does anyone know if there is any sort of official "coronation" for being named crown prince or does shk mo just issue a decree and he is crown prince?

i know coronation is the wrong word but it was the only word i could think of to describe what i meant.

I would say he doesn't have any interest in being anything in Dubai. His interests seem to be more towards building Zabeel Racing International into one of the top thoroughbred stables in the world.


Congrats to Sheikh Hamdan and Sheikh Maktoum!

oh!! I feel bad for sheikh Rashid, i hope it was his choice not to be the next ruler. Is he upset, is that the reason why we havent seen him out much lately. Those people who live in Dubai...do they know what is going on with Rashid.

I don't think that Rashid is upset.My favourite was Rashid because of his STRONG PERSONALITY,but he is just interested in sports.
For Hamdan he really did lots of things and being crown prince is his right.

You can see the news from these websites

Is sheikh rashid not responsible/or is he not interested in anything that is important..rashid is my favorite too...i cant imagine he's okay with it. If i got passed over for anything by my younger sisters i would hit the roof.

It also doesnt look good that he got passed over..it reminds me of Prince Mohammed of saudi arabia who got passed by his father king abdul azziz for his bad temper..

But then i could be worng and he would be okay with it

Rashid is responsible of course.
He is okay with it,why not?Being bigger doesn't mean that he will be.

The important is making good things for the country and Hamdan did really important things.
But for Rashid,he was just interested in sports.
My favourite was Rashid because of his STRONG PERSONALITY ,that Hamdan hasn't.
If Rashid did like Hamdan,Rashid named not Hamdan.

I can say that I am happy with Hamdan's named but,Rashid has really different personality and can do lots of things better,but unfortunately he didn't do.

and..I 'm sure that Hamdan will do very good things,but not strong personality like Rashid.

Lots of people in Dubai want to be Hamdan.(I think)

But we have to say that CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! in Arabic Mabrook Hamdan!

am happy for hamdan ofcorse...there is no surprise that he was named...it was just a matter of time.

I think its because rashid is my favourite that i feel bad for him....i hope it wasnt due to some shortcoming that he was passed over.

When i fantasize about a guy(like i do with rashid)i like to make sure he has good character. (just joking, please disregard the last sentence)
