I have a question, are the grand children of HH Sheikh Sultan of Sharjah, considered princes, and do they get the HH or HE title? I know in some emirates the grand children don't get the princely title

In UAE we do not have princes or princesses....All members of ruling families considered Sheikh (male) or Sheikha (female). They can also be addressed with HH suffix which is most often used for a Sheikh/Sheikha who has public or special duties. The HE title can also get someone who is not a member of a ruling family but a senior official, like a high government person or an ambassador of UAE. The only exception: Princess Haya (wife of Sheikh Mohammed al Maktoum) retained her title as a princess because her title is higher (royal) than that of a Sheikha (non-royal).

Hi all,

Now and again, I hear about tribal elders who were/are influential in decision making for UAE rulers and their families, even selecting who the rulers will be. Some questions:
Who are these tribal elders for the Maktoum family? Are they all male?

Secondly, if they do continue to have influence, what sorts of things do they decide? Do they have the ability to make decisions about marriage, divorce, travel and educational opportunities, or career choices? Do they impact the opportunities that can be taken by women in the family? Do they decide who will be visible to the public or not?

It has long been regional tradition for rulers to hold open discussions with their people, be they common, merchants or the elite. Often, this forum is held by the emirate rulers as well as senior family members. This open majlis, or consultation, is held periodically; however, a ruler may also appoint another Shaikh or wali, to whom concerns may be directed by the general population when necessary. This individual is often considered a leading tribal figure whose trust is placed by his tribe as well as the ruler. Decisions made by rulers on the basis of consensual consultation with the elders and ruling members of the leading families and respected (senior) representatives of the tribes.This is an old tribal principle of what is now complemented by the addition of modern government standards, like Federal Supreme Council which is the highest legislative and executive body in the country formed by all rulers of the seven Emirates. The UAE also have a half-elected Federal National Council which consists of 40 members drawn from all the emirates. Half are appointed by the rulers of the constituent emirates, and the other half are indirectly elected to serve two-year terms. The FNC is restricted to a largely consultative role.

Decisions that affect the privacy of members of a (ruling) family (marriage, divorce, travel, education and so on) are made only within the family. For private decisions the opinion of the elders of the family is respected and valued. The female members of the (ruling) families decide independently to what extent they want to be visible in public. The deciding factors are often personal preference and own attitude to traditional values.
