The plotline reads like an international high-society drama: A glamorous princess, fleeing her marriage to an aging Gulf potentate, is said to seek shelter in the poshest precincts of London.

In the background are two intermingled Mid-east monarchies, a looming court battle and a dark tale of the abduction and abuse of at least one other female royal.
