Actually from a popular commercial area in the capital, you can see the new extension of the palace for the Crown Prince and his wife. I don't think it is a 4 or 5 bedroom apartment, but maybe 4 or 5 floors! Looks more like a lavish hotel.

The Palace is Massive in size. If i'm not mistaken there is 3 or 4 floors of underground basement parking lots. and another 5 stories above this. His Majesty is really generous in inviting High-end officials and their children (above the age of 13) and also distant relatives of the Royal Bloodline (ie. Pengirans; these are the very distant relatives from great great great grandfathers which they share with the Sultan). So therefore these basement levels are reserved for official dignitaries vehicles (+police escourt vehicles) and other royalty vehicles. So we are assigned to park at the base of the Palace Hill and catch a coach that drives us up to the "Unofficial Entryways" (the back doors; this is far from the OFFICIAL Entryways but closer to the function area).
Yes the parking space for visitors alone is huge. But His Majesty's private garage is MASSIVE. I think the size is about half of the length of the main palace building alone. Seriously, there are at least a thousand cars parked there. There are buggies to take you from one of the garage entrances to where ever your car is. I've got pictures here but sorry, can't post it up.

how to address each one of them according to their rank?
i think every royal household has different customs...no?
i hope that somebody can help me with this.
Actually there is, a 774-pages book called The Royal Brunei Customs and Protocol, or in Malay "Adat Istiadat DiRaja Brunei". You can buy it at the State Customs and Protocal Department. Tells every single thing you want to know about customs and protocol of Brunei.

At the moment yes. But currently the Sultan is building a $55 million "palace", up the hills right in front of Istana Nurul Iman.
