The Crown Prince of Morocco, Moulay El Hassan, has just turned 18. The son of King Mohammed VI and Princess Lalla Salma can therefore aspire to the throne and claim to rule the kingdom, if of course his father hands over the reins. However, given the context, it is a huge fear that remains within the royal family. Explanations.
It was on May 8 that the crown prince of the Moroccan throne, Moulay El Hassan, turned 18. The age required to hope to govern the kingdom. The only son of King Mohammed VI will thus be able to take over the reins of this North African country when his father leaves power. At this stage, Moulay El Hassan is the only one who can claim to lead Morocco after the departure of the sovereign: power is passed from father to son, with priority given to the eldest. As the only son, the crown prince has a clear path.
However, just the idea that Moulay El Hassan could accede to the throne, in the short, medium or long term, sends shivers down the spine of Mohammed VI’s family. In the sense that this is the son of Princess Lalla Salma, the now ex-wife of the King of Morocco, about whom there was talk of « persecution » some time ago, who is going to rule Morocco with all the powers. According to some newspapers, Lalla Salma was forced to disappear by her sisters-in-law. Among them, Lalla Hasnaa, the younger sister of King Mohammed VI.
A situation that the mother of the future king of Morocco has still not digested. It has even been reported that Lalla Salma may seek revenge, as her family-in-law’s cramped conditions in the royal palace are still a very difficult pill to swallow. At a time when the question of the succession of King Mohammed VI is being raised, especially after Moulay Hassan’s majority, a big fear is taking hold within the in-laws, who could suffer from unorthodox behaviour towards the mother of the king in gestation. What will happen?
