His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nayhan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, has shared a series of rare family photos with his grandchildren.

The UAE leader took to Instagram to share a couple of photos from his Eid-Al-Fitr celebrations with his loved ones. His Highness also shared a special message to mark the occasion, calling the opportunity to spend time with loved ones one of the “greatest gifts”.

Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince shared two joy-filled photos with nine of his grandchildren with his 2.7 million followers.

“The opportunity to spend holidays and festive occasions with family, and especially with our children and grandchildren who remain an endless source of happiness and joy, is truly one of God’s greatest gifts and a cherished aspect of our culture and heritage,” he captioned the post.

The week prior to Eid Al Fitr, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed met with his “brother”, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to discuss the next 50 years of the UAE.

The Dubai Ruler and the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince looked to the future as they talked about the next 50 years of strategic development and mega projects in the UAE.

“We discussed a number of current issues and we talked about a group of upcoming projects of the homeland,” Sheikh Mohammed said. “Our country is developing rapidly and its future is good, noble and honourable.”
