Hi Shera, the engagement has always been officially announced in sheikh Hamdan's website since 23-12-2008 and the announcement was made in the sheikh Hamdan's news forum and it was not only approved but also signed by the forum's management team. And it has been there till date.

No he is not married yet, but has been engaged since 23 Dec 2008 to Sheikha Sheikha bint Saeed bin Thani Al Maktoum.
No Darling, i haven't heard anything about the wedding.

Yes it is normal, its just like any other couple who get engaged and stay engaged for a few years.
It has nothing to do with Islam/religion.

Does anyone know why we have not yet seen Hamdan and Sheikha Sheikha together at any events? His sister Sheikha used to go to events when Nasser was there, like horsey stuff. So it can't be about tradition. I still think this engagement is just a rumour started on the net. All of these false wedding dates etc...I have yet to believe any of it. Just IMO.

I understand that the absence of official announcements and the fact that the wedding has not yet happened may lead some members to doubt that CP Hamdan is engaged.
Post #185 above gives a credible source. Failing that, there are contributors to this Forum who have first-hand knowledge of Al Maktoum family affairs. They have confirmed, both publicly and privately, that the engagement to Sheikha Sheikha did indeed take place.

I also saw the post by an annoymous poster on his forums...but the same members you claim have first-hand knowledge of the royal family's affairs also supported and believed all of these false wedding dates that were reported here again only based on heresay and rumor. Why is that??!

I'm not trying to be a 'party pooper,' but for her sake I hope the contract is signed sooner rather than later, because people around the globe who are independent and intelligent thinkers (not just following the herd) are beginning to wonder. Long engagements like this are not normal in the gulf, especially when the girl is already of marriagable age and they are in the same country, city, family, etc.

Also, I have checked with many various people, and this 'engagement' is not widely known by many people -even those who I know are close to al-maktoum family-outside of the internet realm and gossipy female circles of Dubai. I also agree that a newspaper announcement by the diwan or by the Crown Prince's Office is far more normal, more regal, and going according to precedent if they want to reach the maximum number of people. I find this discrepancy to be quite odd, and why not appear in public when his sisters are so 'out there' compared to other gulf royal ladies, in Abu Dhabi and other emirates in particular...even compared to their own mothers! Anyway, lets wish for the best for fazza3. He deserves it!

Agree ! It is very confusing to me some posts get deleted because they are labelled as "gossip" or "speculation", and other posts are from "reliable sources". Who are these reliable sources? I don't think anypne belonging to the inner circles of the Maks will post private info about them on the forums.
Anyway, it would be a good thing if an official announcement was made in case of an engagement. I wish Hamdan all the happiness in the world, but i'm getting tired of this lingering. If he wants to get married, why wait

No one in DXB who is near the power circles ever leaks information to the net, EVER! This *I* know as a cultural fact. You would be expelled otherwise like Bettina says.

I'm tired of the lingering also...I still doubt it is Sheikha, but lets hope that when and if Hamdan does find 'the One' that he does not linger and fights for it! We all want to see a happy ending.

We're all in the dark girlfriends...I don't know what to believe...SERIOUSLY...I've heard he's secretly married to some girl named Yasmin, no one knows the truth about that..Now he's engaged to his cousin? the marriage was suppost to be soon as we all know hasn't happened yet..Some say that he's engaged but the wedding date hasn't been set.... CONFUSING and CRAZY!!...And yes *Arabian Star said something important why isn't Sheikha Sheikha never seen in any events such as Horse Racing? (like sheikh Mo's daughters have? maybe she doesn't like horses? LOL or doesn't want to be seen by the public? ((((HELLO))) we're in 2010 get out of ur caves already!!! IMO he seems to be a free young guy who enjoys freedom...

Dates can be changed and the only wedding date that was mentioned was Jan 2010 but that got prospered. The April wedding was all a rumor and there was no credibility to that. It was just posted by a fan on the faza3 forums unlike the announcement that came official. Newspapers don't announce such events (engagements) since it is seen as a private thing, they also don't mention weddings before hand, the only info you will get is the pictures & articles in the next days paper. Things in the Gulf don't work like European houses which many don't realize.

About not seeing them in public, well it just doesn't happen. Sheikhs & Nasser have been seen "together" in public only after their marriage. Sheikha use to be seen in public before marriage and while engaged.

I wont be surprised. This could be a long engagement like many engaged couples who wait a few years. Maybe he is waiting for her to finish her studies or maybe because of the Sheikh Ahmed and Sheikh Mubarak (for respect) wedding will be propounded till the end of the year, that is the case in a few weddings in the Al Nahyan family.
But for them not marrying soon after they got engaged doesn't mean that they are not engaged.
