Moroccan royal palace denies rumors of secret marriage for new king
Morocco, Politics, 7/27/1999
The royal palace in Rabat stressed on Monday that the new Moroccan King Muhammad VI is still single and that he did not get married secretly, and thereby denies the widespread rumors in this respect.
A source at the Moroccan royal palace asserted that these rumors stem from the assumption that the Moroccan king can not be invested to the throne unless he is married, a matter which was not confirmed nor denied by the royal family because the private life of its members has been one of the taboos through the 38 under the reign of King Hassan.
Yet, the sources noted it is the "duty" of the King to have a son of his own in order to inherit him after his death.
King Hassan II married in secret and announced his marriage after weeks. No pictures have ever been published of his wife, the mother of his five children, and her name was never mentioned in any of the Moroccan mass media.
