Wait a minute...aren't they first cousins?  I know that's more prevalent in various parts of the world but it's still weird in my book.

They are double first cousins:

That's a little scary. My grandfather and his brother married my grandmother and her sister in 1922 Ireland, producing quite a few double first cousins. I cannot imagine children of those two marriages intermarrying.

Well, just look at the Scandinavian royals.  Haakon and Maud.  Ingeborg and Carl.  Their children Olav and Martha were related in so.many.ways.

It does seem to be traditional there from what I can tell and it's not like anyone gets the opportunity to mix with the opposite sex outside of family. But double cousins? That would be a little concerning for me. I hope they consulted a good geneticist at least.

I imagine that there are a lot of other cousin marriages involved in their family tree so they might end up sharing more than the usual max DNA for double cousins as well.

I understand it's cultural as well as practical in keeping all the power and wealth to as tight a circle as possible but it just doesn't seem wise. 
if i am not mistaken these kind of medical tests are required in some Gulf states like UEA ,but not sure of Oman

Do you know, if they still practice the thing of the bride a) having to prove she's still a virgin and b) having to prove that she can have children? (not specifically in Oman, but generally in the Arabic royal world. I would imagine there're differences in the various Arabic vountries)

I know this was common in European countries as well.

Tests prove that the bride can have children is more likely,yes...in the end for a crown prince his first dutie is to provide a heir and continuty of the dynasty and i gues it's the common thing in the world of dynasties worldwild.

The rest i din't think so,of cours there are difference between countries but even in gulf royalties it's not weird or uncommon that a princess/sheikha could have a boyfriend before her marriage. Some sheikhas really live la vida loca

Earlier this month HM Sayyida Ahad, wife of Sultan of Oman received Hind a cancer Fighter who wished to meet Her Majesty.
Sadly a couple of weeks later it was announced the passing of Hind  (May she rest in peace)

That's so sad. I hope the parents and all relatives/friends of the girl will find peace.

I'm happy that her wish was fulfilled. What a beautiful girl she was and what gorgeous dress she had.

I agree - so very tragic.

What a beautiful shade of green. She looks very regal. Nice to see these kinds of pictures coming out of Oman. So many years with Qaboos who didn't have a queen (what do you call a Sultan's wife?), this is a nice change.

Is Sultana not the address of the daughters of a Sultan? I know there are many in the Arab world who use Sultana as a first name. But the actual title is for the Sultan's daughter.

i think this is the traditon in the ottaman dynasty,i never come across an arabic dynasty old or new that the Sultan daugther is called Sulatana however some of the wives did hold that title..
Sultana or Sultan yes it's also a commun name in the arab word but as i said never a daugther of a Sulatan was a styled as Sultana unless she took the throne like Sultana Radia but then that was in India and not the Arab world.
