AN Instagram post by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, received more than 1,000 likes per minute on Monday night after it showed him riding the London Underground, reports www.timeoutdubai.com
One of the iconic features of the British capital, it is used by millions of people every single day. And it can now add the Crown Prince (left) and his father, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (right), Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai to that list.
While it is not entirely evident which line the Dubai Royal family were taking or where they were going, the red poles suggest it is the Central Line, which runs all the way from West Ruislip in the west to Epping in the east (that being the longest single journey one can take without change; a total of 34.1 miles). It passes through the likes of St Paul’s, Tottenham Court Road, Bank, Oxford Circus, Marble Arch and Notting Hill Gate.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, who married the stylish Princess Haya of Jordan in 2004, has relaxed the dress code in Dubai in recent years by regularly appearing in denim jeans, T-shirts and caps, especially during Dubai World Cup week.
Princess Haya has become famous for her stellar sense of style, with block colour, classic shapes and a seriously cool collection of hats among her sartorial staples.
The couple often race together at Royal Ascot to watch runners from the Sheikh’s Godolphin outfit.
