While everything was ready for him to return to the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University of Benguerir, Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan decided to stay in Rabat, near his mother Lalla Salma, throwing away all the projects of his father and sovereign of the Cherifian kingdom.
What happened to the crown prince of the Moroccan throne, Moulay El Hassan, whose destiny was almost traced by his father, King Mohammed VI, is suddenly modified, to the point that some evoke a disobedience of the son towards his father whom he expects to hand over the power in the kingdom? Nothing is less certain given the omerta imposed by the royal palace on this issue. But one thing is certain, Moulay Hassan did not follow the recommendations of his father: to go and study in Benguerir.
However, all the conditions were met to allow the Crown Prince to study in an appropriate setting, after obtaining his international baccalaureate, with honours. As far as accommodation is concerned, King Mohammed VI had given instructions for an ecological chalet to be set up for this purpose in Moulay El Hassan, so that his son could study in excellent conditions at the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University.
On the management side, the former French Minister of National Education, Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, has even been recruited to be part of the teaching staff. She will be reinforced by Rama Yade, former Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and Human Rights in the French government. An elite corps on which King Mohammed VI has set his sights and which was ready to take charge of the higher education of the future king of Morocco. Except that the Crown Prince has made his choice.
Moulay El Hassan has, in fact, indicated that he would pursue his higher education in the Moroccan capital, Rabat, alongside his mother, Lalla Salma. The latter, cramped since her divorce in 2018 from King Mohammed VI, no doubt needed moral support and assistance from her son, who obviously chose to be in the right place at the right time. A difficult choice? Especially since many observers consider it a question of disobedience to the king. What about it?
