Hi there,

The wedding doesn't take place until Sept, so no, I don't have any pictures yet Hopefully there will be lots when the time comes :)) I've given the link to an article though, and will post any additional information I come across.

Take care,

Sean

how old is the crown prince?
im afraid the link isn't working.
seventeen is pretty young for a girl though.
I wonder if this is the same prince who apparentely gave an extravagant gift to Mariah Carey a couple of months ago...i forget what it was, a piece of jewellery i think.
I also remember watching something on tv about members of the royal family of Brunei shipping beautiful women from the US to one of their palaces and taking them on shopping sprees. That family sounds quite corrupt. The prince isn't much to look at either. I hope the poor girl knows what she's getting into.

Corrupt and, IMO, guilty of extremely bad taste. They seem to prefer a style that I refer to as "Louis-Farouk". No doubt this wedding will be quite the Louis Farouk event, with the Golden Rolls Royce Chariot being brought out, as well as the newely ordered diamond encursted cars . Tacky.

The Crown Prince is 30 years of age.

The marriage is probably arranged. The CP is getting older and it will be hard to find a virgin in his age group. So the Brunei courtiers have found a school girl for him to marry. I&#39;m not really impressed with CP Mutahdee. He comes across like a dolt to me.

Prince Jefri, at last count, has four wives. He has 17 natural children, and 18 adopted.
Prince MOhammed has one wife and has had only one wife. They've been married about 33 years.
The Sultan had two wives but divorced the younger wife in 2003, Princess Mariam. She is the mother of the current second in line to the throne, Prince Abdul Azim. I mean, she should have seen his ways; a year after she had Prince Abdul Azim, Queen Saleha gave birth to Prince Abdul Malik, who is my Bruneian prince.

I agree, Prince Sufri's wife is very pretty. I notice that she does not wear a head covering like the rest of the Brunei royal women. I think Princess Sarah, P. Al-Muhtadee Billah's wife, looks far better without the headcovering. She too is a beautiful young lady.

By the way, what illness does Prince Sufri have that causes him to have so many large bumps and lumps on his skin?

I would like to know this too? His wife is so beautiful but he has bumps all over him, even on his hands! I think he was born like this.

does prince sufri have one wife? how many children does he have?

i also think princess sarah is very beautiful. but i think she is too young for him. i wonder if they have anything in common. but if she were older, they would make a perfect couple.

I think P. Sufri has only one wife. I haven't seen anything about him having children.It is my understanding that the royal newlyweds have now left Brunei for a honeymoon. Is this true? And if so any clue on where they went for heir romantic getaway? No matter what we think, this is a lovematch on both sides.

They are not a true 'love match'. The crown prince had a serious girlfriend for many years, but the sultan thought she was too plain. On the crown prince's 30th birthday, he was told to choose a bride among a group of virgin girls that was presented to him. The crown prince and princess have only know each other for a few months. They look good together, which is what the sultan wants.

As for Sarah, she looks older with the headcovering. I thought she looked very attractive with the headcovering she wore on her wedding.

This is what I also heard. Do you know whether they asked for Sarah's consent? She looked very (or they) comfortable and happy by his side.

The old girlfriend was plianlooking? Does anyone have a photo of this young woman. Is she still living in Brunei?
I think the fact the P. A-MB chose Sarah means that he was attracted to her in some way. They seem comfortable together in public, and they talk to each other in public. Even if this marriage was arranged it just might work out. The Sultan has been married to Q. Saleha for 39 years. Their marriage was arranged; and it spite of the Sultan's numerous indscretions, and his second marriage, she has stood by him. It's amazing sometimes they even laugh together in public.

Plain doesn't necessary have to be in her appearance only. It could be her upbringing or background.
