Marriage of Ashraf Pahlavi and Mehdi Bushehri

The Princess wrote that she planned to “fight these slanders with all my means and through whatever judicial means are available.” Psychologically, Ashraf Pahlavi had low self-esteem when she was younger. She did not like “what she saw in the mirror.” She “wished for someone else’s face,…, fairer skin, and more height.” She always imagined that “there were so few people in this world shorter than I.”
