Diamonds and cannons as daughter of Brunei sultan weds

Posted on: June 11, 2007

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN: Diamonds sparkled and cannons boomed on Sunday when a daughter of one of the world’s longest-reigning monarchs wedded a civil servant in a ceremony whose origins date back generations. Thousands of people, baking under the midday sun, greeted the newly married daughter of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah and her smiling husband when they paraded through town after the brief ceremony at the 1,700-room palace. More than 2,000 guests, including Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak, witnessed the wedding of Princess Majeedah Nuurul Bulqiah, 31, and Pengiran Khairul Khalil, 32, beneath 12 crystal chandeliers in the palace throne room. The princess, wearing a tiara and holding a small bouquet of diamond-studded flowers, sat beneath a gold-leaf canopy at the head of the hall.
