Press photo with caption dated 2 August 1952: “Capri, Italy…..Ex-King Farouk poses with his wife, Narriman, their son, infant King Ahmed Fuad, and three daughters by Farouk’s former marriage at the sanctuary he has found in Capri. The daughters are Princess Ferial 13, Princess Fawzia 12 and Princess Fadia 8. The photograph was made at a press conference at which Farouk explained he was permitting photographs in hopes that he and his family would be permitted to live like private citizens hereafter. He denied stories of great wealth stashed away in various countries and said he was actually a ‘poor man.'”
