How do you know this?

Madame Royale 06-16-2010 09:46 AM

:previous: By no means is it always credible, and it's best to wait for actual confirmation, but wikipedia has already updated Azrinaz Mazhar Hakim's page concerning the divorce, on this day, June 16th.

It also states that all styles and titles accorded to her by marriage have been henceforth revoked, as was the case when the Sultan divorced his former second wife, Pengiran Isteri Mariam.

brudirect.com confirmed it.

The announcement of the divorce was broadcasted on the National News.

More people were waiting for the 'special announcement' rather than watching the world cup match.

I sincerely wish the best for the royal family's future.

Does anyone know why or can correctly speculate the reason behind this divorce?

Humera 06-16-2010 04:36 PM

This is such a shock! Even more so than the news of their marriage had been. Apparently there were rumours in Brunei but I had no idea. I really wonder about the reasons, it's only been 5 years and the couple have two little children whom I feel especially bad for.
All of Azrinaz's titles have been revoked. I guess she'll go back to Malaysia now and the kids will probably stay with her since they're so young. I'm sure we'll see more of them once they're older.
Only a few days before CP Victoria's wedding, this is very sad news.

Is His Majesty Sultan Bolkiah of Brunei going to attend Crown Princess Victoria's wedding? The divorce is an unpleasant event for all the parties involved.

cd_1 06-16-2010 05:06 PM

well what were the rumours?

wingsofsky 06-16-2010 06:20 PM

It is very sad, but not very surprising. She was an independent working woman. But when she was with HM, she was not the second, but the third. The Sultan, His First wife and Azrinaz. This picture can't have been her dream about being a princess. But at first she must have taken being the second wife for granted. Their marraige did never look like a fairy tale at all.

It already amazed me that shemarried a Sultan 33 years older that her...& already married. Four of her stepchildren (how does it sound concerning them all, ha ha ha...) are older than she! (maybe they all failed to set proper relations? Such a trouble occurs frequently in such a little difference of age bertween stepmother & stepchildren. The latter usually suspect her to have married their father for life in luxury & prestige, not for love)
If she is really so independent, why did she sacrifice her "free, colorful life" to enclosure in a golden cage?
Providing she really returns to the work in the TV & get a programme to lead, how it's popularity would grow...

In fact, for what she needs, (sorry!) such an old chap?

michelleq 06-16-2010 07:12 PM

I wonder if she will be able to keep her jewels?

Biri 06-16-2010 07:28 PM

If the Sultan gave them to her as mahr, she will. Unless it was her decision to divorce. Then she should give them back.

Humera 06-17-2010 12:03 AM

Yes I wonder about the jewels too. She was given at least three different tiaras during the 5 years she was married to the Sultan.

Ponyo 06-17-2010 01:35 AM

I think every Bruneian knows the reason behind this divorce (which I will not speculate more here :D ). As a Bruneian myself, the divorce came as no surprise since I've been hearing about the 'issue' way back earlier this year. It was just a matter of time. Now, they finally publicized it and for once, rumor was true. :D

I only remember one diamond tiara, do you have pics Humera?:flowers:

dazzling 06-17-2010 03:42 AM

Shocking news :blink: I feel quite bad for the children and wonder if the Sultan will allow her to keep them if she decides to move back to Malaysia or stay.
They are too young to go through this but if teh couple are not happy or had problems which were not solveable then I guess seperate ways is the best way to go.
The did make a good match.

Will you please tell us about the real reason for us non-Bruneians? What were the rumours about?

cd_1 06-17-2010 07:07 AM
