I had the best privilege I had ever had of meeting Ahmed last year.
What's your opinion? and why?
Thanks in advance.
haha! Thanks, but I would like to know how to use the comma instead of "of"?
Meeting Ahmed last year was the greatest privilege I've ever had.
This avoids the awkward "I had... I had ever had" structure.
Unless something changed to give you an ever greater experience afterwards, you don't want "I had ever had" - you want "I have ever had."

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

That sounds more natural and less sycophantic to me.
