So the enveloppe is only to be opened if no successor is choosen and installed? Why leave such an enveloppe.

Qaboos and his reign didn't have a real good name abroad. In NL there was commotion several years ago when then Queen Beatrix wanted to visit Qaboos (together with Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and his wife Máxima)

RIP!
I'm going to Oman in 4 weeks. I had hoped the Sultan would have lasted this long at least. But I hope that they are all sensible people and that the transition of power will go smoothly.

I wonder who the other options were ? Does this man have family and a son ? If so then that is the future

You mean the late sultan?
He never married and therefore he doesn't have kids,plus the new Sultan is one of his family..his cousin

As for other options most likely the family will chose a successor if there no document/will feom the late Sultan

Let say in my memory a vague memory popped up...I knew there were negative comments about a visit of Queen Bee, WA & Max to Qaboos several years ago. After posting my first post I googled a bit. It happened apparently in 2011, during the so called "Arabic spring". It seems according to some Qaboos had rhoughly acted on protests in Oman. Instead of the intended state visit to Oman, the Dutch royals had a private visit to Oman. Still question marks with some Dutch parties.

A few weeks ago he was still in Leuven (Belgium) being treated for cancer. He rented an entire hotel up to the end of January but left all of a sudden after a few days. Nobody knew why. He might possibly have received the bad news he was terminal back then.
