Prince Mohammed Ali and Princess Noal Wedding!

The wedding of Prince Mohammed Ali and Princess Noal happened, the release of official pictures of the event did not happen! So we'll just go with the bad quality pictures we have (a lot).


On Thursday, the 29th of August, the couple were married in a private ceremony in the house of Princess Tilsim of Liechtenstein (she's a distant member of the House of Mohammed Ali, the Egyptian royal house). There are no photos of that event!

The next day there was a dinner banquet at Çırağın Palace Hotel.


The bride wore a white, off-the-shoulder embroidered gown with 3/4 sleeves. Many of you think it's Elie Saab but it's not confirmed and honestly, that's Turkey, embroidery is their game over there, even Maxima's Natan skirt for the abdication of Queen Beatrix was made from a piece of fabric purchased in Turkey! Bottom lime: I think it's a local Turkish designer, I also believe that Noal wore a small tiara, it can be spotted in some pictures, but whether it's real/fake, new/old is unknown!
King Fouad wore the order of AlKamal and the collar of Mobammed Ali (I guess they actually belonged to his father, King farouk).



250 guests came from all over the world to attend the wedding, among them were:

Yasmine Shaarawi, the daughter of the late Princess Feryal Farouk and her husband Ali Shaarawi

Ali Orlov, the son of Princess Fadia Farouk (far left)
Grand Duchess Maria Vladmirovna of Russia (left in a blue gown and a kokoshnik tiara!)

And Naturally Princess Tilsim (Thanks to Luxurazzi and Sydney Luxurazzi for the spot)



Prince Paul of Roumania and Princess Lia of Roumania
also in attendance were Princess Lalla Hasnaa of Morocco (sister of King Mohammed), Prince Philip an Princess Isabelle of Lichtenstein, Prince Rudolf (their son and Tilsim's husband), Crown Prince Leka of Albania and Prncess Marie-Gabriel of Italy.

Princess Fawzia Latifa attended (but wasn't pictured), Fadila did not attend. Luckily Prince Fakhr ElDin was pictured!

Not his best picture, but anyway!

On saturday, the 31st of August, Princess Fatima Zahir (mother of the bride) hosted a brunch in the same hotel (I guess) where the royal couple got their heads covered for a while with a white and yellow piece of fabric for some reason!


And for some other reason, the bride decided to tie that fabric around her waist!


I like the dress and the Peter Pan collar!

Princess fawiza Latifa posed in her black and white dress while Fakhr ElDin looked curiously in that gift offered by someone to the bridal couple! (Not a tiara, sadly)


Below, we see king Fouad with Princess Lalla Hasnaa and an unidentified guest (with an awesome hat).



The next day, the king hosted a cruise on the Bosporus in honor of his son and new daughter-in-law.


The bride wore a casual white dress with 1/2 bell sleeves and details in the hemline.


And their royal highnesses danced! Love Fawzia's braid!


What do you think of Princess Noal's wedding dress?

  1. The unidentified guest with the pink hat looks like H.I.H. Princess Kenize Hussain of Kotwara. She is the daughter of the late Raja of Kotwara and the Ottoman Princess Selma Rauf Hanim Sultana.
    She is also known as Kenize Murad, and wrote a book about her mother's life : "Regards from the Dead Princess".

    1. Are you sure? The lady with a hat here seems too young to be Kenize Mourad!

    2. It's Princess Isabelle of Liechtenstein, Tilsim's mother-in-law.

  2. The fabric around the waist is actually an Afghan tradition.
    It should be green an it is a symbol of luck.
    The veil that's on their heads is also an Afghan tradition and it's called Aina Musaaf. The bride and groom are covered with a decorative shawl under which they are given a passage to read from the Quran (if they are Muslims)together followed by a decorated mirror to view themselves for the first time as a married couple. In the past decades, this would have been the first time that the bride and groom would have seen each others' faces due to their marriage having been arranged.

  3. To Anonymous september 6.46 : the fabric which should be green is not symbol of luck but symbol of islam which means the nekkah was done !

  4. Being a Muslim myself, I can pretty much that the green fabric is not symbolizing Islam, although green sometimes does but that's mainly cuz green is a symbol of good luck, Also, I don't know why they call it nekkah in Europe, it's an ancient word that's no longer used, the word used is "Zawaj"!

  5. nikkeh or nikkah is the public ceremony declaring them as husband & wife. it has to be performed before at least 2 witnesses to have the required sanctity.
    Zawaj means your partner according to nikkah as per Islamic law.
