Born on June 30th 1930, the eldest of three children, member of the Egyptian Royal Family, great-great-granddaughter of Mohamed Ali Pasha on my fathers side and two more greats on my mothers side…” Drawn from her own diary, as well as that of her mother and grandmother, Princess Nevine Halim takes us on a journey from one world war to the next, from Egypt to Europe and the U.S., from a world of privilege to social pariah. We meet her father, the charming rebel prince who clashed with the King and championed the poor. Social whirl, political intrigue, royal gossip, young love, the fairy-tale kingdom unravels as princes and princesses dance at the edge.
