Congrats to both of them!

Also, Jordan or Tee can you translate what is says on the website?

What do we know about S.Sheikha bint Saeid? How old is she? Any photos? And when do they marry? I cannot imagine that they will have a long engagement...

There's nothing yet on the WAM or Gulf News websites about an engagement, nor does a Google search bring up anything.
It may be too early, or the news sites may be waiting for an official announcement.

Vis. the link to the forums posted by tee, from my limited Arabic, people seem to be leaving messages of congratulations. "Mabrouk" is the repeated phrase.

Thanks Jordan. Who is her father? Is he a Maktoum or a Nahyan?

I dont know if its true or not. Everyone got their story from that messageboard. It could be a lie. Its not even on the frontpage of hamdan's website.

And as someone said since Wam has not reported it, this could be one of the millions of rumors that, he is engaged. (Some are already saying its not true). I dont speak arabic too. Use google translate.

The Al Thani are the Ruling Family of Qatar.
This should read Sheikh Saeed bin Thani Al Maktoum who is a member of the extended Ruling Family of Dubai.

This is how the translated link correctly reads:
Quote:
Formal betrothal Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Sheikha Sheikha bint Saeed bin Thani Al Maktoum
However, there is nothing reported yet on
the WAM website
or Gulf News

Congratulations to Sheikha Hessa Bint Mohamed too,the eldest daughter of Sheikh Mo and Sheikha Hind, she will marry in 04/01/09 with the
nephew of her mother.

Her name is Sheikha? Wouldn't that be like a british princess named Princess Princess of Wales?

Given that theres a number of people named Earl, Lord or even king I think its a moot point..

Besides, Sheikh/a is mainly used as a title in the gulf, in other places its more similar to respectfull adresses like Don or perhaps Sir.
