It was the middle of summer when my husband, Prince Ahmed bin Salman, proposed.

It was a fairy-tale proposal that I will never forget.
I married a Saudi Arabian prince and moved to his home country. It was a culture shock, to say the least. I had to adjust to living in a palace, wearing traditional clothing, and being waited on hand and foot. But I soon grew to love my new life and wouldn't trade it for anything.
I married a Saudi Arabian prince, and my life changed overnight. I became a royal and had to learn all the customs and protocols that came with it. It was a lot of work, but it was also an incredible experience. I got to travel the world, meet amazing people, and live a life of luxury.
I still can’t believe that I am a princess. It all started when my husband, Prince Fahd, and I met at a party in London. We hit it off immediately and began dating.

In Saudi Arabia, there is a lot of pressure to marry a local man or an Arab man. This is because it is seen as more traditional and appropriate. However, I have found that this isn't always the case. There are many benefits to marrying a foreigner, including the fact that they are often more open-minded and accepting of different cultures. Additionally, they tend to be more financially stable and can provide a higher standard of living for their families.
