In celebration of their 12th wedding anniversary (April 10) we take a look at the precious moments between His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and his wife Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein.
The beloved royal couple tied the knot 12 years ago in a special ceremony at Al Baraka Palace, Amman – in case you’re wondering, the bride shone beautifully in a traditional white and gold embroidered wedding dress paired with a veil – and they now have two beautiful children: Sheikha Al Jalila and Sheikh Zayed.
What makes their union a great love story? While Sheikh Mohammed is a revered leader credited for the growth of Dubai into a global city, Princess Haya is also an achiever in her own right having represented Jordan in the prestigious show-jumping category in the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Their marriage forged a great special bond between Dubai and Jordan but what really stood out is their devotion to each other that sealed their status as the #POWERCOUPLE. Both are equestrian fanatics and their shared passion for the sport marked many incredible moments between the loving couple. We have compiled their best papped photographs together.
