Malika Oufkir tells her dramatic and true life story in her memoir. She spent her childhood in Morocco’s royal household, as companion to the King’s daughter, but when her father was implicated in an attempt on the King’s life, she and the rest of her family were imprisoned in a penal colony. She joins Diane to talk about going from the privilege of the palace to fifteen years of imprisonment, and about how she managed to escape.
