In the 1971 Moroccan coup d’état attempt, Lamia was almost executed but spared at the last minute when rebel soldiers realized she was pregnant. The prince, however, was injured with several gunshot wounds.
The prince passed away in 1983 due to cancer at the young age of 48. Lamia decided to remain in Rabat, Morocco. Today, she is the president of the Alaouite Organization for the Promotion of the Blind in Morocco.
Interestingly, she was not the only sibling to marry into royalty in the family. Her sister, Mona Al-Solh, was married to the Saudi Prince Talal bin Abdulaziz and is the mother of Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, Prince Khalid bin Talal, and Princess Reema bint Talal.
Her youngest sister is Leila Al-Solh, a former Lebanese minister of industry and the vice president of her nephew’s Alwaleed Philanthropies, formerly called Al-Waleed bin Talal Foundation.
