HM King Mohammed VI sends message to crown prince of Abu Dhabi:


Abu Dhabi, May 30 - Cheikh Mohamed Ben Zayed Al Nahyane, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy-supreme chief of the royal armed forces of the United Arab Emirates, received this Monday a written message from HM King Mohammed VI.




The royal message was handed by Mohamed Rochdi Chraibi, envoy of the sovereign, reports the Emirates TV channel.

According to the source, the message "deals with brotherly relations between the two sister countries and fields of cooperation and means to develop them".

The TV also reports that the royal envoy conveyed during the audience the king’s greetings to the UAE president, Cheikh Khalifa Ben Zayed Al Nahyane, and best wishes of progress and prosperity to the people of the UAE.

The crown prince of Abu Dhabi also asked the Royal envoy to extend "greetings and esteem" to the Moroccan king and best wishes of progress and prosperity to the Moroccan people.



PS: i put this article in Dubai royals' thread since there's no thread about Abu Dhabi royals.

You're welcome. He's uncle to the ruler of Dubai. Dubai is one of the seven emirates that make up the UAE. Saudi Arabia and the UAE are two different countries that are ruled by different rulers and dynasties. Let me know if you don't understand. :)

Family Tree

As stated before Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum is the uncle of the current Ruler (Emir) of Dubai. Here is some detail of that relation.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum of Dubai (b1958), is the son of the late
Sheikh Saeed bin Maktoum al-Maktoum (b 1888, d Sept 1958). He was born the same year his father died.

Sheikh Ahmed's mother, Sheikha Fatima bint Ahmed bin Suliman is the second wife, whom his father married during his last years.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum was raised by his older half-brother
Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed al-Maktum, (b1912, d Oct 7 1990), is the father of the of Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum (B1946), the current Prime Minister of the UAE and the Ruler (emir not king) of Dubai.

Sheikh Ahmed's father is the grandfather to the current Ruler of Dubai, they were raised together by the current Ruler's father.

thanks a lot: I was falling sleep last night that's why i wrote SA instead of UAE. Needed more cuban coffe to wake up

And so he was born the same year his father died, how sad. Is his mother still alive, she should have been very young when she was having kids and probably his father was older.
there is a good seed in the pretty genes of the guys that were born in the 1958 since he is very elegant and also Prince Al of Monaco was born in 1958.

thanks a lot.

Yes, Sheikh Ahmed's mother, Fatima, is still alive. I agree, he is a very elegant man, those are some very good genes.

No, Sheikh Maktoum the ruler of Dubai married a young Iranian, I don't know if they are still married because he now has a new young "thing" on his arm.

Sheikha Latifa bint Hamdan Al Nahyan question

Hello

I am doing some research for a story on the Maktoum brothers for a racing publication and am hoping someone can help me please (I have looked everywhere for a family tree but can't find one!).

Is it correct that Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum was so madly in love with Sheikha Latifa bint Hamdan Al Nahyan that he only ever had her as a wife - no others?

So all four of the brothers, Maktoum, Hamdan, Mohammed and Ahmed are full brothers?

I assume this is quite rare, well both would be rare, first one wife only and second all siblings being full siblings, no half siblings?

Also, if that is the case, how many daughters did they have please?

And, if anyone has any tips about protocol and how to describe the brothers I would appreciate it, ie. is it okay to call them the Maktoum brothers?

By the way, this site is amazing and I really do think I'm hooked! I will be visiting lots I think!

Thanks!
