I hope the rumours are not true, but he may have passed away. A very sad for us all.

Really? Where did you hear that?

Nothing on the wires or anywhere else I can see.

Not heard anything but wouldn't be surprised as it wouldn't be the first time the official notice was delayed.
I'm sure that deals are already being cut again though

Fair comment, but haven't they already agreed succession in AD? It's been common knowledge that he hasn't been well for years and has been handing over various of his jobs/roles.

It's not verified and I would hate to say anything that could be construed as disrespectful. There may be others on here who know, which is the reason for the post.

It's all a bit nervewracking.

I also heard this yesterday but.. there is a big Maktoum wedding tonight so maybe that has delayed announcements, they wouldn't want to cancel !

The mrs has come home saying the same thing.

Hopefully it's not the case and just a sad rumour.
