What a stupidity; Soraya had an abnormality of uterus. Ulrike Grunewald wrote it in her book about famous rivals.

I didn't write that soraya's infertility was because of Ashraf. I wrote that it was rumoured.
Queen Fawzia never had a good life in Iran . She didn't have a good relationship with her husband whom had other women in his life , and the number of his mistresses increased when he ascended the throne . He had terrible relationship with her husband's family especially with her mother in law and sister in laws . And she was an extremely shy person, which didn't help her case. After a while her closest friends were send back to Egypt including the lady in waiting she brought with her from Egypt and Egypt ambassador to whom she was very close.

Her death is so unexpected and I'm so sorry to hear the news. :( I hope her funeral and mourning will be carried out smoothly, given the chaos that are happening in Cairo.

sad news indeed

Princess Fawzia, the first wife of the Shah of Iran and a daughter of King Fuad I of Egypt, has died at the age of 92, according to a member of the former royal family. Her death was reported on social media by her nephew King Fuad II, who was Egypt’s last king before he was deposed in 1953, when Egypt was declared a republic.

So sorry for that!!!

Hardly surprising. The current revolution will have much more impact on the lives of the Egyptian people that the death/burial of a princess from a dynasty that was tossed out 60 years ago.

How sad! May she rest in peace!
Fawzia lived and died at very interesting times for Egypt.
I'm mostly sad because with her death it feels like saying goodbye to a whole era. Such women will never exist!

Has she not already been buried? Are not Muslims supposed to be buried within 24 hrs?

That is true. I often wonder if young adults from my generation in Egypt are even aware that a monarchy existed nearly a century ago.

Agreed, she was one of the epitomes of these great beauties from the old times.

I hope the Iranian family will send someone to attend the funeral.
