Princess Lalla Salma's role in Morocco and the Royal Family

Don't you think that Lalla Salma gained a little weight? I think it's because that she is a mother now.
Also, I read that Lalla Salma does not work anymore where she used to as a computer scientist.

Yes, at least she will take a position as her sisters in law do, she can't just stay in the house and sometimes appear in public, she will get borred because she is an outgoing person, she used to study and work!

i agree.
Not to see her on newspapers and gossips,doesn't meaning that she's spending her time on shopping,as we already saw doing some other royals B)
I believe that lalla salma is an intelligent woman who could help her people,but the protocol in morocco doesn't help her.
I believe that one's could make a difference through manipulating public opinion,by ovexposing to the medias,and one's who really works ,at least,real works don't need advertising

we have to remember it is very unusual to even see the first lady in public...this is new to morocco so she is the first princess (married to the king) to have some kind of public life..let's give her some room to make an impact on society and pave a way for women in morocco...

Coming back to her problems with her sisters-in-law, don't you think they want to learn her the "diplomatic language" and she disagrees...
Her sisters-in-law think she's not able to have activities but everywhere else, each new first Lady, each new princess have activities immediately after her husband's election or her wedding, whatever her age or background, even Mette-Marit or Mrs Bush. In Paris, everyone notice she was very relevant, so much more pertinent than others princesses, so she's not unable.
i understand she would be very upset her sisters-in-law are thinking she's the only not able in the world. It's just a girls' affair between sisters who have very closed relationship with their brother, who made arranged marriages and who had been forbidden to make studies at university by their father.
That's why it's rather a problem of diplomatic behaviour : in meetings, you have to shake your hands and to congratulate everybody, even if you are totally against this person.

I agree. There has really never been a public role for the wife of the King of Morocco. Therefore, Lalla Salma has to create her own role and that takes time.

Don’t you think that she should have gone, to comfort wounded of the earthquake of El Houceima? Or is it necessary also, to let him the time, to learn to be compassionate?
Mohamed VI tried to show to the international community that the situation of the Moroccan woman has evolve, I think therefore he would like to see his wife, more active because that would reinforce the picture of a modern morocco; therefore I don't think that it is the protocol that would stop Salma from acting; All depends solely on her

She's young and she has a small child to look after and care for. The sisters of the King have grown-up children from what I gather. Salma has her priorities straight. Better to be at home and see her son grow than galavanting around Morocco or the world trying to solve problems that seem always never to be resolved. Should she be going just to be seen, to prove a point? Who knows how she really spends her private time. There are people in this world who actually don't need the spotlight to do good deeds. She's lucky that as the wife of an important man she still has some privacy AND private time.

According to you, Salma is inactive because her sisters-in-law are jealous of her (salma made academic studies and not them, they made the arranged marriages and she a marriage of love (???))
these are only assumption, and me I have another one, perhaps, really salma is not made to be first lady of morocco, so as you say it, if she was perfected at the time of her displacement in France, she would have been more active since, it is maybe because she was not at the loftiness that she is invisible since
as for saying that salma is so honest that she refuses the diplomatic language, seriously if she was honest she would not accept to live in the luxury when the Moroccan people lives in misery

Where did you find out that Lalla Salma has problems with her sisters in-law? It does not mean that they have problems if they are not seen together in public, no one really knows what's going on in that royal family, and for Lalla Salma'appearance in public, I think that her husband and her know that she's new to the public world and needs time.
And queen rania when she was a princess I don't think that she was appearing that much as now in public.

P.Lalla Salma seems very discret person, she doesn't appear a lot like others queens of meadle-eastern and europe and for me this is a good thing

Salma is enough discreet, it is not need to compare her to the other queens but merely to her sisters-in-law who are a lot more implied in the associative life

Morocco is a country where unfortunately problems don't lack, brilliant woman as she, would find easily a domain where she could bring something; for the meantime she seems enough unobtrusive to me compared to her sister-in-law , maybe she need of more than time to find her place
