Well she always sits with the Royal family.
Princess Basma and her husband are present at the Sultan's birthday every year. They're obviously very close to the Brunei Royal Family.
The Sultan awarded the Princess with the Most Esteemed Family Order: Laila Utama, at his birthday in 2000 (She's wearing the order in the pictures)

That explains her sitting precedence.

Thanks. Looking forward for the Royal Banquet pictures...

azrinaz looked pretty with the tiara. no pictures of PAIPA Sarah?

Humera 07-15-2006 02:41 PM

Yes Azrinaz looks very good. You'd hardly know that she gave birth just over a month ago. Her tiara is lovely.
There are lots of pictures, including those of the lovely Sarah. I'll be posting them over the next little while.

Not knowing the Brueni Kingdom well, could someone perhaps list the Sultan's wives, former wives and children? That would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Linda 85

amina1 07-15-2006 03:17 PM

There isn't really that many other royals:confused:

Queen Saleha is the Sultan's first wife. He has six children with her, two sons (the eldest is the Crown Prince) and four daughters. He married his second wife, Mariam, in 1981 and divorced her in 2003. The Sultan has four children with her; two sons, and two daughters. The Sultan married his third and present second wife in August last year. Her name is Azrinaz Mazhar and she gave birth to a son last month.
And if my math is correct, that makes 11 kids in total.
