Princess Ameerah Al Taweel – The unusual Saudi Princess
There are many Saudi princesses that one would never hear about. After all it’s Saudi Arabia we are talking about, a country which is a tale of a life behind the veil. Princess Ameerah Al Taweel, wife of Prince AlWaleed Bin Talal, stands out as a social and cultural anomaly to this preconceived prototype of Saudi women. A commoner, who married a prince, is now turning out to be an emerging iconic public figure. Her humanitarian and philanthropic efforts spread wide globally. Especially, her efforts towards the empowerment of women in Saudi Arabia. She has spoken out publicly in several International channels and publications and has also spoken at the 2011 Clinton Global Initiative.
