Personal life

Born in Surrey, England, 27 September 1950, Raja Petra Kamarudin was educated at the Alice Smith School. At the age of 13 he went to further his studies at the Malay College Kuala Kangsar, completing his education at the Victoria Institution. As his father died when he was only 22, he had to forgo university education and begin working to support his mother and three younger siblings. Raja Petra began work as both owner of a motorcycle dealership and rice distributor. He has been fascinated with motorcycles since he was young. He was known amongst Malaysian motorcycle aficionados as the first one to introduce Yamaha and other Japanese brands to the country.

On April 14, 1973, at the age of 23 years old, he married Marina Lee binti Abdullah who was then 18 years old. Marina Lee Abdullah, of Siamese-Chinese extraction,[5][6] is a book publisher.[1] Raja Petra and Marina have five children, Raja Suraya (1974); Raja Azman (1977); Raja Shahril (1978); Raja Azmir (1983); and Raja Sara (1988)[1]; and four grandchildren.

Raja Petra is a member of the Selangor royal family. He is the nephew of the late Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, the eleventh Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King) of Malaysia and the seventh Sultan of Selangor.[7] His royal lineage traces back to his paternal grandmother Tengku Badariah, who is the elder sister of Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah, the second Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia and the sixth Sultan of Selangor. His paternal grandfather, Raja Tun Uda Al-Haj Bin Raja Muhammad, a distant cousin of his wife's family, was the first Yang di-Pertua Negeri of Penang (1957-1967) and Malaysian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom. His father, Raja Kamarudin bin Raja Tun Uda, studied law in the United Kingdom and worked for Unilever until his death. His mother, Che' Bariya Kamarudin (née Barbara Mabel Parnell) is Welsh.[7]

Hari ini RPK ingin menghapuskan institusi raja di Malaysia. RPK telah melanggar prinsip Rukun Negara, Beliau boleh diibaratkan sebagai Penderhaka Melayu zaman moden. Apa pula komen sepupunya YM Sultan Selangor.-TM
