The Saudi Royal Court mourned Princess Jawaher bint Abdulaziz bin Abdullah bin Jalawi, one of the founding King Abdulaziz Al Saud’s granddaughters, on Monday evening.
The late princess belonged to the Al Jalawi branch of the large Al Saud family that first ruled the kingdom in the eighteenth century before the country was united under their rule nearly 90 years ago.
Her grandfather, Prince Abdullah bin Jalawi, was one of the most prominent princes who accompanied the founding King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman in the wars to unify the kingdom.
Her father, Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah bin Jalawi, also married the daughter of the founding king, Princess Dalil bin Abdulaziz, where they had the late Princess Jawaher, and her sister Princess Maha, the wife of Prince Nahar bin Saud bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
Like most of the princes and princesses of the ruling family, the late princess remained out of the limelight and did not occupy any official position in her life.
According to a statement issued by the Saudi Royal Court, the funeral prayer will be held on Tuesday, after the afternoon prayer at the Imam Turki bin Abdullah Mosque in the city of Riyadh.
The number of princes and princesses of the Al Saud family is estimated in the thousands, a few of them hold government positions, while some of them excelled in the world of money, business, sports, and art, and the largest number of them kept their private lives away from the limelight.
