The picture of Princess Hayfa bint Abdullah al-Saud, in the driver’s seat carrying leather gloves and excessive heels, is on the the front cover of Vogue Arabia’s June edition, published as the conservative kingdom prepares to carry a riding ban on women.
The difficulty is committed to the “trailblazing ladies of Saudi Arabia” and lauds the reforms launched by means of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who has sought to loosen social restrictions in the conservative kingdom and curb the powers of religious hardliners.
“In our country, there are some conservatives who fear change. For many, it’s all they have known,” Princess Hayfa, the daughter of the late King Abdullah, was quoted as saying in the magazine.
“Personally, I support these changes with extremely good enthusiasm,” introduced the princess, whose cowl image used to be shot in the wilderness outdoor the western city of Jeddah.
