How are the brunei royalties "paid" ..like do they receive some kind of salary from the government ? I read somewhere that the Sultan of Brunei is worth like 15 Billion dollars and was used to be the richest man before Bill Gates. The sultan must be paid like a lot.

The divorce proceedings and settlement was a little exorbitant from what was reported in the papers.

I don't think his wealth comes from his personal salary. Being a sultan means that he controls parts of the resources in his country. I hear that he also invests his money in world stocks, so that could also contribute to his wealth.

.
Each royal family member receives a monthly salary, even the children. That is the reason why the Royals adopt so many children, in addition to having their own - To get extra income. These adopted children are never seen in the media or newspapers - they are commoners of different nationalities and are not raised as equals with their royal siblings.

Now that P. Sarah is a Royal, she will be receiving a very large monthly sum, and so will her parents.

LONDON - JANUARY 13: Actress Faye Dunaway and Prince Azim of Brunei arrives at the Funky Buddha Tsunami Earthquake Appeal on January 13, 2005 at Funky Buddha in London. The party aims to raise funds for the Asian earthquake and tsunami relief effort and also introduces a new cocktail which will be on sale all year with 50 percent of sales going to the appeal. (Photo by David Westing/Getty Images

Its funny how Getty keeps calling Azim the Crown Prince of Brunei. I had to edit the caption.

I'm guessing you are asking the name of the Sultan of Brunei. His full name is His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah Ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddien

Hope that this largesseof royalties are beneficially utilised for the people of brunei and i heard that the sultan is a generous man who looks after his kingdom- good for him and long live the sultanate .

I really admire HRH Sarah. At such a young age, she 's already discharging such filial peity fulfilling the dreams beyond any parents imagination.

Has anyone heard HRH Princess Sarah speak before like address an audience or something? Wonder how she sounds like. Any more updates on the lovely princess ,pictures news , school work etc etc.Would love to learn more about hrh.

Prince Azim looks like a lively person and rather interesting which is usually the case for those who has lived in vibrant and metropolitan London with the quirky British humour.

What's CP Billah like?

Yes, there is free medical care and free education in Brunei, as well as a Foundation set up by His Majesty to help those in need.

I'm sure P. Sarah's family are happy now, but many people do not know that her mother, was in fact, very unhappy about the marriage in the beginning. Due to her daughter's young age.

As of yet, P. Sarah has not made any official speeches, so most people are curious to hear how she sounds too. Apart from the post wedding banquets and functions, she is not done many official duties yet. And Brunei press are not likely to feature interviews, as the Royals are kept mostly out of the public scrutiny, apart from official duties and speeches they perform.

Found this picture of Sarah wearing grey, on another site. I have never seen it before, and I thought it was a nice picture to include here.

The other pics are from the book "Curahan Kasih" - 1 is of the royal couple when they were courting and the other of Sarah on a school field trip.

Hi Zina

Thanks for the lovely pictures! In fact I was looking for the book " curahan kashi" .do you know anywhere i could purchase that? anymore pictures found in the book as well? would love to see more of Sarah's picture before meeting the prince or of younger days example.

The first picture of Sarah in gray is actually purple. I have seen the other version of the same outfit somewhere in the royalty brunei thread and Sarah as usual looks resplendent but she looks especially good in this one.

I'm afraid Curah Kasih is not available in local stores. It was a gift from the His Majesty the Sultan and Her Majesty the Queen to the royal couple(crown prince billah & princess sarah) on their wedding day and only given to the guests during their wedding ceremony 9th Sept 2004 including other special gifts.

I have a photo of Princess Sarah when she was younger. The other photo is with her grandfather.

I'm afraid you can't purchase the book 'Curah Kasih' Minnie sorry. It was a gift for the royal couple from His Majesty and Her Majesty and was only given to guests on the royal wedding on the 9th Sept 2004. There is even a beautiful letter from their Majesties to the Royal couple in the book and one very good poem about life written by His Majesty's late father and the crown prince's grandfather.

hi Alfie

Thanks for the great looking pictures. Hrh highness's really an affectionate person from the picture with granddad.

So what's in the book curahan kasih? I only read about it in the papers but they did not say much about the bool except that it is a commemorative book. If not too much of a trouble hope you can post more of Sarah's pictures from the book like school days trips etc etc.

would you be able to reproduce the poem here?

Here are some. Left to Right: Picture of a very happy couple; Sarah on her school trip (looking very much like the supermodel!); Crown Prince first meeting Sarah on his visit to her college. At Wimbledon , UK around June 2004. I will try and add more later on.
