Saudi princess caught while leaving hotel without paying 6-million-euro bill
Saudi princess Maha Al-Sudani was caught trying to leave the Shangri-La hotel in Paris without paying a six million euro ($7.4 million) bill for her luxury suite.
Maha al-Sudani, the former wife of Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Nayef ben Abdel Aziz, tried to walk out on 3:30 am Thursday without paying for her suite and those of her 60-strong entourage, prompting staff to call in police.
The Saudi Arabian ambassador was also contacted during the incident, added Le Parisien, which noted that Sudani enjoys diplomatic immunity.
The princess has already had previous run-ins over unpaid bills. In 2009, fashion chain Key Largo went to court to obtain 89,000 euros owed by the princess.
