Loyals and Friends of Pahlavi Family gather in Memory of Late Princess
In the garden,
by the roses
'Please Don't pick up the flowers'
the wind, doesn't know how to read
Poem written For Leila by an Iranian Compatiot
June 10th is a sad day for the Pahlavi Royal Family in exile. It is marked by a simple gathering in the Passy Cemetary in Paris ever since the demise of the youngest daughter of the Shahbanou Farah, the former Empress of Iran in 2001.
The cause of her death due to depression and a long nurtured grief over the years since the loss of her father, the Last Shah of Iran can certainly explain her unsurmountable pain. Rather than explanations, the family, friends and all those who continue to cherish her memory, prefer to honor the beautiful and joyful looking young princess.
She rests in Peace amongst hundreds of flowers deposed by her compatriots.
