However, only a while ago following the birth of the prince, palace sources revealed that the monarch would not be allowed to set eyes on his son any time soon.

The same media gathered that the reason for the development has a lot to do with longstanding tradition, that forbids an Ooni from seeing the newborn or the mother until the natural hair of the child has been completely scraped off, and this could be in about six months time.

In addition, the sources disclosed that some rites would be performed before the heir to the throne is brought to the palace, and his arrival would be widely celebrated.
