Janan’s book “The Saudi King & I” reveals the true and tragic story of a fairy tale romance that began when she was 19, and ended in tears of despair. It tells of Janan’s affection for the king she married and her struggle since to recover earnings she entrusted
Online PR News – 20-May-2012 – London, UK, May 18, 2012 – London, UK, May 18, 2012 -- Janan Harb Al-Saud has finally written a warts-and-all account of her life with King Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, entitled “The Saudi King & I”, which reveals intricate details about their life together in Al-Sharafiya Palace, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
As a matter of courtesy, Janan sent a first draft of the book to the Saudi Crown Prince, Nayef Bin Abdul Aziz, in an attempt to explain the detailed circumstances of how the money came to be owed to her, and in the hope of reconciliation. King Fahd’s son, Prince Mohammed Bin Fahd was graceful enough to send Janan a negotiator to achieve a resolution and thus stop publication of the book.
“At the age of 65,” Janan said, “I believe it’s time for me to recoup what I earned during my life with the king, in whatever way is open to me. As explained in my book, this money was the result of a business deal that I initiated and has nothing to do with inheritance or alimony.”
Talks with the negotiator having broken down, Janan is proposing to proceed with her plan to auction the book to a publishing house and is also in the expectation of selling the film rights.
Janan Harb was born in Palestine in 1947 as a Christian but converted to Islam when she married Prince Fahd in March 1968. Three years later, she was ejected from her palace in Saudi Arabia by his brother, Prince Turki, in tragic circumstances.
