i find it very strange how him and his sister get taken to formal dinners with heads of state or even perform royal engagements on their own. it's surely good to expose them, but what can little kids offers at such event apart from a smile and a handshake? it's almost demeaning towards the protagonist of the day to get congratulated by a child.

I think it's a cultural thing to involve the children that early. The ruling elite is pretty much a world of its own, there are lots of things the common man and woman doesn't know about them, there is no transparency compared to other royal houses.

I think under such circumstances and given the fact the M6 is not a mere figurehead but has the political power of a government, it's a good thing that his heir Moulay Hassan and Lalla Khadija are involved at such an early stage.

Carlota,from what I see,the little prince and princess do not take part in every state dinner.
They were present only at the dinner during the visit of King Juan Carlos.The also welcomed french president François Hollande and his companion.The royal family seems to have excellent relationships with the spanish royal family and with the different french presidents.For me,it looks more like a family gathering.
Former France first lady Mrs Chirac is a close friend of the family.She was even present at king's niece wedding.
Many french politicians have houses in Morroco.

Even if the king and his sibilings and children were introduced early in public life they don't risk being harrassed by the press
Given that they will remain public figures for the rest of their lives,it's better for them to be accustomed to frequent exposure to the press and public.
Last years,the king doesn't seem to be healthy,therfore it's better to have a well prepared heir.

Right you, soraya, noting that King Mohammed and Lalla Salma are focused on preparing Crown Prince Moulay Hassan to lifetime of being a public figure. He does an excellent job of carrying official engagements.

That was just an observation based on your post.

It is a not a pagan ritual. The Moroccan royal family are Muslims.
It's no different from American Christians praying for rain to end the drought in parts of the USA not long ago.
