Prince Azim of Brunei dead at only 36.

Supposedly, he died after a "long illness". What could it be?

https://borneobulletin.com.bn/2020/10/nation-mourns-loss-of-a-prince/

 

He was last in the news when Brunei declared homosexuality punishable by death... and he was a little suspicious himself...

He also was a film producer and international jet-setter.

Walther Sommerlath (the younger one and Queen Silvia's brother) dead at 86.

https://www.svenskdam.se/kungligt/walther-sommerlath--sa-var-hans-sista-tid/7013653

Just around a week ago I read about him in the news, he moved to live on some royal place with his son and his son's two daughters. Both he and his son were divorced. Silvia looks pretty rough in the new photos, we'll probably soon see more losses because both the queen's and the king's siblings are aging and most of them aren't very healthy. Also, there's Marianne Bernadotte.

Another Nigerian traditional ruler dead (there are over one hundred of these and multiple die every year), Ikenwoli Godfrey Emiko, the Olu of Warri.

Only was on the throne of Warri (the kingdom ceased existing 172 years ago) for five years after his older brother's longer reign. Warri is a town with around 3 million inhabitants, known for oil and an unique pidgin english. Ikenwoli was 65.

I watched Atlantic Crossing and decided to read a bit about the characters.

King Harald V had two sisters:

Ragnhild (1930-2012)

and Astrid (born 1932) who is going to be 89 in february.

 

Ragnhild's widower, industrialist Erling Lorentzen is still alive and will be 98 on the 28th of this month. He is still in good shape.

Died 9th March 2021

Queen Silvia was in hospital for a while after a fall at her home.

 

Also, forgot to mention that Walther's death cause was dementia. Their mother also had dementia.

Not sure if this is the best thread so feel free to move or merge, but - Princess Latifa of Dubai? Dead or alive, no-one knows? Will the regime dare to harm her now that she's come to the world's attention?

With how much news coverage this is getting I reckon she will be married off to some Sheikh (if not already) and then she'll somehow vanish for a bit and then re-appear going to Canada seeking refuge.

Might've just been the shadows in that dimly lit bathroom, but I thought I saw Madeline McCann hiding in the corner!

This is the lady I really struggled to establish if she was alive or dead during the submission process.

 

She appears to be alive and dead. :-)

And still pends...

New Zulu king is Prince Misizulu:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-57035157

 

However, apparently there's been a family dispute and a brother really doesn't like that.

Also, the rumour that Queen Dlamini died of poisoning was just a "misunderstanding".

There doesn't seem to be anything new there suggesting that her condition is any worse.  It just says that she's been vaccinated and that CP Haakon is going to get the jab too.
