Prince Azim of Brunei Dead at 38
Prince Azim of Brunei, who was also considered a celebrity and film producer, has died. He was 38 years old.
According to CNN, the son of the Sultan of Brunei passed away on October 24th. The government did not disclose the cause of death.
Palace officials declared a seven-day period of mourning after Prince Azim's death. Located in Southeast Asia, Brunei is described as an absolute monarchy with a royal family extremely rich thanks to vast natural resources, including oil reserves.
According to The Sunday Times, Prince Azim spent much of his time in the family's London mansion in Kensington Palace Gardens.
The avid film buff later became a film producer and co-founded Daryl Prince Productions. The company has been involved in several well-known films including "You're Not You" with Hilary Swank, "The Time of Her Life" with Joan Collins and "The Happy Prince" with Colin Firth.

Others may remember Prince Azim as a celebrity who loved to throw lavish birthdays for themselves.
When Prince Azim turned 30, he threw a memorable party at London's Dorchester Hotel, which featured Faye Dunaway, Marisa Tomei, Raquel Welch, Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison and Pamela Anderson.
Other guests at his parties were Sophia Loren and Michael Jackson.
Despite his big parties and gestures to Hollywood A-listeners - he allegedly once delivered a $ 5.7 million necklace to Mariah Carey on her private jet - Prince Azim made it clear that money wasn't everything in his life.
"My mother made it clear to us that material things are not everything," he said in 2008. "If I had nothing tomorrow, I could live my life and still be happy and enjoy it because I don't." I don't need all of this gold. All I need is email and twinkie buns. "
Neighbor leaders expressed their condolences over the weekend. Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Prince Azim was "known for his kind and generous spirit and commitment to charitable, educational and youth causes."
According to CNN, the Indonesian Embassy said the prince will "always be fondly remembered".
