Al Hameli, is Crown Prince Mohammed of Abu Dhabi a son of Sheikha Fatima or is he from another of Sheikh Zayed's(god rest his soul) wives? I know that Sheikh Khalifa and Sheikh Sultan are from his wife from the Al Mazroui tribe.
Do any of the Al Nahyans have western wives? I know that nationals are being encouraged to marry fellow nationals so I was wondering if the royals follow the same advice. :)
Palomar Your information about sheikh Mohamed is true he is the son of Sheikh Fatima, But sheikh Khalifas mother is Al Nahayan She is Sheikh Hissa Mohamed, Daughter of sheikh Zayed (may god rest his soul) cousin. She is the only Wife of sheikh Zayed that is from the royal Family, Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed is from a different mother, his Mother is from the Mashgooni family which is a part of Al Mazroui, our shaikhz are encouraged to marry locals, and specially high-class families. Any other marriages from lower class families and foreigners are kept secrets if they occur, that is so they become role models for the locals
