Al Fayed's Rage "The grieving father has some wild ideas about the deaths of Princess Di and Dodi. A bungled French probe will only fuel his fire." Premier issue TALK Magazine, September 1999 By Gerald Posner Mohammed Al Fayed is sitting in a beige and green conference room in the fifth-floor executive offices of Harrods, the fabled London department store he bought in 1985 for a cool $670 million. It is but one of his many assets. The 66-year-old Egyptian native counts among his treasures a 14th-century castle in the Scottish Highlands, stately apartment buildings lining London's Hyde Park, and a sprawling estate in St. Tropez. He owns the venerable satirical magazine Punch, the storied Fulham Football Club, and, along with his brother Ali, Turnbull & Asser, the elegant Jermyn Street shirtmaker. He commands a small fleet of private jets - the Executive Gulfstream IV is his favorite - boasts a sterling collection of vintage cars, and relaxes in the south of France on the Sakara, one of the world's most luxurious sailing yachts.
