H.I.H. Princess Ayşe Gülnev Sultan lives in Sussex, England with her family and spends the summers near Bodrum, Turkey.  She is a director of property investment and development companies, and writes and researches historical pieces on Ottoman history.
Without any exception, all members of the Imperial Ottoman family were exiled in 1924. Most had never left their homeland before, and all were forced to make a new life abroad. The family departed from Sirkeci Train Station, and would disperse across Europe, the United States and the Middle East. H.I.H. Princess Ayşe Gülnev Sultan's grandparents, H.I.H. Prince (Şehzade) Ali Vâsib Efendi and H.I.H. Princess Emine Mükbile both settled in Nice, France. As the former Ottoman Sultan, H.I.M. Sultan Mehmed VI Vahideddin, had settled in San Remo, many members of the family had congregated to the South of France. After living in Switzerland for a short time, the last Caliph of Islam H.I.H. Prince (Şehzade) Abdulmecid II, also moved to Nice. The travel documents issued by the Turkish Republic to the Ottoman family on their exile were only valid for one year. Therefore, by 1925 members of the family were no longer able to travel, and it was due to the intervention of H.I.H. Prince (Şehzade) Ali Vasıb Efendi that the family received courtesy passports from the French Government. The French Government also issued passports to the children of the members of the family who were born in exile, and H.I.H. Princess Ayşe Gülnev Sultan's father, H.I.H. Prince (Şehzade) Osman Selaheddin Osmanoğlu received such a passport. H.I.H. Princess Ayşe Gülnev Sultan was born in England at a time when her father was still not allowed to return to Turkey, and she received a British passport. In 2008, together with her brothers H.I.H. Prince Orhan Murad Osmanoğlu and H.I.H. Prince Selim Süleyman Osmanoğlu, she received Turkish citizenship and obtained a Turkish passport.
Resurgence of interest in the Ottoman Dynasty
Since the turn of this century there has been a growing interest in the living members of the Ottoman family, both within Turkey and abroad.
In 2006, family members met at Dolmabahçe Palace for the presentation of the documentary "Osmanoğlu'nun Exile" produced by TRT (Turkish Radio and Television Corporation). This documentary followed the stories of the members of the Ottoman family who went into exile in 1924, following the establishment of the Turkish Republic and the abolition of the Ottoman Caliphate. It then follows the stories of their descendants, who now live in Turkey, Europe, the United States and throughout the Middle East. Extensive coverage of this event, and the success of the documentary series has dramatically raised the profile of the Imperial Family.
In July 2010 H.I.H. Princess Ayşe Gülnev Sultan held a party to celebrate the 70th birthday of her father H.I.H. Prince (Şehzade) Osman Selaheddin Osmanoğlu . This event was attended by a number of members of the Ottoman family, including Sultanzade H.R.H Prince Ali bin Naif of Jordan and Sultanzade H.R.H Prince Abbas Hilmi. A string quartet played Ottoman Court music composed by members of the Imperial family and conducted by Emre Aracı.
