Mystery of the Missing Princess

Mystery of the Missing Princess

Available on BBC Select, Prime Video
It reads like a work of fiction. In 2018, Princess Latifa, daughter of Dubai’s ruler, fled to India hoping to eventually reach America and start a new life. But she was soon captured, taken home and silenced. Then a video emerged – she’d wanted it to be released if her escape failed. This remarkable film pieces together Latifa’s life, where apparent privilege hid a litany of repression and abuse.
