Now there’s another way to keep up with one of our favourite royals.
We check in with her Instagram feed on an almost daily basis (what can we say? We’re superfans).
And now we’ve got another way to access all our HRH Princess Haya bint Al Hussein news, as the royal has launched an official Twitter account.
Posting under the handle @hrhprincesshaya, the mother-of-two and passionate humanitarian has so far shared 14 Tweets since her first on October 23.
Stay safe and strong, Japan. Our thoughts and prayer are with the victims of #TyphoonLan.
— HRH Princess Haya (@hrhprincesshaya) October 23, 2017
Her first message offered condolences to Japan following Typhoon Lan, with Princess Haya sending her “thoughts and prayers” to the victims.
The royal has also posted about UN Day, Expo 2020 and the Rohingya refugee crisis, using her account to raise awareness for key issues.
HRH, who is the chairperson of Dubai’s International Humanitarian City, used her new account to celebrate the UAE government’s US$7 million (Dhs25.7 million) donation to the Rohingya crisis.
More than 600,000 Muslims have crossed into Bangladesh since August, after fleeing conflict in their native Myanmar.
This month HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Princess Haya have both called for world powers to step in to help the Rohingya people.
“Over the past week alone, more than 20,000 Rohingya have fled brutal persecution in Myanmar — their homes burned, many brutally beaten, family members murdered,” she wrote on Instagram, in a post Sheikh Mohammed then re-shared.
In September, the UAE royals sent a plane full of emergency supplies to Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh. The following week, Sheikh Mohammed dedicated his own private plane to humanitarian aid in the area.
“HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum generously created an open air bridge which continues to deliver humanitarian items to those who need it most,” the Princess continued. “But this is not enough! The UN and global powers must stop this ethnic cleansing now or thousands more will surely die in the weeks ahead. Each day they wait, more lives are lost.”
It’s a passionate cry, and one we hope will be heard.
