Prince Adul Malik, 31, the youngest son of the Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah and Queen Saleha, married a data analyst Dayangku Raabi’atul ‘Adawiyyah Pengiran Haji Bolkiah, 22, Sunday in the capital Bandar Seri Begawan. Festivities will continue until Wednesday. Her shoes were French Christian Louboutin heels, with the famous red-soles, encrusted with Swarovski crystals.
The lavish wealth of the royal family was evident in the diamond and gem-encrusted wedding clothing on the bride and groom, and the banquet in the palace hall, which can accommodate 5,000 guests. The absolute Islamic monarchy earns most of its wealth from oil and gas, having gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1984.
