Prince Charles is again criticized for allegedly questionable donations. Did his foundation accept payments from Osama Bin Laden’s family?

Once again, Prince Charles (73) and his foundation The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation (PWCF) are the subject of massive criticism. Indeed, the so-called Sunday Times revelations the fiercest allegations the royal has faced to date. According to the report, his foundation accepted a donation of one million pounds (about 1.2 million euros) from the family of terrorist Osama bin Laden (1957-2011) in 2013.

According to research by the “Sunday Times”, the money passed through Bakr and Shafiq bin Laden, two half-brothers of the former leader of Al-Qaeda, who pulled the strings of the attacks of September 11, 2001. Osama bin Laden was killed during an American special forces operation in 2011. Two years later, Charles Bakr received Bin Laden for a private interview at Clarence House, his official residence in London. Immediately afterwards, the funds poured in, it is said.

Prince Charles should have nothing to do with such a deal, according to royal circles. It is also untrue that he accepted the money despite the concerns of his advisers. However, there has been no official statement yet from the British Royal Family on the serious allegations.

A long list of questionable donations

Once again, Prince Charles and his foundation are the center of attention in a negative way. It was only recently that it was said that between 2011 and 2015, the Royal had accepted a total of three cash donations from the desert state of Qatar totaling three million euros. Some of the money was stuffed in cash into shopping bags at London’s luxury department store Fortnum & Mason.

Although this form of donation is not prohibited in principle, the procedure in Great Britain has been very controversial for years. Prince Charles has come under fire repeatedly after cash payments from Russian and Saudi elites became known. Opponents of the British monarchy are calling for an immediate ban on such cash donations to the royal family. Proponents of these claims should feel reaffirmed by the latest allegations.
