Princess Lalla Khadija of Morocco, daughter of King Mohammed VI and Princess Lalla Salma, is preparing to spend a very special week. And why?
The only daughter of King Mohammed VI and Princess Lalla Salma, Lalla Khadija in particular, who came into the world on 28 February 2007, will celebrate her fourteen years of existence in exactly one week. A week that will be unlike any other, when you know how important she is to the Moroccans and the King. An anniversary that recalls the festive moments experienced by Moroccans on this day in February 2007.
Flashback: at the announcement, by the Ministry of the Royal Household, Protocol and Chancellery, of the birth of Princess Lalla Khadija, manifestations of joy and rejoicing were felt throughout the Cherifian kingdom. Lalla Khadija, the second child of King Mohammed VI, after Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan, had just enlarged the royal family.
The announcement of the happy news was greeted by a 21-gun salute that sounded in the middle of the capital. It was an opportunity for Moroccan men and women to take the direction of the royal palace of Rabat to present their wishes and express their joy, as Le360 reminds us.
The newspaper goes on to say that on this day in 2007, Moroccans expressed, in various forms, the marks of happiness and communion with the Royal Family by signing the Golden Books opened at the headquarters of the Directorate of Royal Protocol and the Chancellery, as well as in the various wilayas, prefectures and provinces of the Kingdom.
« The different cities of Morocco were also part of the festivities, wearing the decoration of the great days. The arteries, squares and public buildings were decorated with lanterns and covered with flags and colourful banners. To these festivities organised in the cities and countryside of the country were associated members of the Moroccan community living abroad, » the newspaper notes.
In addition, Le360 continues, a large number of political, diplomatic, arts, sports and business personalities flocked to the kingdom’s embassies and consulates in several countries, with the joy of expressing their congratulations to King Mohammed VI and Princess Lalla Salma, on this happy occasion.
On 28 February 2007, King Mohammed VI gave instructions to families whose newborn babies were born at the same time as Princess Lalla Khadija to receive royal gifts and presents. A day like no other. A week of preparation that the kingdom is undoubtedly preparing to live to celebrate the sister of the future king of Morocco.
