The last King and Queen of Afghanistan

September 2, 2021

According to the Royal Central:

From Italy, the King… was able to return [to Afghanistan] at the age of 87, following the end of Taliban rule. Some spoke of restoring the monarchy, but in the end, this did not happen.

The exiled King outlived his wife for another five years – dying on 23 July 2007 in the compound of the presidential palace in Kabul. He, too, was buried in the Royal Mausoleum. His son, Crown Prince Ahmad Shah, succeeded him in the titular title of King of Afghanistan. He lives in the United States.
