Malaysian Princess Marries Dutch Footballer In Lavish Ancient Ceremony


Dennis Muhammad Abdullah, a former semi-professional footballer from Lisse, in the Netherlands, married Princess Tunku Tun Aminah Sultan Ibrahim: the only daughter of the Sultan of Johor, Malaysia.

28-year-old footballer Dennis met 31-year-old Princess Tunku Tun Aminah in a cafe when he worked as a marketing manager for a Singapore football team.


It is a story seemingly straight out of the pages of a fairytale, sprinkled with Disney magic: boy meets girl in a cafe, falls in love with the girl, turns out the girl is a real-life princess.

Read the story till the end to know about the whole fairy-tale ending. 

Princess Tunku Tun Aminah is the only daughter of one of Malaysia’s most powerful sultans: Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar. The Dutchman and the princess wed according to Muslim Malay custom at the Serene Hill Palace, the royal family’s residence in the southern city of Johor Bahru. 

The private ceremony was attended by close family and friends.
