Memorial to Noor Inayat Khan

The Princess Royal has unveiled a sculpture of Noor Inayat Khan, a WWII agent dubbed the “Spy Princess” by her biographer Shrabani Basu, in London’s Gordon Square Gardens.

 

Raised in Britain and France and a descendant of Indian royalty, bilingual Noor Inayat Khan was recruited by the elite Special Operations Executive (SOE) in 1942 to work in Paris as a radio operator.
