“The princess is doing fine but will be seeking medical expertise,” Estramant added. “She seems worn out but is in good spirits, and thankful to reunite with her sons in person.”

It is not known what treatment she was seeking abroad when she was detained in 2019.

Announcing her released on Twitter, the ALQST for Human Rights said she had been “denied the medical care she needed for a potentially life threatening condition” during her time in the Al-Ha’ir prison, on the outskirts of the capital.

The Saudi rights group added. “At no point during her detention has any charge been levelled against her.”

Princess Basma is the youngest daughter of King Saud, who ruled Saudi Arabia between 1953 and 1964.

She is the youngest child of the deceased King Saud.
