not another royal death in the ME...first Dubai, then Bahrain, and now Kuwait.
I just saw a news report on tv about the Emir's death.
It was also mentioned that the crown prince is ailing himself.

I had hoped 2006 would be a happier year than 2005, that just doesn't seem to be the case!

Just wondering, but does anyone know if a full list of the World Economic Forum's "Young Leader's" will be published? I keep hearing of new nominations everyday but would prefer to see the full list.

Wow! Potentially that could be a really big event! I don't know much about Thai Royalty but if they're anything like the Brunei Royal Family it will be very ostentatious!

I dont think anybody's as ostentatious as the Brunei royals!
But yes, if all the 29 monarchs do attend the celebrations, this could prove to be THE royal event of the year. Im sure all the Asian royals will be there, including the Bruneians, Malaysians.
Most of the Arab royals seem to have been invited as well. I think it'd be great if both KA and QR attended the event, rather than just sending their representatives.
