London, Aug 23 (ANI): The former owner of Harrods' Mohamed al-Fayed has revealed that he ordered the removal of the store's royal warrants and burned as they were a "curse" on the famous shop.
Fayed said the endorsements, which were removed in 2000, were from the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the late Queen Mother and the Prince of Wales.
"I ordered their removal. Later, I had them burned. They were a curse and business tripled following their removal," the Scotsman quoted him as saying.
Fayed has attacked the Royal Family on several occasions since the deaths of his son Dodi and Diana, Princess of Wales in a Paris car crash in 1997.
He accused the Duke of Edinburgh of "masterminding" the deaths and described the royals as "that Dracula family". (ANI)
