All I know from word of mouth, Princess Azemah is currently dating Princess Umi Kalthum's son, whom is her first cousin. Not that I heard about her being promised with Prince Qawi, but I dont think that gossip can be trusted.

Anyway, I'm hoping for the best for Princess Azemah, cos I'm absolutely a no 1 fan. She's so adorable & nice. God Bless Ya

Said to read that. Not for her finding a partner/love but for the love to be a cousin...this is not healthy for them at all! Inter-blood marriage is not a good thing for the children and certainly NOT improve the Royal Family's IQ...Anyway I really doubted she would be brave enough to defy the "system". She is destined to marry some local guy and live in Brunei like her siblings and grow old like her aunties...

Would you know if HRH Princess Fadzilah is also "seeing" someone? She is so beautiful and also looks very sharp/bright!

Wow..Princess Azemah is dating with Princess Umi Kalthum's son..But which one? I personally think that the third and the fourth son are quite good looking.

Well I haven't heard that Prince Azim dropped out of Sandhurst, I guess he can't stand the strict rules in there seeing that he's always living in the fab lane.But anyways, no, Prince Azim is not the second in line to the throne but he's actually the 4th behind the Crown Prince and his son, Prince Abdul Muntaqim, and Prince Abdul Malik.

Hopefully, that would clear things up.

That would be very interesting to see if they finally decided to tie the knot and I would have to say I'd be pretty disappointed because I've always thought that she would marry some guy outside the royal family. I'm not saying that Princess Umi Kathum's son is not good enough for her.

I adore her along with all other Bruneians and we'd love to see her well-married. She deserves the best & she's still young. We'll see who she chooses to be with for the rest of her life and I'm sure everyone will be satisfied with her choice. She's a smart lady.

Thanks LullaBelle. I always thought the criteria for the succession was age (aside from being HM son). On HRH Prince Azim, he seams so distant from reality that its becoming bizarre. His clothes, his dress style, his rings, etc., all do not fit the bill for a Brunei Royal of his stature. I wish he could take some advice so to settle down and be productive for his family.
On HRH Princess Azemah, I could not agree with you more but I would go further: the inter blood weddings are not at all healthy so if that is true, I feel sorry for her and for the cousin too. Now, is HRH Princess Fadzilah also dating/seeing someone. I think she is prettier than the sister.

Well, you do not know how much he has in his wallet or how much comes out of it. No one ever knows but yes, he should've become more useful to the country and to the world since he loves publicity. I mean he could use it in a much more positive way. Sure he can party all night long but I wish he could contribute something in the world with all that money.

And about his lavish clothing and those blings he has, he just loves fashion. Apparently, he likes experimenting with fashion. Beauty knows no measures, right? And I do not know if Princess Fadzilah is dating anyone.

Well I guess I do know how much he has and in some point in time we all can do the math and see how much goes out of his pocket but you eloquently put the dots in place: his "show off" style could be directed to a far better use. Brunei is not known at all (at least outside of SEA and some parts of UK) but it could be if there was a Royal member that could be a leading model for the youth around the World. Take a look at HH Sheik Maktoum or HM Queen Ranya...
Now what I humbly think is that HRH Prince Azim is a classical example of a person that pays to be accepted/recognized. He pays to get people around him (celebs & the likes), he pays to be in the VVIP party's list, in short - he tries very hard to gather attention to him while this could be attained in a different and positive way. For instance, were HRH to dedicate himself to be a businessman (proper one), HRH would definitely be invited, courted and respected. Unfortunately, nowadays HRH is more of a mockery to Brunei than anything else and that, with all do respect is very bad for HM the Sultan's image + Royal Family and Country's image as well.
If I were among his friends I would certainly try to instill his natural abilities and try to convince HRH that being a Prince is more than enough. I would try to show HRH that there is no competition among siblings and that by living a properly balanced life, HRH could achieve much more than simple photos with celebs...but anyway, that is just my opinion.

My thoughts exactly. He could be so much productive. Other young royals in Brunei seem to balance studies and official duties pretty well so why can't he? Even his sisters manage to carry out official engagements when they're in Brunei.
A while back I heard that he wanted to make a movie, then there's always some piece of news about him buying expensive gifts for his latest celebrity crush. I really wonder why his parents didn't intervene earlier on to keep this sort of behaviour in check. Let's hope he doesn't turn into Prince Jefri.

Exactly! Now it seams no one really cares much about what HRH Prince Azim does and that is probably what causes his "strange" behavior to worsen...
Regarding the possibility of him becoming a "Prince Jefri", well first HRH Prince Azim would need to have much more "Savoir Faire" in order to become like "Prince Jefri" and second, HRH Prince Azim would need to have a lot more $$$ to sustain that sort of life style.
Times are different and nowadays the sort of thing being tried is out of touch and totally against what its expected from a Royal Family member.
Very unfortunate, not to say shameful for Brunei's image. Certainly a mockery for the European tabloids

Lovely photos. I wish I could see more photos and info on HRH Princess Fadzilah. It seams she is overshadowed by the sister. Why is that? Why is it that everyone talks about the sister but never about her? She (HRH Princess Fadzilah) is very savvy and very very pretty!

Now back to a more pressing subject: what is wrong with HRH Prince Azim? Has anyone seen HRH myspace page? What is that? I cannot believe no one sees what is really happening here!!! How come? The parents should work this out. Its tough being Royal and so on but its clear that HRH wants to get out of the closet but cannot do it without hurting the protocols. Very said to see someone waste his time pretending...

Both princesses are so beautiful. Their beauty is so natural, even with less jewelry and make up. I love them wearing traditional dress..

She graduated in International Studies at Kingston University and is now taking postgraduate course on the same field.

I believe its for her own good, nothing to do with official duties or so.

I also firmly believe she is the brightest of all HM children (boys and girls).

I am a great fan of her!
