Now we’re wondering if he checks his DM requests…
If this was us, you wouldn’t be able to shut us up about it for years. People would introduce us at parties by warning their friends we were going to tell the story, it’d be the fun fact we’d use in every icebreaker game. We’d practically put it on our business cards.
As it stands, we’re just writing about it. That’ll have to do.
HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, went over to a local woman’s house for lunch after she invited him on social media.
Habiba Bin Thaleth, an Emirati woman who Gulf News reports works as a cultural advisor at Dubai’s Knowledge and Human Development authority, wrote to Sheikh Hamdan on social media asking him to come round for a meal.
“Done!” came his reply, the site reports, and so it came pass.
There are a couple of clips of the meal floating around. It looks like quite a spread, and Sheikh Hamdan was joined by his best friend, young Maj, and Uncle Saeed.
Room for a couple more?
Outstanding. We’d love to know what the conversation covered. Photography, wildlife, cave-diving, travel… Sheikh Hamdan’s interests are pretty wide-ranging.
Anyone else thinking of that classic question of what noteworthy people, living or dead, you’d invite to dinner? We’re thinking this woman has her answer covered better than most.
