It was interesting to see how the official newspapers covered his visit after years of neglect. You can see the following links from Al Ahram :
- King Ahmed Fouad in the ancestors' hospitality "27/4/10"
- Filfil presents coffee to the former king Ahmed Fouad "28/4/10"
- The last king of Egypt : Al Ahram is the lighthouse of journalism in the Middle East. "29/4/10"
- Farouk Hosni receives Ahmed Fouad in his house "7/5/10"
From among all the TV channels in Egypt On TV scored the only televised interview for Ahmed Fouad II and unfortunately they blew it up. As soon as I had known that Fouad was going to speak on On TV I thought that he would sit and chitchat with famous and friendly Tarek Habib , it was a natural guess due to the experience of Habib in hosting former royalties and presenting his special documentary series " The revolution files" which was natural but I was wrong as Fouad did not sit with him. Before you guess he did not sit with Youssry Fouda either , he sit with some TV hostess who was smiling foolishly as she were interviewing 5 years old kid as you can see below :
It was so painful and sad that he was trying to speak Arabic and she wants us to know that she is a bimboo at the same time !!
I could not cover the visit because it came during all that jazz we had from protests and sit ins but I followed the news of the former Royal family very well. Already the Ahmed Fouad II branch from the family was witnessing a lot of drama from two months ago when we found his daughter Fawzia Latifa in Cairo after a legal fight with her mother. It seemed that Dominique has seen karma as her offspring from Ahmed Fouad II sued her in front of the French courts. It was just another episode from the misfortune this family is witnessing since very long time , that curse to be precise !!
