A Saudi Arabian princess who had an illegitimate child with a British man has been granted asylum in the UK, the Independent newspaper has reported.
It said the married woman was allowed to stay after telling a judge that her affair left her at risk of being stoned to death in her home country.
The woman, who has been given anonymity by a court, is married to a member of the Saudi royal family, the paper said.
The Home Office declined to comment on the case.
The Independent says the woman is one of a small number of Saudi Arabian citizens whose asylum claims are not acknowledged publicly by either country's government.
