Prince Ali Rescue was a quest for both free-to-play and pay-to-play players. It was removed after 11 years on 26 September 2012 when Jagex replaced it with two, more modern-style quests, Stolen Hearts and Diamond in the Rough, retaining only the global plot of Prince Ali Rescue. Players who had done Prince Ali Rescue before its removal are still able to do Stolen Hearts.
|Prince Ali of Al Kharid has been kidnapped by the scheming Lady Keli. You are hired to stage a rescue mission.|
The starting point for the quest
You begin your quest in the palace of Al-Kharid, by talking to Chancellor Hassan, who could be found pacing in the largest room of the Al Kharid palace. If the player asked him if he needed any help, he would will direct you to a shifty-looking fellow, who goes by the name of Osman, near the northern perimeter of the palace.
The player would then exit the palace and meet with Osman. He would tell you that Prince Ali, Al Kharid's heir to the throne, has been kidnapped by a certain Lady Keli, who plans to hold the prince for ransom. Fortunately, Osman has a plan to save the prince - tie up Lady Keli, and disguise the prince, to look like his abductor, and finally escape in plain sight.
Osman directed you to his daughter, Leela, who could be found strolling east of Draynor Village, near the field.
What's The Game Plan?
Leela at Draynor Village
The fastest way of reaching Leela was by using the Lodestone network to Draynor Village. The player would talk to Leela and she would tell you what you needed. If you looked west from where you are standing, when talking to Leela, you would see Ned's house. Getting a rope from him, using either 15 coins or 4 balls of wool. Also, ask him to make a wig for you, from the remaining balls of wool.
For members who have completed The Fremennik Isles, you can go to Ned without coins. Ask him for a rope, and say you don't enough coins and tell him that his rope smells like Yak. He will confess he doesn't really make his ropes and will give you a rope for free. You can repeat this several times and get an unlimited amount of ropes.
Walk west to Aggie's house and ask her to make you a yellow dye (using two onions). Dye the wig yellow, to make it look like Keli's blonde hair.
Further, ask Aggie about a skin paste, to lighten Ali's skin tone. Aggie says that she needs a few items to make it - ashes, a pot of flour, redberries and water. Hand over the items to her, in exchange for the paste.

Get your soft clay, as your next stop is the jail, located immediately southeast of Draynor. The guards are level 26, though they aren't aggressive.
Go inside the jailhouse building. If Lady Keli isn't in or around the building, wait a little, she'll respawn soon. Talk to her about anything other than Katrine. Tell her that she's famous all over RuneScape. Then ask her about her latest plan and that she must have been very skillful. Then ask her if she's sure that they won't try to break Prince Ali out. She'll tell you it's not possible because there's only one key to Prince Ali's cell and it's on the necklace around her neck.
Ask her if you can see the key for just a moment. Then ask to touch the key. You should have a soft clay with you at this time to make an imprint onto the clay. If you forgot it, you will have to retrieve it and repeat this whole dialogue all over again.
