1*Sheikh majid is Sheikh Mohammed and a moroccan Lady's son.
He's the chairman of Dubai culture and arts Authority for five years now if I'm not wrong.
He gratuated from The royal military academy Sandhurt in England.He is around 25 years old.

2* His personality : It was hard for me at the beginnning to understand what kind of person he is,because he is quite introverted
But as far as I know I would say that his major traits are : serious, workaholic,, but also bashful .

For the fact that he is half Emirati , someone here told me it wasn't a problem to the Emirati society (besides, from an external point of view,nothing leads to think he is moroccan too, he speaks khaleeji and not darija,the arabic dialects from Gulfe and North Africa)

I hope it helped you ;-)

You're welcome dear sun12 and I forgot to say : .

Yes he is very serious,but it's nothing compared to his brother Maktoum Maktoum NEVER smiles I have seen only one picture of him smiling.that's what make Sheikh Mohammed' children so interesting to understand : they are very different from one to the other.

His hobbies ?horse riding as the majority of al Maktoum children.

But for the rest, as I told you he is bashful so it's hard to answer you.


Maybe if you ask Emiratis here, they could better answer you?

Oh, I really had to laugh about your message because it is so true
Sheikh Maktoum really does not smile much in public,only at a wedding reception and in a picture where he is holding a little kid from his family I have noticed him slightly smiling-but not a bright,open smile-rather that type of subtle Mona Lisa-smile where you do not really know if he is smiling or just amused.
I guess that comes with being so intellectual and overly interested in work...I would really wish that he finds a way to balance his seriousness with some humour and smile a little bit more...itīs healthy

Also, I completely agree with your assessment that every of Sheikh Mohammeds kids is different-they all have a unique personality and different interests & hobbies!

Also from me welcome to the forum, sun12. Shaikh Majid has a very well-mannered personality with a balanced behavior. He has a very traditional setting, but at the same time he is very open-minded. His interests include culture, business and science. He also likes sports. As the others have said, he is a little reserved and shy. At the same time he is a very attentive listener who quickly realizes the most important thing. He is regarded as very intelligent.

Here you can hear his voice at minute 0:58. Unfortunately, the reporter talks a lot in between. Best heard from minute 2:06 to 2:38:

With us it is different than in european nobility families. In UAE the Crown Prince isnīt appointed by date of birth. It is also possible that the youngest son or a brother or cousin of the current ruler can be appointed crown prince. At the same time Crown Prince titling does not mean that this person will be the next ruler automatically. The CP may, but need not be the next ruler.

The compounds of the Emirati are close to each other as well as those to the ruling families. There is a great loyalty to the ruling families and there are some occasions for personal encounters. Shaikh Majidīs shyness can be interpreted as a sign of an excellent upbringing and balanced personality. He is a very pleasant, soothing person.

Why Sheikh Mohammed's children with a double origin never mention their mom country ?

Is it a shame not to be 100% from the UAE? or is it seen as disloyalty to say they also are Morocacn or Lebanese. because they are not more Emirati or more Lebanese/Moroccan.
They are 50% of each......

Why don't they highlight their different origin ?

No it is not a shame to be part emirate part other origin, but I think in the older kids the wives of shiekh Mohammed were not official wives, but we know wich kid is from wich wife the only thing is the names of the wives is not public. Also they don't carry another passport so they are only Emorate citizens

Good questions which can not be answered simply. The sons and daughters of Shaikhs are seen as Emirati, even if their mothers are non-Emirati. The origin of the father and his high social position are more crucial in this case. The origin of the mother plays no special role and is not shown separately in the rule. The closeness and loyalty of the young Shaikh's and Shaikhas for the Emirati culture, life and traditions are expected. This is also shown publicly by the young Shaikhs and Shaikhas from mixed parentage. Everything else would not presented to the public.

Normally there is no shame to have a mother who has a different origin. This is not unusual in the UAE. However, there are different views in society. Sometimes it is for a child (Shaikhs and Shaikhas constitute an exception) not easy to be only "half-Emirati". This is a large social point of discussion repeatedly.

In truth, we have a substantial number of Emiratis who have been born to mixed marriages (Emirati/non-Emirati). Some persons think, that Emiratis from mixed marriages may have "mixed loyalties" and can not be "proud Emirati" who want to work for our country, maintain our traditions and culture or want contribute to UAE society in a positive way and ultimately sacrifice their lifes for UAE. "To be exclusively Emirati" is still important for some persons in our society. Anything that exceeds this point is seen skeptical sometimes.This way of thinking is based on the fear of the loss of our national identity (traditions, culture, language), as we are only a small minority in our own country in comparison to the majority of the population.

Personally I think it would be insulting to question the loyalty of Emiratis who are born to a non-Emirati mother. In addition, of course, there are potential advantages also if one can be a proud Emirati who is supplemented by a "transnational identity". "To be Emirati" does not mean that you have to deny a half in itself if you are from a mixed marriage. You can keep both parts equally as wealth and personal treasure.

Interesting discussion about Majid. What about the first born, Rashid? What is he like? Isn't it true that a lot is expected of the eldest son? A few years back he was all over and now he has disappeared.
