Rabat – A short clip circulating on social media has surprised many, showing the Crown Prince Moulay Hassan in casual mode.
The video shows the Crown Prince Moulay Hassan following his uncle, Moulay Rachid, through the throne room of Rabat’s royal palace.
As he passes the camera, the Crown Prince, who just turned 16 on May 8, flashes a peace symbol with both hands.
The video comes from a live broadcast of the throne room uploaded to YouTube by Spanish media channel La Vanguardia. It was shot on March 30 in Rabat, during Pope Francis’ official visit to Morocco.
The scene takes place after the speeches of Pope Francis and King Mohammed VI on the esplanade of the Hassan tower, and before the signing of the Al Quds Appeal in the same throne room.
Between the two official events, the camera was broadcasting the throne room live as the royal palace employees performed microphone tests as Prince Moulay Hassan and Moulay Rachid walked through.
King Mohammed VI and Pope Francis arrived half an hour later. During the signing of the Al Quads Appeal, and the Crown Prince Moulay Hassan sat a few steps behind his father and next to his uncle, Prince Moulay Hassan is back in the throne room.
The video was shared on the Facebook page “Casa Bel Visa” late on May 25 and has been seen 124,000 times in just eleven hours.
