Fez- Princess Lalla Slama, consort of King Mohammed VI, was chosen “most inspiring woman” for Arabs in a poll organized by the Washington-based Radio Sawa on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
In the poll posted in the Radio’s website, readers had to choose between 10 female Arab women, including Queen Rania of Jordan, Sheikha Loubna El Kassimi, Minister of International Trade of the United Arab Emirates, Samira Rajab, Minister of State in charge of communication, spokesperson of the government of Bahrain, Dounia Batma, a Moroccan singer, who qualified to the final of the 2012 edition of Arab Idol.
According to Radio Sawa, among the 10 Arab women, Lalla Salma garnered the votes of half of readers who participated in the poll.
Princess Lala Salma is very popular in Morocco. In addition to her philanthropic activities, especially in the fight against cancer, she is considered by many Moroccans as the Ambassador of Moroccan women’s elegance.
She has been chosen twice as the most elegant woman among the Queens and Princesses who attended a King’s coronation or a Princess’ wedding. In May 2013, she was elected the most elegant woman attending the coronation ceremony of the new Dutch King, Willem-Alexander as his mother Queen Beatrix abdicated the throne after 33 years.
In 2011, readers of the UK’s magazine Hello voted Princess Lalla Salma as the most elegant and attractive woman in the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, which took place in London on April 29, 2011.
