Brunei Prince, Abdul Mateen, is finally addressing the news of his elder brother, Prince Haji Abdul Aziz’s passing. He took to his Instagram recently to shed some light on the cause of his untimely death. This has been a topic of discussion among the public over the past few days.
For those who don’t know, the 29-year-old heartthrob is the tenth child, as well as the fourth son of His Majesty Hassanal Bolkiah, Sultan of Brunei with his former wife, Puan Hajah Mariam binti Haji Abdul Aziz. While the late prince is the second son in the family.
“Earlier this year, my brother was diagnosed with severe systemic vasculitis, which is an auto immune disease. An auto immune disease is a condition of an abnormal immune system where the antibodies attack its own body tissue,” Prince Mateen revealed in the post.
He added, “At the same time, he was also coping with bipolar disorder, which made the fight more difficult. Eventually, my brother succumbed to multiple organ failures caused by persistent infections due to the disease, which led to his passing on the morning of 24th October 2020. We wanted to share this information about my brother’s illness as this is what he wanted.”
Prince Mateen also thanked all those who shared their warm prayers and condolences. He also shared that he and his family will greatly miss the deceased royalty family member. “We are okay,” he updated his followers, before concluding, “We just miss him. Till we meet again, Abang ❤️ Al-Fatihah.”
We’re sincerely hoping that Prince Mateen and his family members will stay strong for the rest of the days to come. R.I.P Prince Azim.
