Moroccan People to Celebrate 11th Birthday of HRH Princess Lalla Khadija

 The Royal family and the Moroccan people will celebrate on Wednesday the 11th Birthday of HRH Princess Lalla Khadija.

On February 28, 2007, the Ministry of Royal Household, Protocol and Chancellery announced the birth of HRH Princess Lalla Khadija, second child of HM King Mohammed VI after HRH Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan.

On this day, after the news was welcomed with a 21 gun-salute, groups of Moroccans headed to the Royal Palace of Rabat to express their joy and happiness.

HRH Princess Lalla Khadija has already made her first steps in public life. She appeared in February 2013 with her mother, HRH Princess Lalla Salma, Chairwoman of the Lalla Salma Foundation for Cancer Prevention and Treatment, in the inauguration in the city of Casablanca of a center for children with cancer. 

On May 25, 2017, HRH Princess Lalla Khadija took part in a ceremony in Rabat, during which HRH Princess Lalla Salma, Chairwoman of the Lalla Salma Foundation for Cancer Prevention and Treatment, received the gold medal of the World Health Organization (WHO) in recognition of her action and commitment to fighting cancer in Morocco and worldwide.

On June 24, 2017, HM King Mohammed VI, accompanied by HRH Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan, HRH Prince Moulay Rachid, TRH Princesses, and HH Prince Moulay Ismail, chaired at Casablanca’s Royal Palace the graduation ceremony of the year 2016-2017 of the Royal school.

Speaking on this occasion, HRH Princess Lalla Khadija expressed, on her behalf and that of her classmates, great honor and joy for HM the King's benevolence and solicitude for this ceremony.

Afterwards, HRH Princess Lalla Khadija and her classmates staged artistic performances in Arabic, French, Spanish, English, Russian and Chinese, highlighting the opening up of Morocco, its African vocation and the deep and sincere love that all Moroccans have for their motherland.

On this occasion, HM the King handed the "Prize of Excellence" to HRH Princess Lalla Khadija.
