We wonder if they were aware it was Dubai’s Crown Prince behind the camera?

He’s a super-talented photographer who’s behind some of the most awe-inspiring snapshots of our picturesque city.

However HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is just as happy capturing a quick snap for the holiday album when requested.

It’s not known exactly when it was taken, but an image of the Crown Prince of Dubai happily taking a portrait for one lucky couple has us wishing the royal was behind our overseas snaps too.

Sheikh Hamdan took a photo for the pair at New Zealand’s Walter Peak, with the moment captured by his brother, HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed al Maktoum.

“Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give,” Sheikh Mansoor captioned the image, taken in the popular South Island adventure spot of Queenstown.

It’s not known if the couple knew who their friendly photographer was at the time, but as this image quickly garners likes (17,000 and counting…) they might soon be alerted to their royal connection.

We wonder if he’s helped any families out on the slopes with a quick selfie? We bet he was only too happy to oblige.
