Putera Mateen's personal life and achievements
Following the prince Putera Mateen’s 29th birthday on August 10, the Royal family in Brunei had expressed their desires to find him a wife as Mateen is entering the appropriate age for marriage.
Putera Mateen’s real name is incrediably long: Duli Yang Teramat Mulia Paduka Seri Pengiran Muda ‘Abdul Mateen ibni Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Paduka Seri Baginda Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah.
He has just celebrated his 29th birthday is the 10th of 12 siblings fathered by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei.
The young prince’s resume is impressive to say the least. He is a qualified helicopter pilot in the Defence Helicopter Flying School at RAF Shawbury, SEA games polo representative in 2017 and 2019, and armed with a Master of Arts in International Studies and Diplomacy, according to Likely.

At present, Prince Mateen resides in the luxurious Bruneian palace, which is said to have a total of 1877 rooms adorned with gold, diamonds and silver. Yet, the lifestyle of the superrich has never gotten to his head. In an interview with GQ Thailand, the prince was described as “a grounded man who doesn’t like to flaunt his family’s wealth,” and is “more interested in the simple life, his passions, time with family and friends, and his other noble pursuits.” What does he want in a partner? According to Mashable, the prince is quoted as saying.
Following his credentials, Prince Mateen’s partner should be someone with interests in Polo, aircraft and nature. At age 18 (and as one of the youngest entries at the time), Price Mateen enrolled in the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, the UK. Upon graduating in 2014 with the rank of Second Lieutenant, he has remained active in sports. Prince Mateen’s Instagram is filled with pictures of his time in the military, boxing, atop horses as he plays polo, spending time out and about in nature (i.e. walking along the beach, snorkelling) or at official functions.
