Sheikh Hamdan Shows Off His Sporting Prowess (And New Specs)
Well, they’re not really his… but they should be.
Chances are that if you’re social-media savvy, you’ve seen HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum over your Instagram feed this weekend.
The Crown Prince of Dubai, who is also Chairman of the Executive Council, shared an image of himself spear-fishing in the depths of the Arabian Gulf on Thursday.
But it was the blue waters of the emirate’s seas that Sheikh Hamdan explored over the weekend.
Sharing an image of himself clad in a wetsuit, flippers and snorkel, the royal captioned the action shot: “Breath… better make it count!”
And judging by this snap of his catch, he had a pretty successful day of it:

However, despite the 129,000 likes HH’s diving photo attracted, our eyes were on his latest upload…
Sheikh Hamdan later shared a selfie in which he donned a pair of glasses – a new look for the Crown Prince that we’re really feeling.
Alas, the royal doesn’t actually need help to see, but he was just trying on his friend’s specs for size.
But should he ever stray from 20/20 sight, he’s sure to suit a pair of round rims.
The royal, who boasts more than 5 million Instagram followers, regularly posts snapshots of his life, with many showing a unique side to life in Dubai.
So, we’ll leave you with some of our most recent favourites (and yes, they’re mostly animal-based)…
