Posted in

In recent years, one member of the Moroccan Royal Family has been attracting the attention of fashion enthusiasts everywhere: the discreet Princess Lalla Soukaïna.

But who is she?

For those who don't know her, she's the niece of His Majesty King Mohamed VI.
She is the daughter of Fouad Filali and Princess Lalla Meryem, who is the eldest daughter of the late King Hassan II.


Brilliant studies

After obtaining her baccalauréat, she spent the first year of her studies in Paris, at the prestigious Sciences Po school.

But in the end, she opted to enrol at the Université Panthéon-Assas and then went to the United States as part of an exchange program.

In 2010, with a Master's degree in journalism and communication in her pocket, Princess Lalla Soukaïna returns to Morocco for good.


Brief appearances

Born on April 30, 1986, the first granddaughter of the late King Hassan II, has always been very discreet, with only a few brief appearances.

In 2000, she accompanied her mother and brother to her uncle King Mohammed VI's first official visit to Spain.

In November 2004, she accompanied her mother to Jordan to the Arab Women's Summit.

In January 2008, she travelled to Thailand with her brother.

Each time she appears, she's photographed and then disappears again.


Like mother like daughter


With each appearance, the media have been witnessing her growing charm and elegance, and this young princess looks more and more like her mother Princess Lalla Meryem, herself known for her elegance and charm.

Mother and daughter, very close, never cease to surprise by their beauty.


A trendy princess

Lalla Soukaïna ignites Moroccan women's magazines at each of these appearances. Each of her caftans has aroused the interest of all Moroccan women who immediately wanted the same one. Her taste, style, elegance and of course her beauty make her an icon of traditional Moroccan fashion.

It's worth remembering that this fashion enthusiast pursued her studies in the French fashion capital!

Her elegance is also recognised outside the country: following the marriage of Prince Albert II of Monaco and South Africa's Charlene Wittstock, a vote organised by the British magazine Hello Magazine, presented Lalla Soukaïna dressed in a magnificent Takchita, as the most elegant guest.



A sumptuous bride


This princess who makes all the young girls dream by her beauty and refinement married in 2014 with Mehdi Regragui. Her wedding sparked the interest of a whole nationwho hadn't stopped talking about it since announcing her engagement.

The wedding was celebrated in Rabat in the residence of Princess Lalla Meryem, in small committee, in the company of King Mohamed VI.

Lalla Soukaïna, elegant on a daily basis, was obviously sumptuous as a bride, wearing her traditional outfits beautifully.

Princess Lalla Soukaïna, always at the height of elegance, is of course one of the greatest icons of Moroccan haute couture.
