Prince Moulay Rachid, are you trying to seduce me?

It's not unheard to crush on King Mohammed VI, with his iron will and good looks. His father was a looker, too, as was his grandfather Mohammed V, seen here at a Dr. Strangelove costume party. But I never thought anyone would fall head over heels in love with Prince Moulay Rachid, Mohammed VI's brother who isn't even first in line for the throne.

However, after discovering King of Hearts I stand corrected. King of Hearts is a blog about the sauciness innate in Morocco's 2nd-in-line prince. The picture at left suggests it's also about the uses and abuses of Photoshop filters.

Yesterday was the good prince's 37th birthday. King of Hearts was all over it, naturally. From the post, I learned that His Royal Highness Prince Moulay enjoys golf and "helping small and mid-sized museums." What a rajul!

Unfortunately, not everyone is content to let the King of Hearts play golf in mid-sized museums. Wayne Madsen, who wrote an article in Counterpunch about James Baker's maybe machinations, says Moulay is big pals with American neo-cons.

King of Hearts is far from the only blog that wants to dip its chips in some guaca-Moulay. Why are people such big fans? I see there's some talk that he'd be a better king than Mohammed--any idea why? Do you think he'd be more likely to do the right thing about Western Sahara?


  1. It is not their fault that you are shallow and rude. Some people are able to see pass the princely title and the throne and even the looks.

    Western Sahara is a political issue. Address it in an appropriate manner - political writing!. No need to hit below an individual's belt at the same time, it is irrelevant.

    Professionals do not write the way you do. Don't bring bad names to them journalists. Where are your ethics?

    (Fed up)

    The Dr. Strangelove comment was aces. Gave me a good chuckle.

    I so agree what was written in this article! I am glad that someone is finally exposing prince moulay Rachid for what he really is!...a party prince who lives off his poor people, who are suffering tremendously but no one seems to react...keep on exposing false people...good work!

    His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid is a very charming person, he is intelligent attractiv and has an amazing kindness. He is perfect in protocol and very smart. He would be a perfect king but of course nobody has the right to pronounce this!
    I met him personally and was impressed by his humble personality.
