The Prince is relatively old for his first marriage. He is already 44 years old... Congratulations to the Prince, Miss Oum Keltoum Boufares and both families.

Prince Moulay Rachid tied the knot with miss Oum Keltoum today in Rabat & in presence of his elder brother king Mohammed VI.

So this is engagement or marriage?

kathia_sophia 06-15-2014 03:52 PM

What a nice surprise! Congratulations.

I know there is 2 ceremonies right? sadaq and zafaf. I hope our Moroccan members can explain the details about this ceremonies. I think that foto is from their wedding sadaq. Zafaf is the wedding where the bride wears a nice white gown (caftan) and tiara, at least is what happened to Lalla Salma and The King.

I am looking forward to seeing wedding photos.

Ms Umm looks lovely. Is it a tradition to wear a green caftan for an engagement party?


Duc_et_Pair 06-15-2014 04:46 PM

When hearing the name Umm Kulthum, I automatically think about the singer with the same name (1898-1975), whom was/is regarded as the greatest female Arabic singer in history. Maybe fiance was named after her.

carlota 06-15-2014 05:18 PM

the bride looks like a beauty, can't wait to see more of her in the future with the rest of the royal family.
she does look a lot younger than moulay rachid though...

Its also a religious name .... Umm Kulthum was the Name of prophet Mohammad's - peace be upon him- third daughter.

Finally:smile:
congratulation for him fo the bride and the rest of the family i am sure that they are all happy Moulay Rachid finally find his way for the marriage life.
Oum Klthoum is nice name for lovely girl,it said she is friend with Lalla Soukaina maybe they meet that way.

Al_bina 06-16-2014 01:26 PM

Will Ms Kulthum be granted the title "Lalla" by King Mohammed?

Rossina 06-16-2014 01:51 PM

:previous:
Perhaps after the couple's wedding.
According to Moroccon websites Umm kulthoum is 27 years old (b. 1987).She was born in Marrakech where she attended Frensh schools & completed her education in France.

this is the marriage the so called "Moroccan Adul" not the Engagement! Normally after the official act of marriage her title is Her Royal Highness Princess Lalla Umm Kulthoum Boufares, but the MAP did not write it ........a mistake of the protocol I assume...by the way, His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid celebrates his 44th brithday on Friday, 20th of June 2014...
May God bless him as his wife!

Rossina 06-18-2014 12:00 AM

Still i think they will celebrate this marriage (Zifaf).This ceremony is similar to "Nikah" in the ME Arab countries.They are legaly married (tied the knot or signed marriage contracts) but with no wedding celebrations.Lalla Soukaina did the same.

Thank you for these explanations :flowers:. I hope that they will publish pictures of the second ceremony as well, the Morrocan brides are quite stunning will all their finary and jewellery.

Another question: Is it traditional for the bride to wear a green kaftan for the sadaq wedding? Is there a special symbolism behind the colour?
And do they start living together after the first, or after the second ceremony?

queenofcelts 06-18-2014 12:36 PM

Thank you for all explanations)Now everything is more or less clear.
