The 42nd anniversary of the death of the Shah of Iran in Cairo

Empress Diba, or Farah Pahlavi as she is also known, is famous for her annual commemoration of her husband’s death. She leads members of the Pahlavi family, along with veterans and royal supporters from Europe and the US, to Al-Rifai every year, where the shah is buried next to his father, Shah Reza Pahlavi.
