A former Qatari princess who was found dead in a luxury penthouse had tried to give away belongings to her cleaning lady in the days leading up to her death, sources say.

Kasia Gallanio, 45, who died of a suspected drug overdose, is said to have sent her co-worker a video showing bags of clothes she wanted to give her.

Ms Gallanio, the ex-wife of Qatari Prince Abdelaziz bin Khalifa Al Thani, has been found dead by Spanish authorities at her home in Marbella, southern Spain.

During an interview shared on her Instagram page weeks before her death, the ex-princess revealed how marrying for money was a “curse”.

Ms Gallanio and her ex-husband had reportedly endured a decades-long acrimonious custody battle after allegations surfaced that Prince Abdelaziz had sexually assaulted the eldest of their three children – he strongly denies.

In the days leading up to her death, Ms Gallanio reportedly sent a video to cleaner Teodora Poma saying he wanted to give her bags of designer clothes.

Ms Poma, 43, believes the former princess may have done it because she knew she was going to take her own life, Mail Online reports.

She didn’t get an answer when she answered, said the cleaning lady.

At the time of her death, she was locked in a custody battle with her ex-husband over their three daughters – twins aged 17 and a 15-year-old.

Ms Poma said: “She was a really lovely person, very loving and a real fighter for her daughters.”

Describing the video message she received, she said, “She may have said goodbye by trying to give me all this stuff.”

The couple married in 2004 and following their divorce, Ms Gallanio was denied custody of their children so they lived with their father in Paris on the luxurious Avenue Montaigne in Paris.

The body of the 46-year-old Qatari princess was discovered by Spanish authorities just days after she was reportedly told by a Paris court that her custody requests could not be granted.

According to the El Pais newspaper, her youngest daughter told police that she had not been able to contact her mother for days.

El Pais said several officers entered the Marbella apartment complex around 8am on Sunday and discovered her body.

An autopsy will be carried out to determine the cause of death, but initial evidence suggests she died of a drug overdose, police said.

Speaking to chat show Women’s World Show, Ms Gallanio said: “There have been a lot of articles in the press about custody [battle] going straight.

“So after a couple of years I decided it’s time to say something, it’s time to let people know that not everything is glamorous and perfect, that I’m struggling and going through things too.

“It was difficult, not only for me but also for the children.”

She said she gets a lot of messages from women who are either stuck in marriage or controlled by their husbands, “especially in the Middle East.”

She added: “I think money is actually a curse because it isolates you from a lot of people. It’s a different world, I grew up in a normal household, so it was a completely different world for me.

“I grew up in the States, so coming into the royal family as an American was completely new.”

She said freedom is “the most important thing” and spoke about how much she appreciates being able to go out and do things she wants to do rather than just being isolated.

The interviewer then asks, “in a golden cage?” and Ms. Gallanio says, “in a golden cage, right.”

She expressed her sadness at not being able to speak to her 15-year-old daughter, who is being cared for by her father in Paris.

Her ex-husband is the nephew of the current Emir of Qatar and now lives in Paris after being exiled during a 1995 coup.

Galliano said her children get many material things from their father, but the youngest isn’t allowed to talk to her, “which makes me very sad,” she says.
