Charles, Prince of Wales received a £1million donation to his charity from relatives of Osama Bin Ladenwho is considered the mastermind of the September 11 attacks.

What happened: The future King of the United Kingdom allegedly took the payment Bakr bin Ladenthe patriarch of the Saudi family, and his brother Shafiq in 2013, according to the Sunday Times report.

The donation came two years after Laden was shot dead by US special forces at a compound near Islamabad, Pakistan.

The report noted that Prince Charles approved the donation despite objections from advisers Clarence house and the Charity Fund of the Prince of Wales (PWCF) where the money was donated.

What the report says: According to the publication’s sources, several of Charles’ advisers, including one of the trustees, had personally asked Charles to return the money. They even told the prince that “it wouldn’t be good for anyone” if the media found out he accepted money from the family of the perpetrator of the worst terrorist attack in history.

However, the royal family member is said to have felt too embarrassed to return the money as they would suspect the reason.

Clarence House denied the news report and said the decision to accept the donation to the Prince of Wales Charity Fund was made solely by trustees.

“Due diligence was carried out, gathering information from a variety of sources, including the government. The decision to accept the donation was made entirely by the trustees. Any attempt to suggest otherwise is misleading and inaccurate,” it said.
