Prince Charles Raises Eyebrows Over Donation From Osama bin Laden’s Family

Prince Charles reportedly accepted a donation from an unlikely source nine years ago, according to a report from London’s The Sunday Times.

The Prince of Wales—first in line to the British throne behind his mother, Queen Elizabeth II—received a $1.2 million charity donation from former al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden’s half-brothers (Bakr bin Laden and Shafiq bin Laden) in 2013, the outlet reports. The donation apparently followed a meeting between Charles and Bakr at Clarence House in October 2013. The prince reportedly accepted the donation on behalf of his charity, The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund (PWCF). Although Osama bin Laden’s family publicly disowned him in 1994, Charles was allegedly urged by key advisers not to accept the donation.
