Meet Saudi Arabia’s Princess Sara bint Talal bin Abdulaziz. She is absolutely stunning, as you can see from her photos here, but there is quite a sad story behind her beautiful face. She is claiming political asylum in the UK because she fears for her safety back home.

Princess Sara says her assets have been frozen, and she has been physically and mentally abused. She told The Sunday Telegraph,

“I am very scared right now. They know I can’t go back now. There is a threat. That’s a slap in the face of the Kingdom. I’ve been physically abused. I’ve been mentally abused. My assets have been frozen. They’ve accused me of being in opposition [to them] with Iran, they haven’t left anything. I’ve been crucified in every way.”

Her grandfather was King Abdulaziz, the founder of the Saudi state. She had a very close relationship with her father until a falling out, that she refuses to speak of publically happened. He then turned against her and she fled to England. She has been living there since 2007, and won custody of her four children, whom she is trying to raise in a strict and loving environment.

She has been battling for her inheritance left to her from her dead mother, which is worth an estimated £325 million . Her older brother, Prince Turki bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al Saud is not willing to give up the riches, made up of cash, jewels and property in Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Egypt and Lebanon.

Princess Sara bint Talal bin Abdulaziz, who is now 38 years old, is accusing senior Saudi officials of plotting to kidnap her and smuggle her back to her country. To protect herself she is going public with her accusations and claiming political asylum in the UK. As of now, she and her children are living in a suite and several rooms in a five-star London hotel, which is constantly guarded by a private security team.

Now she wants nothing to do with that life and just wants her safety.
