Prince Haji 'Abdul 'Azim of Brunei (Malay: Yang Teramat Mulia Paduka Seri Duli Pengiran Muda Haji 'Abdul 'Azim; born 29 July 1982) is the second born prince of Hassanal Bolkiah, Sultan of Brunei and fourth in line to succeed the throne of Brunei.

Life

Azim was born in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, 29 July 1982. He is the eldest child of the Sultan of Brunei, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and Pengiran Isteri Hajah Mariam. He was educated at International School Brunei, Raffles Institution, and Oxford Brookes University.

In 2008, he was sent to attend the nine-month officer training course at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, but he dropped out after one week.[1]

In 2009, he designed unisex weekend bags for MCM.[2] The proceeds went to the Make A Wish Foundation UK, a charity in which he is one of the patrons.[3]

In May 2011, at a charity show in Brunei Darussalam, held at the Empire Hotel and Country Club's Indera Samudra Hall at which 31 persons with autism performed, Prince Azim said that those with autism should be treated with respect, "as would to any of your family members".[4] On 27 April 2013 at the opening of the 2nd ASEAN Autism Network (AAN) Congress, he urged that appropriate support be given to families with autistic family members.[5]

In April 2019, in light of homosexuality being made a crime punishable by death in Brunei, gay blogger Perez Hilton alleged that Prince Azim is also gay.[6][7][8]
