Arisan 12-24-2008 04:41 AM

Congrats to both of them!

Also, Jordan or Tee can you translate what is says on the website?

What do we know about S.Sheikha bint Saeid? How old is she? Any photos? And when do they marry? I cannot imagine that they will have a long engagement...

Warren 12-24-2008 05:43 AM

There's nothing yet on the WAM or Gulf News websites about an engagement, nor does a Google search bring up anything.
It may be too early, or the news sites may be waiting for an official announcement.

Arisan 12-24-2008 08:13 AM

Vis. the link to the forums posted by tee, from my limited Arabic, people seem to be leaving messages of congratulations. "Mabrouk" is the repeated phrase.

Thanks Jordan. Who is her father? Is he a Maktoum or a Nahyan?

tee 12-24-2008 08:23 AM

I dont know if its true or not. Everyone got their story from that messageboard. It could be a lie. Its not even on the frontpage of hamdan's website.

And as someone said since Wam has not reported it, this could be one of the millions of rumors that, he is engaged. (Some are already saying its not true). I dont speak arabic too. Use google translate.

Given that theres a number of people named Earl, Lord or even king I think its a moot point..;)

Besides, Sheikh/a is mainly used as a title in the gulf, in other places its more similar to respectfull adresses like Don or perhaps Sir.

The (small) picture was said to have come from Sheikh Rashid's website: www.sh-rashid.net
I've had a quick look but couldn't see it among the hundreds of photos of Rashid playing soccer; unfortunately there is no English language version of Rashid's site.
• Keep in mind that Sheikhs Hamdan and Rashid have a sister named Sheikha Sheikha so the chances of mistaken identity are increased.

They might not get married for years.

Someone on Hamdan's website said she is 18 and was born 1990.
(I dont know how true, the story is).

Neutral 12-26-2008 08:27 AM

The 27th of December is the Men's lunch wedding ceremony of Shaikha Hessa bint Mohammed bin Rashed Al Maktoums and not Sheikh Hamdans engagement ceremony as mentioned earlier. However the local Arabic radio stations and newspapers have been posting congragulating announcements from individuals and various companies in regard to Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammeds engagement.

*Deeply sorry for the previous misinformation

Turkish Delight 12-26-2008 11:18 AM

I think we will see articles from WAM , but like we all know Dubai Royals are different from European Royals. It's really hard to see marriages & engagements in media.

Between I think we can't see Sheikha's pic in media.She will be like Sheikha Hind.(First Lady of Dubai & Mother of S.Hamdan)

kingcat 12-26-2008 04:46 PM

We cant know now if she will be like Sh Hind :ermm:. Maybe she will be a public wife ?! NOBODY can say which way she will be.

A link was posted to Sheikh Rashid's website and what was stated to be a picture of Sheikha Sheikha bint Saeed.

Rather than continuing with a succession of posts repeating what has already been said, I have removed the first post and all the "link doesn't work" posts.

Im not sure Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammad got engaged at all. Theres just a rumour..:biggrin:

But if true, no..it might take year and years before a marriage is in place, if ever.

maryamii 12-29-2008 07:15 AM

sheikh hamdan got engaged and its official
he got engaged to his cousin shaikha shaikha bint saeed

Harold 12-29-2008 12:23 PM

I freely admit my ignorance about things such as marriage customs in the UAE. So, without intending any offense, would this have been an arranged marriage? Would Hamdan and Shaikha have had any say in it?

Sahar_eden 12-29-2008 12:49 PM

Hi everyone! Harold - yes they would ultimately have the final word on whether it would go ahead or not, but the marriage was most likely arranged by parents. Of course though, they'd spend time together (chaperoned probably) and decide if they liked each other or not.

It is true about Hamdan's engagement btw....

Very good question Fien. I guess it is because the Maktoums make no official announcements whatsoever so all we can do is predict/read the cards/gossip and hope something of it comes true. From a PR perspective it would be handy if the Dubai royals would become more open, but they don't want it. :nonono:

maryamii 12-30-2008 06:27 AM

its not gossip,,its true
they are engaged and all the dubaians kno abt it,,

Warren 12-30-2008 06:43 AM

The Al Maktoums may not make offcial announcements about family matters but the official newsagency WAM does. Both WAM and the Gulf News carried the reports of the wedding luncheon for Sheikha Hessa's fianc hosted by Sheikh Mohammed the other day. Neither agency has any report of Crown Prince Hamdan's engagement.

The only verifiable source we have for an engagement is an announcement on Sheikh Hamdan's website, fazza3, which has been posted at post 9. However, on planet-arabia.net a poster states it appeared on the message board part of fazza3 and could have been made by anyone. The other posts on planet-arabia relating to an engagement largely quote or repeat what has been posted here in The Royal Forums.

There is nothing else to be found. :question:

Fien 12-30-2008 10:57 AM

Well i think it's strange to say it's sure if there is no official news. I mean at least one of the newspapers and stuff can have it.
I heard from the girl 2 months ago he got engaged and i was like hmmm should i believe it is it true i didn't asked anyone here cause i tought if it's official it will be post here or on a website.. and now that people say it's true i was like how the girl knew it 2 months ago and u people know it now but no where we can find it officialy, i understand they don't have to give us story's about their private live but he is a prince... and i agree with Warren they did gave the official announcement about Sheikh Mohammed's daugther why not about the Crown prince..but maybe i'm seeing it in a wrong way..

Fatisse taleb 12-30-2008 06:06 PM

yes she looks exactly like Hamdan's sisters...the same family AL MAKTOUM.

miss b 12-30-2008 08:04 PM

i realize that she is a maktoum, but i also realize that marrying your FIRST cousin can lead to birth defects. could he not have found a second or third cousin? it has been proven that marrying as close as first cousins can lead to problems with your children. i think marrying your mother's sister's child is just a little weird. in the background, i can hear the tune from the movie, "deliverance" being played. just my opinion.

In the UAE, a test is required before cousins can marry, Its a requirement. It might look strange to you, but at the end of the day its their culture.

Sheikh Mohammed and Sheikha Hind are first cousins and I see zero defects in Sheikh Hamdan

jcbcode99 12-31-2008 04:15 PM

He's marrying his first cousin? While I don't see the health benefits of intermarriage, I respect their customs.
He is a handsome man and she is a lovely woman. They will (hopefully) have beautiful and healthy children together.

pupo 01-01-2009 07:19 PM

There is an extremely high rate of certain birth defects in Saudia and the Gulf states because of the high internecine marriage rate. One test isn't going to cover all the defects; maybe certain ones.

I dont believe that Sheikh Hamdan is engaged since there is no offical annoucement. I read thousands of time on the fazaa website that Hamdan married or engaged with different cousins on the past and turned out not true. Sheikh Hamdan's engagement is a big event on Dubai and if it would be true annaoucement will replaced on the WAM.

Does the UAE release a statement about engagments or weddings if there is no party?
They did not release a statement when Hamdan's sister Sheikha sheikha got engaged to Sheikh Nasser (thats if the story of their engagment is true).

I don't think there is. The Al Maktoum family seems to be very private about their affairs. There has been posts that say that the people of Dubai knew that Sh. Hamdan was engaged for a month or so now. Though whether that is true or not is up for question.

monchichi 01-10-2009 01:20 PM

There will be an offical announcement about the wedding cermony. Its not common to announce engagements.

Neutral 01-15-2009 06:11 AM

Though publicly announced, it's not part of the engagements and weddings customs of the UAE that engagments are officially announced.

Zowye 01-15-2009 08:03 PM

Congrats to him and her ( she sure was a cute kiddo) if the translations and the information provided proof to be correct. But like some folks her cousin marrying cousins not even once or or 2nd generation but cousin cousin in the long term can ( I hope this will not be their case and wish them good luck) signify birth or some called them congenital effects. Anyway I still wish them good luck and hopefully it won't occur to them regardless of what science says may God bless them! >_<

I have to agree with LadyLove how come people in UAE say it's true? Was it written in a magazine? i mean the person who wrote it on the forum could be anyone right? And should we believe people on forums/website saying the truth?
I still have my doubts... probably he is engaged but no one knows and people are just assuming things i think no one know for sure.. cause if i have to believe my friend from UAE he was engaged long time 2 times one time he reject and said he didn't want to be engaged with the girl anymore and they break up...

zabeel123 01-31-2009 03:09 PM

well yes, it hasnt been published or anything but you have to understand in dubai all "known" families talk(quietly of course lol) and it is mostly mothers and grandmothers and they are usually more reliable then any source that i know. i also have to say it is known he is engaged but so many young people in dubai get engaged(not only maktoums) and not all of them get married.

We have one song in Russian and it says that "Royals can do anything except love-match (marry the one they love). Well, maybe it's sad but true. Being the member of the royal family is very hard because you have the responsibilities and duties before your family and the whole country. I believe there are some rules that can't be broken, especially by the Crown Prince.
I have a sense that Hamdan willl marry a girl from Al Maktoum family when he'll be 30 years old, like his father.

Well, at least maybe it's not so bad. I read one scientific psychology research about man-woman relationships in Arabic countries. And it says that in classical old tradition man can tell about the girl as a future bride to his parents because he has just a special interest in her. If their parents arrange for engagement, they can meet and during the meeting the sympathy to each other can appear but love can arise only after wedding.
So it's different understanding of love.
I know that there's some things like "love at first sight" but it's soo unreal to find your all time love just looking into eyes...it happens but very rarely.

I hope you understands me, tell me if I'm wrong. Arabian people can know better.


ps.Though maybe Hamdan feels himself not so conservative and can date someone in secret despite the fact that it's forbidden...we can't say exactly. His private life is only his private life .

you said it correct the last sentence it's his private life and it's really hard to be a royal many people think they have a easy life but they dont! 'm a muslim too and my family asked us many times what's love? Love will happen when you married with each other and then you'll find out what love is..
I hope he's happy...

I agree with you but I have to add regarding love. Love will happened regardless if you are married or not to the person that you are willing to e together in sickness, poorness, physical changes ( due to bad habits or to heatlh issues) or something that God ( Allah's test you upon you bond) if you make it through married or not and you are still together congrats. I hope Hamdan as well all of my muslim and other religions marry the one they love and discover it before and dare and go upon the ultimate step with marriage. Is better to be marry in love yet this may not apply in some cases love can blossom anywhere. That what makes more interesting :flowers:

interesting... well congrats to the happy couple if they are truly happy and what not. it is always exciting to hear that one is engaged. hopefully for the right reasons. i just hope there are feelings of some sort there and it will be a happy union for both.

Lanalique thanks for clarifying the doubt. For me is sad :sad:, but it's must be of this way:ermm:

So...if we have broght up this topic again...any news? parties? invitations?This engagement rumours broke out like a flame and made a big hype. And now it's quiet. Why? It's better to know the truth then reading information from the net.

Ok, if that's true and some forums are true too, so that's the pictures of young Sheikha Sheikha bint Saeed:
when she was young
very young :)
a teen I suppose
I think she hasn't changed much ))

hello everyone...i am new here in this forum but i have been reading all about the royals world wide and i really enjoy doing it...=)
As i read here about CP Hamdan's engagement i am a little confused i dont know how things work in the middle east when comes do relationships. I have seen pics of CP hamdan lately and i don't see any engagement ring in his hand...Usually when u're engaged dont u wear a ring?? =/
How do people know for sure that he's engaged?? was it reported in WAM?

dazzling 03-03-2009 10:06 AM

Welcome Lindinha !
Men in the Gulf dont usually wear engagement rings nor wedding rings. The engagement was mentioned on Sheikh Hamdans official website. If you start from post 1 of this thread you can read about it.
