Hamdan was in Qatar for the Purebred Arabian Camel Festival Final. Don't know if he won a race or just had the prettiest camel. The event was held on 20-04.

My grandmother would always say, "Never make faces because they might freeze and you will be that way for the rest of your life." Here's a sincere prayer that this was only a temporary condition.

I see what you mean. He doesn't stand upright, he looks small and skinny next to the others, he doesn't laugh and his eyes are bewildered. This guy needs to take some rest. Wonder if he will be in Newmarket this weekend. I would strongly advice him not to do so, but to be lazy instead.

He looks plain unhealthy. He needs to start taking better care of himself. Is this kind of talk allowed?

I don't think Hamdan looks horrible, but tired I guess he has been under big pressure since he was appointed as Crown Prince, I hope he's OK

Personally I think that he looks absolutely OK. I don't see any sign of "unhealthiness" and tiredness. More than that I think he looks happy in those pics. Maybe just the second and third pics looks strange because he looks from under brows..

and so new pics (for those who think that Sheikh Hamdan looks bad nowadays)
1 2 3 4
I'm not sure about the first one. it could be taken some time ago. But the last three are new, taken on the 2nd of May.

...Is there any proof that these were taken on the 2nd May?

Almost certainly just UPLOADED 2nd May but taken years ago. These are all very old pictures. Even the camera used, a Nikon D100, is more than 7years old...

No one puts on that amount of weight in the span of 24 hours.

It's a perfectly legitimate & normal thing to speculate on the unhealthy appearence of someone who is to take on the mantle of Ruling Dubai & thus his qualification or ability to do so. Is anyone going to tell me that public & media speculation would not be robust indeed, if he were the Deputy Leader, Ruler, Prime minister of The UK or future President of the USA or for that, any mature progressive state, or if he were a Crown Prince of any of the European Nations, Prince Charles or Prince William etc?

Hamdan looks seriously ill.

What is very telling is that there is not the existence a sophisticated mindset in the Government of Dubai, that realises that, people are noticing... Potential foreign investors in the country are noticing this & that it may have consequences for Dubai...

This is total speculation on my part....totally unfounded. But....I think that Hamdan has a ton of things on his plate and he's finding himself not able to keep up with things. So I think he's taking something to help him go a little further and that stuff that he's taking....is making him more frail/unhealthy then he realizes. ??? Like I said, just total speculation on my part but I've seen it happen here in the States with our Congressmen. Just a thought. It COULD happen. I don't know Hamdan but it seems like it's a HUGE possibility.

...And maybe there is... It's not possible to point out to you or discuss with you in as an articulately manner here, as it would freely & openly be, on the blogs, forums, comments sections of the press in all the Western Press &Media platforms, about why I think it is serious & I think very serious, because here the discussion will be cencored.

Ah, we all know it deep inside our minds we think it, but why don't we want to believe what we think is the reason.
