When it comes to sporting ability, Sheikh Mohammed’s youngest are proving they can keep up with the big kids.
Earlier this week, we watched in awe as two of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s daughters showcased the incredible sport of “horse surfing”.
Now, it’s looking like the two youngest royals have already inherited the rest of the family’s love for adventurous pursuits.
HRH Princess Haya bint Al Hussein has shared some adorable new photos of her children, Al Jalila, 9, and Zayed, 5.
The young Sheikha is pictured taking part in a swimming race for her house at school – even managing to flash her mother a quick mid-swim grin.
قدمت الجليلة أداءً جيداً لفريقها المدرسي في مسابقة السباحة اليوم. حتى أنها تمكنت من استعراض ابتسامتها الجميلة لإلتقاط صورة لها خلال السباق… وهذا الأمر وحده يتطلب الكثير من الموهبة! Jalila swam really well for her house in the school swim gala. She even managed to smile for her Mama to take a picture during a race… that takes talent!
Al Jalila delighted her classmates at Kings’ School Dubai last year when her mother and father, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, dropped by for a school visit.
Meanwhile, little Zayed appears to be following in his horse-loving dad’s footsteps, taking riding lessons on his new Argentinian Polo Pony.
Other members of the UAE’s royal families have competed in the Olympics – and by the looks of things, we might have two more contenders on our hands.
Family goals? We think so. Here are some more super cute snaps of the youngest royals…
الجليلة، عائلتك تتمنى لك في عيد ميلادك التاسع ان تكون حياتك مليئة بالسعادة، والصحة والعزيمة. ستظلين دائما صغيرتنا صاحبة القلب الحنون والمفعمة بالنشاط والحيوية. نحبك دائما Happy 9th birthday, Al Jalila! All our family wish you happiness, courage and good health always Insha Allah, you will always be our gentle, big hearted, little firework! We love you!
