I strongly suspect their engagement story has also been picked up from this thread. We appear to be the best source of Ruling Family news on the internet.

Still nothing on the WAM or Gulf News websites.

The (small) picture was said to have come from Sheikh Rashid's website: www.sh-rashid.net
I've had a quick look but couldn't see it among the hundreds of photos of Rashid playing soccer; unfortunately there is no English language version of Rashid's site.
• Keep in mind that Sheikhs Hamdan and Rashid have a sister named Sheikha Sheikha so the chances of mistaken identity are increased.

I think its just the engagement.

They might not get married for years.

Someone on Hamdan's website said she is 18 and was born 1990.
(I dont know how true, the story is).

The 27th of December is the Men's lunch wedding ceremony of Shaikha Hessa bint Mohammed bin Rashed Al Maktoums and not Sheikh Hamdans engagement ceremony as mentioned earlier. However the local Arabic radio stations and newspapers have been posting congragulating announcements from individuals and various companies in regard to Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammeds engagement.

*Deeply sorry for the previous misinformation

I think we will see articles from WAM , but like we all know Dubai Royals are different from European Royals. It's really hard to see marriages & engagements in media.

Between I think we can't see Sheikha's pic in media.She will be like Sheikha Hind.(First Lady of Dubai & Mother of S.Hamdan)

Wise words ! Nobody knows. We just have to wait and see (and keep our fingers crossed).

A link was posted to Sheikh Rashid's website and what was stated to be a picture of Sheikha Sheikha bint Saeed.
However, that part of the website is password-protected which means members cannot gain access to see the picture.

Rather than continuing with a succession of posts repeating what has already been said, I have removed the first post and all the "link doesn't work" posts.

ETA.. Please don't make posts stating "I want to see pictures of the bride".
If there are any pictures available, they will be presented here. If there are none, there will be nothing to see.

Thanks!
