poor girl... he is so old and she is so preetty and young... :(

do you think she'll dress as rania? or is dubai a more conservative country than jordan? maybe she will have to wear her burka always...
Just wanted to make a little correction if you dont mind.
The dress Haya's wearing is not called a burka.
As far as im concerned, it may not be what Rania wears but its still just as pretty.

she has a emerald tiara (it's imo not very good looking) and a necklace that converts to a tiara (diamond). It's not quite as impressive as Haya's, but it's not bad.
I suppose that Rania could borrow from someone else. Do any of Abdullah's sisters have tiaras? She may have to borrow from them. I definitely don't see Haya's tiara traveling between Jordan, Dubai and wherever else it may go for official functions.

Ewww.. Why did she marry him? I guess like someone said before, she is searching for a father figure and he is old enough to be her father. Poor Girl:(

Well, they have things in common, love of horses, both are royal.
They also seem to enjoy each other's company. Why not marry?

I think that's enough talk about their sex life.

Hi everyone.

Here is an interesting article from The IHT that some of you may find to be interesting. I thought that I would post it here due to Princess Haya's marriage to Sheikh Mohammed.

But it has nothing to do with either him or her except that Dubai has made more money from tourism than oil... if you're going to post articles, at least make sure they are relevant to the topic.

I am an Administrator on this board, therefore I do not need for anyone to tell me what to post.

The article was posted in this thread because of the mention of women in Dubai and the variation of their style and demeanor within was is said to be a very conservative Muslim nation. Being that part of the discussion about Haya's marriage involved questions about her dress and whether or not she will wear traditional or Western clothing it was posted here as a point of interest. It was also posted as a point of information about Dubai which is the country to be Haya's new home. An article need not mention Haya or Sheikh Mohammed directly to be completely relevant. It may be relevant or of interest simply for its background information. This article contains information and facts about Dubai, a monarchy, thus royalty related. Dubai is also the country that has a Crown Prince whom has just married a Princess of Jordan. Both individuals are discussed in this thread.

If you or anyone else is not interesed feel free to disregard the post. However, there is to be no scolding here of anyone. It is for the Administrators and the Moderators of LTR to decide what posts are to be removed and considered to be off topic or deemed to be relevant.

Scolding or just making an observation? There is a difference.

:flower: Just curious, has it actually been made public as to where Haya will live full time -- ie Dubai, Jordan, or Europe? I guess place of residency would would have been stipulated in the marriage contract.

Thanks,

Sean

Let's be clear here. This is not going to become a discussion. I have made my point and a statement has been issued concerning the article and its relation to this thread. If this thread becomes a discussion about the two previous posts, it will be closed as this is definitely off topic and no longer has anything to do with Princess Haya and Sheikh Mohammed.

Team Members reserve the right to clarify any post or statement questioning the judgements of posters and that of LTR Mods, and Admins. Now, that it has been done, I suggest that all posters move on immediately.

This thread will continue to discuss, Princess Haya, Sheikh Mohammed, members of the Royal Families of Jordan and Dubai as they relate to the the Princess and the Sheikh, information pertaining to those individuals, their respective countries and so on. Any other discussion may be done so privately.

No other posts of this nature will be made. If the ability to continue to discuss the intended topic is no longer possible, this thread will be closed.

If there are any other statments or questions, please forward them to Team Members privately.

I haven't heard anything. It isn't clear as of yet. I think that Haya has spent a vast majority of her time in Europe with the riding circuit. She has a great passion for horses and sport, so I find it hard to believe that she will give up this interest. However, I am not certain as to how Haya will incorporate this interest into her marriage and if avid travel will be possible.

Being that Haya is not a first wife, she may have more opportunity to pursue her own interests. Also, Dubai is also known for several sporting events pertaining to equestrianism. Perhaps Haya will devote her kowledge to events in Dubai. If she channels her passion and focus into events in Dubai, she may spend more time there. Either way, I think that Dubai will most likely become her main home.

Are there any more recent news about the couple? JRF seems to make the headlines of european magazines quite often but I can't remember ever finding anything about Dubai's.
I'm just wondering because I've been searching the news online but there seems to be nothing more after the wedding announcement.

Cheers

Of course, P. Haya and SM have discussed that residency issue before they get married. I also think that Dubai is the most probable new home of P.Haya.

Maybe we could see Haya as the "Rania' or 'Noor' of Dubai in the days to come

Well, these things are never written in stone, particularly since she is the second wife. She may very well live in Europe (as she has) or even Jordan for most of the year. Usually the marriage contract would specifiy place of residence etc. I was just wondering if anyone knew for sure.

Thanks,

Sean

Just to clarify that Dubai is not a country but one of the 7 emirates in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The UAE is a federation of 7 emirates each with its own independent government relating to internal issues only, and abides by the Federal Law of Abu Dhabi (the capital of the UAE) pertaining to issues of external and bigger internal issues.

The ruler of the emirate of Dubai is Sheikh Maktoum, and the crown prince is his brother: Sheikh Mohammed (Princess Haya's husband).

The ruler of the emirate of Abu Dhabi is Sheikh Zayed, and the crown prince is his son: Sheikh Khalifa.

The President of UAE is Sheikh Zayed of Abu Dhabi, and the Vice President is Sheikh Maktoum of Dubai.

On the hierachy of the UAE government versus Dubai Government, Sheikh Mohammed is the Minister of Defence of the UAE, and the Crown Prince of Dubai.

I suppose this is a look back at how and why royal marriages used to be arranged in Europe. The main driving force was the benefits for the countries involved, the individuals were a secondary concern.
