A source: It’s official. No national mourning after the death of Princess Lalla Latifa and no cancellation of any cultural, sporting or artistic activities in Morocco

In a new development surrounding the death of Princess Lalla Latifa, the mother of King Mohammed VI of Morocco, reliable official sources denied reports circulating that official mourning has been declared and festivals and cultural events in the Kingdom have been cancelled.

The sources confirmed that these news are baseless, stressing that no decision has been made to cancel scheduled activities, including the closing ceremony of the Mawazine Festival in Rabat and the Gnawa Festival in Essaouira.

The sources stressed that life will continue normally in the Kingdom, and that all events and festivals will take place as planned without any change.

This denial comes after the official spokesperson for the Royal Palace announced the death of Princess Lalla Latifa on Saturday, 29 June 2024, corresponding to 22 Dhu al-Hijjah 1445 AH, at the age of 78.

These official statements confirm the keenness of the Moroccan authorities to maintain the continuity of cultural and social life in the country, while respecting the feelings of grief over the passing of the late Princess.
