The funds were transferred to one of the prince’s charities, according to the royal residence.

Prince Charles of Wales received bags with millions of euros in cash from a influential Qatari politician and investor during personal meetings, according to statements by a representative of the prince’s official residence.

A total of three million euros (3.17 million dollars) were delivered in three batches to Carlos by Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, former Prime Minister of Qatar. On one occasion the money was in a suitcase, on another in a travel bag and the latest in bags from Fortnum & Mason, the high-end store that supplies food products to the royal residence, informs The Guadian.

The deliveries were made during meetings between Queen Elizabeth II’s son and the Sheikh, including a face-to-face meeting at Charles’s official residence, Clarence House, in 2015.

A Clarence House spokesman confirmed that during that meeting, the money “was immediately passed on to one of the charities of the prince, who carried out the pertinent agreements and ensured that all the correct processes were followed”.

The suitcase with cash was delivered to two advisors of Carlos, who counted the money manually. Palace aides are said to have asked Coutts, a private bank that acts for the royal family, to collect the money. payments were illegal. Trustees of the PWCF charity confirmed that the donation was made in 2015 in cash at the donor’s choice and that a special audit was carried out which revealed no violations.

The sheikh is one of the richest people in the world: he owns the football club Paris Saint Germain and is known for huge investments in London, including real estate such as Shard, Harrods and InterContinental London Park Lane.

The London Metropolitan Police and the England Charity Commission are investigating charitable practices in Carlos’ environment for suspicion of the sale of honors by his assistants.
