The Prince is relatively old for his first marriage. He is already 44 years old... Congratulations to the Prince, Miss Oum Keltoum Boufares and both families.

The couple are cousins ... Umm Kulthum's father, Moulay Mamoun Boufars is a son of lalla khadija, sister of the late king Mohammed V.

What a nice surprise! Congratulations.

I know there is 2 ceremonies right? sadaq and zafaf. I hope our Moroccan members can explain the details about this ceremonies. I think that foto is from their wedding sadaq. Zafaf is the wedding where the bride wears a nice white gown (caftan) and tiara, at least is what happened to Lalla Salma and The King.

Ms Umm looks lovely. Is it a tradition to wear a green caftan for an engagement party?

When hearing the name Umm Kulthum, I automatically think about the singer with the same name (1898-1975), whom was/is regarded as the greatest female Arabic singer in history. Maybe fiance was named after her.

Perhaps after the couple's wedding.
According to Moroccon websites Umm kulthoum is 27 years old (b. 1987).She was born in Marrakech where she attended Frensh schools & completed her education in France.

this is the marriage the so called "Moroccan Adul" not the Engagement! Normally after the official act of marriage her title is Her Royal Highness Princess Lalla Umm Kulthoum Boufares, but the MAP did not write it ........a mistake of the protocol I assume...by the way, His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid celebrates his 44th brithday on Friday, 20th of June 2014...
May God bless him as his wife!

Still i think they will celebrate this marriage (Zifaf).This ceremony is similar to "Nikah" in the ME Arab countries.They are legaly married (tied the knot or signed marriage contracts) but with no wedding celebrations.Lalla Soukaina did the same.

Thank you for these explanations . I hope that they will publish pictures of the second ceremony as well, the Morrocan brides are quite stunning will all their finary and jewellery.

Another question: Is it traditional for the bride to wear a green kaftan for the sadaq wedding? Is there a special symbolism behind the colour?
And do they start living together after the first, or after the second ceremony?
