could not stand living far from IRAN and shared wholeheartedly the suffering of her countrymen.

At a time when we have lost a person so dear, in the force of her age, my thoughts go towards our young compatriots who, in IRAN or in exile, also have difficulty in facing up to conditions of life over which they have no mastery.

Above all, Leila loved IRAN. She has left us without seeing her country again. Beyond the grief of a mother, this will always be a regret for me that nothing could ever fill.

The passing away of my beloved daughter brings me even closer to those Iranian mothers who have lived through the same mourning.

Paris, 11th June 2001

She had suffered from anorexia along with depression. Losing Iran and her father were more than she could handle. Lelia was also a poet and a founder of the Pahlavi Foundation.

thats a bit strange,being a peot,attneding university,learning seven languages,being involved in charity and all the other qualification that are said about leila needs a strong motive,it's hard to believe that a depress person like leila who had suffered from it since the age of 8 could have achieved all those.

She suffered from barbiturate and benzodiazepine abuse for some time before her death. What a hapless woman... A Princess without a Prince, a HIH without an Empire.

Sometimes that is true, but many successful people who appear on the surface to be very outgoing are honestly tormented and insecure. Princess Leila had been abusing pills for a while, and it is unclear how long she had been anorexic. Depression has been known to accompany anorexia in many cases which makes treating either of the diseases very complex.

Empress Farah´s declaration concerning her daughter´s death

I find it kind of perfidious to use the sickness of one´s daughter who obviously had nothing to do with the disappear from Iran to make the Iran responsible for her daugther´s death.
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'm not agree

I think there is no reason to doubt about the reasons given by Empress Farah about the Princess Leila's death. To think that the Shahbanou used this sad death for her own profit is a big mistake and not to trust on her.

A great pity. She was beautiful, and obviously a tortured soul.
