Early life

Prince Muhammad Abdul Moneim was born at the Montaza Palace, near Alexandriamarker. His father Abbas II was the reigning Khedive and so Prince Muhammad Abdul Moneim became heir apparent immediately following his birth and was given with title Hereditary Prince. He was educated at Fribourgmarker, Switzerlandmarker. Following the Ottoman Empire's entry into World War I, Prince Muhammad Abdul Moneim's father Abbas II was deposed by Britain on December 18, 1914 for supporting the Ottomans in the War. His father was replaced on the throne by his uncle Husayn Kamil thereby bypassing Prince Muhammad Abdul Moneim who was now demoted in the line of succession. He was created His Highness in 1922. Later he would serve as President of the Egyptian Olympic Committee from 1934 until 1938. In 1939 he was appointed President of the Arab delegation to the Palestine Conference in Londonmarker in 1939.


Following the abdication of King Farouk, Prince Muhammad Abdul Moneim served as Chairman of the Council of Egyptian Regency from 26 July 1952 to 18 June 1953 for the infant King Fuad II, being created His Royal Highness in 1952.
