Yes it's true, at the most. Why would this be surprizing? Some rational thought here. Although he is well on the short side compared with say, Northern European males, it is about average for a Gulf Arab male. Why would he be expected to be tall? Would it be surprizing to learn for example that Italian, Spanish, Greek & Turkish or Chinese & Japanese men, to (on the whole), have average height well on the short side? Hamdan or Rashid are NOT particularly short among their peers. They are the same height as Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoun Al Nahyan, Sheikh Ahmed Bin Zayed is shorter, Sheikh Hazza Bin Zayed only an inch taller, both Sheikh Khaled Bin Sultan Bin Zayed & Sheikh Hazza Bin Sultan Bin Zayed are shorter, Sheikh Nasser Bin Zayed was about the same height, Sheikh Hamed Bin Zayed about the same, Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed also and Sheikh Zayed, he was short... but not compared to most of his peers!
Welcome to the forum Yami.

That's for sure . Sheikh Abdullah Bin Hamed Al Khalifa ( the almost never seen 2nd oldest son of the King of Bahrain) is another unusually tall one. About 6ft

Smile hi

Hi everyone!!!
i was reading some news and it seams that Sheikh Hamdan or his investment group were trying to buy a english football team and thats makes me wonder: Is being the crown prince means that Sheikh Hamdan is going to get more money from his family? and is Sheikh hamdan self supporting?
here is the link anyway Football: Dubai group pulls out of deal to buy Charlton | Football | The Guardian

Zabeel is fund setup by the ruling Sheik of Dubai to invest Sheik Hamdans money yes.
Like most royal families the Maktoums give their family members money in some way. How much differs of course depending on who it is and what responsabilities they got.
As a crown prince Sheik Hamdan will be generously treated by his father no doubt, right now his personal fortune is estimated to be somewhere between $2-5 billions but he´s still young and I expect him to quietly amass a respectable fortune in time.

How do you know Sheikh Mohammed set up the company for him? Maybe he did it himself.

Anyways nobody really knows who owns Zabeel. The chairman has refused to name any of its investor or investors, saying it is a private investment fund. And the specualtion that hamdan might be the owner came form a foreign newspaper. I will really like to know who owns it. Even though I think its Hamdan

Ah, but it was not any newspaper..it was the Financial Times who are very well connected to the Maktoum family so in this case I´m inclined to believe that they are right.
As for Sheik Mohammed setting up the company it was used to front a bid by him for control of Liverpool FC together with DIC just months after being formed so I think we can assume that he set up the company himself, and at this time Sheikh Hamdan was not crown prince so there was no real reason to involve him at that time.

And the beauty of these proposed football deals are that football associations don´t accept anonymous trust arrangements so the real would be owner(s) have to step forward.
Like how Sheik Mansour bin Zayed Al-Nahyan eventually was revealed to be the new owner of Manchester City FC despite Dr Al-Fahim refusing to name any links to the Abu Dhabi Royal house when he brokered the deal.

Yes, I know it was the FT that revealed that it was Hamdan. I dont know about FT's connection to the Makotum family. FT did say it got its information from DIFX website (where Zabeel's office is) It named the chairman and Hamdan as owners when the comapny first sarted, but it later removed Hamdan's name a few weeks later.

Was Zabeel not formed before the first bid for liverpool? And before Zabeel linked up with DIC for Liverpool, it tried going for Manchester United.

I think everyone knew Mansour owned the company before it bought Manchester City.

I dont know if Zabeel has to named it real investors publicly (it can do that privately and list Mohammed Ali Al Hashimi as its owner that whats happened to Portsmouth FC), since the whole company has been but in the trust of its chairman Mohammed Ali Al Hashimi,

I fear that this thread is getting a bit out of shape and for that I apologise to everyone..

But to get back to the post, Zabeel was formed in Fenruary 2006 and was involved in the Liverpool negations together with DIC the same autumn.
As for looking at Man United that smells like an idea by the former crown prince and Manchester United fan HH Sheikh Rashid Bin Mohammed but might just be the press making stories up as usual..The British tabloids in general are terrible.
ADUG that bought Man City was formed just days before the bid so I doubt that many had an idea about the owner, especially as it was registered as a daughter company of ADIA at the time, Sheik Mansour are on ADIAs board we might add.

The trust arrangements that are so common in the gulf are as I mentioned earlier not accepted by the football leagues, anyone buying a club have to own up their identity which is why I follow all such deals with a lot of interest.
As I remember it there was an investigation by the EPL to make sure that the Portsmouth owner not was a trustee recently?

Hi! muslim boys dont date its not alowed in their religion, Sheikh Hamdan doesnt date, or have any girlfriend. thats is whats is should be, anything far from this is pure especulation and gossip.

Take care!!!

In public at least...many from the region enjoy a cosmopolitan lifestyle not very different from other rich and famous people of course.

As for Sheikh Hamdan he´s a devout sportsman, crown prince etc so I doubt that he can find much time to enjoy himself, in particular in the midst of the global financial turmoil we have seen the last month.

Dubai as such lacks the wealth that Oil brings Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Saudi, so the Maktoums have invested heavily partly using borrowed money to make Dubai the economic hub of the region in a trading and financial sense instead.
So any global financial worries will affect Dubai even if they can most probably rely on the fabuosly rich Al-Nahyans to bail them out if things gets ugly given the importance of Dubai to the whole UAE.
