Mohamed Al-Fayed, former owner of the famed Harrods department store in London, has passed away at the age of 94. The news was confirmed by the football club he once owned, where he had spent a significant part of his life mourning the loss of his son, who died in a car crash with Princess Diana.
Al-Fayed, a successful Egyptian businessman, was devastated by the death of his son, Dodi Fayed, who tragically lost his life 26 years ago in a car accident in Paris alongside Princess Diana. Since then, Al-Fayed had dedicated his life to grieving for his beloved son.
“On behalf of everyone at Fulham Football Club, I send my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mohamed Al Fayed upon the news of his passing at age 94,” stated Shahid Khan, Al-Fayed’s successor as the club’s owner, on the club’s website. “I join our supporters around the world in celebrating the memory of Mohamed Al Fayed, whose legacy will always be at the heart of our tradition at Fulham Football Club.”
