thanks for the picture!

remember whn you were finally old enough to sit at the "grownup table" at family events? i suppose that is a bit how hamdan and maktoum feel.

[quote=kingcat;724799]Hello everybody,
I must admit that i'm totally shocked that Sheikh Rashid has been passed fot the position of the Crown prince. I believe that there must have been problems because it is not common that the eldest son doesn't get the position of his father (especially in the orient)
I think because Rashid has a strong character he is not fine with what has happened. He loves his brother. You can see that in many pictures. But lately there were not as many pictures with both.
i really hope that this has not a deep impact of their relationship.
By the way: Has rashid also an official position in the government of dubai?
couldn't hamdan and rashid have been named? Why Maktoum, he is 3 years younger than rashid?

I was so glad to read "He vowed to be loyal and faithful to Allah" in the story from GulfNews about Sheikh Khalifa recieving Sheikh Hamdan as Crown Prince. So sweet! If his intentions are correct, I ask Allah s.w.t. to bless him and make him a successful ruler

How many times does it have to be said? Rashid has no desire to hold these types of positions. His interests lie elsewhere.

With regard to your statement that it's almost always the eldest son who follows in the footsteps of his father, that is not a true statement anymore.

That isn't true in Abu Dhabi with Sheikh Mohammed being the CP versus a son of Sheikh Kalifa. In fact, Sheikh Zayed put this in place before his death by naming Sheikh Mohammed a Deputy CP while Sheikh Kalifa was still CP.

It isn't true in Dubai where Sheikh Mohammed is now the Ruler versus the eldest son of Sheikh Maktoum.

It isn't true in Sharjah where Sheikh Sultan has chosen the younger brother of his wife to be CP.

It isn't true in Ras al Khaimah either. Nor is it true in Qatar. And I don't believe it is true in Kuwait either.

I could imagine that Rashid will become closely involved with the horseracing operations, eg Goldophin, since he has been around such events much more often than his brothers.

Hey,
Does anyone one why sheikh rashid was not by his brother's side in such an important day in his life. I know it must be hard for rashid but at the end of the day he is his brother and that is far more important than any other position in the world. I don't know that's how I feel. We hope to see sheikh rashid soon because he just disappeared for a few months now.

Excuse me, but this is a little bit hard said. Of course he did things to deserve it. Each of them did it his way. Maybe Rashid wasn't that intersted in being CP, but now it seems like he wanted it nevertheless (because he is not seen now at the official introduction of hamdan)
I personally think that this is going on quite a while ,their realtionship has changed, sadly :(
At least I hope they both work it out so that they can be again close like before.

anytime a family has troubles it is sad. all those boys vying for their father's approval was bound to bring out problems. we are only aware of the boys bc of the publicity around them but can you imagine the drama the girls go thru. in my experience girls can be much more dramatic, jealous and competitive.(especially sisters) with all those girls, some from different mothers, i can only imagine! CATFIGHT!!!!!
