How terribly sad. Queen Nazli is buried in a Catholic cemetary just a few miles from my office in Culver City, California; perhaps I'll pay a visit one day soon. Is it true that she converted to Catholicism? Did her daughter as well?
May I just ask, why did the recent Egyptian kings always marry and then quicky divorce??? They marry 2 or 3 times, but divorce the wives within a coupler of years. Also why the King wanted to marry Queen Narriman and why did he divorce her right after she gave him a son?

3-CAIRO, EGYPT: The son of Egypt's late King Faruq, Ahmed Fuad (C), prays along with unidentified mourners over the coffin of his sister Fawzia during her funeral at the Mohammed Ali cemetery in Cairo's Rifai mosque late 30 January 2005. The princess, daughter of Egypt's last monarch, was laid to rest after her death last week in Switzerland aged 65.
Does anyone have news about his children/grandchildren or was it the end of line with the death of King Farouk? Does any one know?
King Farouk had three daughters by his first wife, Queen Farida:
Princesses Fawzia, Feryal and Fadia (d 2002),
and a son by his second wife, Queen Narriman:
Prince Ahmed Fouad (1952- ), titular King of Egypt 1952-3.
Fouad (II) has three children:
Hereditary Prince Mohamed Ali (1979- )
Prince Fakhr-el-Din (1987- )
Princess Fawzia Latifa (1982- )
He is divorced from his French wife, Dominique Picard, Queen Fadila.
Thank you Warren for providing the above info. Would you know where I could find pictures and more info regarding these relatives.
Mandy, I must admit that my main source of info for the current generation has been Point de Vue. They took an ongoing interest in the family because King Fouad's wife was French. Apart from the death of Princess Fadia, the most recent update was back in January 2002. Since the divorce their interest has evaporated!
On October 1977 married Fouad of Egypt Fadila Dominique Picard in the Palace of monaco. On 5 Februar 1979 their son Mohammed Ali was born in Cairo after they had a special permission from President Saddat to enter Egypt. On the 12 of February 1982 their second Child, daughter Fawzia Latifa was born in the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco.
Here are some Pics of the Family from the Year 1982:
