Sheikh Hamdan + Maj = some of the sweetest snaps to ever grace the internet.
When it comes to having the greatest childhood best friend, not many can compete with Mohammed bin Ahmed Jaber Al Harbi.
The Emirati schoolboy doesn’t count his classmates or cousins as his best pal – that title goes to the Crown Prince of Dubai.
That’s right, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Mohammed – known as Maj – have shared a close bond for years, with both their social media feeds full of shots of the pair together.
Maj, the son of Sheikh Hamdan’s long-time friend Ahmed Jaber Al Harbi, has charmed the world ever since he surprised British monarch Queen Elizabeth II with a super-cute handshake back in 2015.
But no matter how many royals he meets, Sheikh Hamdan is still his “best friend”, according to Maj’s Instagram page (which is run by his parents and has more than 500,000 followers).
