With a white traditional Moroccan cape, Morocco’s Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan attracted the attention of France again on Saturday.
The crown prince, wearing a white djellaba and a traditional Moroccan cape, took his place in the front row alongside Queen Sofia of Spain and Prince Albert of Monaco.
King Mohammed VI’s advisor, Fouad Ali El Himma, and Morocco’s Ambassador to France Chakib Benmoussa accompanied the prince.
Henri d’Orleans, who died on Monday at the age of 85, was a descendant of the last king of France, Louis-Philippe I, who ruled from 1830 to 1848.
It is not the first time the prince caught the world’s attention in France. In November 2018, photographers at the Armistice Day Commemoration in France captured the elegantly dressed Moroccan prince in a classy black suit and again in a black Moroccan cape.
His participation in international events was welcomed by international officials, including Emmanuel Macron, who warmly received him at the Elysee Palace.
