Is it normal for the family to marry first cousins? And in this case even double first cousins? Genetically not a very smart decision...

Double first cousins share 25% of the same DNA. First cousins share 12.5% of the same DNA. I hope they have proper genetic testing to calculate the coefficient of relationship to determine if they share the full 25%

Not sure about Oman specifically, but it still is common enough in other Muslim monarchies. The Dubai royal family is a good example of that. Not only are Mo and Hind cousins, but Hamdan married his first cousin as well who is related to him on both sides (his wife's father is Hind's brother which makes him also Mo's cousin). His brothers also married cousins at the same time (though I believe not as close, second cousins).

Yes one would hope some genetic testing is done before hand. Even if traditional, one can hope some concern for future children is taken.


Big week for the prince as he was named the Crown Prince only a few days ago.

And the daughter doesn't have a name? Her only identity is being the daughter of a prince and in the future the wife of another prince?
