I know that a particular caste exist in morocco “the chorfas” coming down from the prophet (or saying that) and that are considered like being over of the common of the mortals

I find it absurd, the prophet Mohamed always lived modestly and never benefited from privileges, the one that has follow him was not his family's member, if the prophet wanted that his family detains the power he would have designer one of his parents, instead of it he designated the most competent man

The MRF reigns while using the love of the Moroccan for the Islam and her prophet and as I said it, I find this bad

May be ancient kings used the "chorafas" status to attract supporters or establish authority as you put it, but in current context it doesn't mean anything.

Morocco has at least five diffrent branches of great grandchildren of the prophet ( alawis, idrissids, sulaymanis, etc). If being a decendent of the prophet was all what it takes to become king, then we will be having a civil war now. Because all of them would be fighting for power now.

all dynasties that govern Morocco took advantage of their relationship with the prophet, and the Alaouit don't make exception, but what is serious that is this family continues to used that nowadays
it is not only at medieval time that the MRF used its relationship with the prophet, but until our day it makes that, the commentaries of the Moroccan television are eloquent, in their commentary she puts the relationship of the MRF forward with the prophet, I heard it notably at the time of the feast of the throne and at the time of the religious feast celebration
these are sentences of praise without end on the king and his cherifian family , descendant of the prophet


I heard it of my own ears, and everybody knows that the Moroccan television repeat only orders of the power

What you hear on TV are just official titles of the king and his family. Titles they inherited and that are part of tradition. And if you are that "informed" about moroccan TV , you should already know that their "speakers" are known for not being very creative and for using the same sentances and formulas over and over again :).

I don’t agree with you Layla 27:) , I think that all these sentences used with intention
in totalitarian system as the Moroccan one, the TV is a tool of propaganda used by the power to carry the picture that it wants to give of itself
Moroccan journalists don't have any latitude to speak freely of their king or their royal family

PS: I am not a specialist of Moroccan TV, but I like to watch at the news of foreign channels :)

This little boy is a DOLL! He is so cute!
I saw his picture on the Royal Children post and had to look him up! He gets my vote as the cutest little one of them all!
How old is he? He is his father's heir, right?
Does anyone know of any English books about his parents and him? I know very little about this Royal Family, except that I love his mother's red hair but would like to know more.

Thanks for your info!

Hi Florecita. moulay Hassan is only two years old. But he will probably start attending school in two years like his father and uncles did. In a school calles "le college royal" (which means royal school), in the capital rabat, with his cousins, and many young boys selected all over morroco to study with him.

It would be nice if Moulay Hassan can attend normal school like Nikolai in Denmark is and William and Harry in England have...so he can be around ordinary people...although given his mother's background perhaps she will expose him to life outside the royal circle anyway

Actually the royal school is based on the fact that the little princes and princesses are surounded by ordinary people. I said that many young pupils, from all social backgrounds were selected all over the country to attend that school. The majority of king mohamed's friends are former schoolmates. Same thing for prince moulay rachid.
