The world has been stunned after the revelation of the secret relationship between Prince Charles and the late Osama Bin Laden, the most terrorizing individual on the planet.
According to the Sunday Times, the family of Osama Bin Laden gave the Prince of Wales a payment of £1 million.
Let’s explore more about the concerning matter.
Did Prince Charles know Osama Bin Laden?
The world has been stunned by the shocking news of Prince Charles’s rumored link with the deceased Al Quaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. However, the rumor is completely false.
Osama bin Laden’s family sent the Prince of Wales a $1 million donation for his charity. According to The Sunday Times, Bakr bin Laden, the head of the Saudi family, and his brother Shafiq gave the future king the money.
However, there is little evidence that Bin Laden’s half-brothers were involved in his operations after his family abandoned him in 1994.
According to publications, on October 30, 2013, two years after US special forces killed Osama bin Laden at a facility close to Islamabad in Pakistan, Prince Charles, 73, met privately with Bakr, 76, at Clarence House in London.
The donation was given to The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund (PWCF).
PWCF had convinced Clarence House that “thorough due diligence” had been done, and the trustees were in charge of deciding whether or not to accept the funds.
Similarly, the BBC was told by a source at the Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund that “the crimes of the father” — that is, Osama Bin Laden — should not prevent other family members from giving, which is logical.
Is it ethical?
Osama Bin Laden headed the US’s “most wanted” list. He is thought to have given the orders for the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington on September 11, 2001 (famously known as 9/11), which resulted in the deaths of over 3,000 people, including 67 Britons. The US troops assassinated him in 2011.
“Though the name [Bin Laden] has a tragic past, the father’s misdeeds should not be punished on the remainder of the family, which is an eminent one in the region,” a PWCF source told the BBC.
Additionally, the source further stated that the donation had received approval from the Foreign Office.
