The family of

Osama bin Laden donated

£1,000,000

to Prince Charles

The contribution was made by Osama bin Laden's two half-brothers, who were also responsible for the Sep 11 attacks of 2001.

In 2013, Osama bin Laden's family donated one million pounds to Prince Charles' charity, The Prince of Wales' Charitable Fund.

According to the UK newspaper The Sunday Times, Charles, 73, personally accepted money from Bakr and Shafiq bin Laden.

While denying some of the allegations in the article, a Clarence House spokeswoman did admit that the organisation had indeed take the funds.

We have confirmation from The Prince of Wales' Charitable Fund that careful due investigation was done before receiving this contribution. The charity's Trustees alone made the choice to accept.

According to The Sunday Times, Clarence House and the Prince of Wales Charitable Fund had encouraged Charles not to take the money (PWCF).

Charles did not personally take the contribution, a Clarence House spokeswoman informed Fox News Digital.

According to the source, neither Bakr nor Shafiq bin Laden have ever been connected to any terrorist activities. Their father, Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, is a relative of Osama.

After establishing the BinLadin Group, he went on to become the richest non-royal, according to the outlet. In 1967, he perished in an aircraft disaster.

Charles' staff claimed there was any illegality in the heir to the British throne collecting money donations in the form of suitcases full of cash from a politician from Qatar.
