Thks for the article but the article is in greek and I don't speak greek so I could not understand anythin the article said, but I would NOT be surprised if maryam and her sisters didn't accept Cristiana because if you look at the Ladies Endurance that Cristiana took part in you will see pics of her and her mother in a separate bench , or when she's w/ her dad. The only person I saw in a pic hugging her and bein nice to her was Hamdan. We know that all the maktoum (Hind's girls) were there at that Event so....IMO Arabs can be VERY discrimative so I feel bad for Cristiana.

sheikha mo's first wife (sheikha maitha's mom) was not a sheikha remember so lets gets over this whole thing bout his first wife HAVING to be a sheikha...the sheikha (whomever sheikh hamdan decides to marry) will just be his "official" wife like sheikha hind is to sheikh mo...

jus curious...so now we know as 'fact' that their is no engagement between sheikh hamdan n sheikha sheikha?

Hi Faith_g - this site appears unreliable for several reasons...first she speaks of her father in the third person...I believe they (Sh. Mo) purport his children as being highly educated...that is incorrect english or writing. Next, the posting 174 states Sheika is 17, she 18 turning 19 in January. This post appearently was recently written considering post 176 has a recent picture of her and her daughter. Lastly, doesn't Mo's first wife has three children: Marwan, Maitha and Shamma ?(the runaway Sheika), so how can Manal be related to them?

This is just my observation of the inaccuracies....

The girl who write this is not Maryam but a close friend of her as she says
Maryam doesnt write on this FaceBook Official Page
Thats all what i Know

& Maitha is full sister of Shamsa & Majid not Marwan as far as im concerned

Sheikh Rashid is not engaged, well at least there has been nothing mentioned. There were rumors a while back but they turned out to be false.

I remember coming across them as well but to my understanding they were just rumors from unreliable sources.
Its best to wait for confirmation from a reliable source or an announcment. Other than that, I dont believe nor give attention to other sources.

Question What is with all the lion and tiger cubs?

Can anyone tell me how the Al Maktoum children started having lion and tiger cubs as playmates? In some pictures some of those cats are getting pretty big. Is there a plan whereby at a certain age the cats only live in a good habitat and don't mix with humans? I do hope so. There have been far too many stories of people who raised large cats from tiny ending up being savaged by them, or someone else getting hurt. That very funny video of Hamdan and a group of young men taking an evident non-rider on a little ride also shows Hamdan with a larger cat, Hamdan evidently asking everyone to gather around for a photo op - but that cat twitches one whisker and - boom - nobody but Hamdan and the cat in the photo. Obviously, not everyone is convinced that the lion is really the kind of animal that makes a great pet.

I know Hamdan has been photographed kissing animals/birds which most human beings wouldn't come within 15 feet of, and said creatures looking most happy and content. But still. . .
