Tengku Amir was born on 12 December 1990, as the third child and first son of the then Raja Muda of Selangor, Tengku Idris Shah. His mother, Cik Puan Nur Lisa Idris binti Abdullah (Lisa Davis before her conversion to Islam), was born in the United States.[1] As such, he has half American ancestry.

He graduated in April 2016.[6]

He is a patron of a few charitable organisations, including Cheshire Home and the Raja Muda of Selangor Foundation (Yayasan Raja Muda Selangor) since 2003.[5]

In the statement, Tengku Amir said that although he is flattered by the support received by him from the people to take over Selangor FA, he believed that FAS requires someone with more experience to lead the body.[11][12]
