Lovely pictures. So nice to see Sheikha Mozah. I don't believe she attended the UN General Assembly this year?

Here is an interesting article on Sheikha Mozah after the abdication.
We can't read this article, you have to have a subscription. What is the summary of the text?

Well,to me it is similar to being the wife of a king and later the mother of the new king,to me it does not sound that unusual... In Jordan,Morocco,Oman etc. you can see the same thing - the wife of the monarch (wheter he is called King,Emir or anything else) usually gives birth to the next Emir/King...

In 1976 Sultan Qaboos bin Saeed al Said married his cousin, Nawwal bint Tariq ibn Taymur. As far as I know the marriage ended shortly in divorce and the Sultan has been unmarried ever since. The divorced couple have no children.

I have read the same,for some reason the marriage of the Sultan from Oman was not very long-lasting-one can only wonder why it ended or why he did not marry again, but this is not the topic of this thread ;-)
I just wanted to give it as example because Sultan Qaboos bin Saeed al Said`s mother was the second wife of the Sultan (Said ibn Taimur) and now her son has inherited the title from his father.

Thanks for explaining. It is always useful to have additional details to learn and be more precise.
