The leaders of the UAE are leading by example when it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing.

Yesterday, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, attended a royal wedding virtually.

Celebrating the marriage in the Al Nayhan family, Sheikh Mohammed, along with others, witnessed the happy occasion via video call.

Sharing some photos of himself witnessing the ceremony, His Highness shared his congratulations to the Al Nayhan family on Twitter.

“While virtually participating in the wedding reception hosted by Al Nahyan family,” he said. “Congratulations to Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed and Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifa. God bless them and bless the UAE people with happiness and joy.”

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, was also in attendance virtually alongside other leaders, which he shared photos of.

The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi sent his “warmest congratulations” to the married couple, Sheikh Mohammed bin Sultan bin Khalifa and Sheikha Fatima bint Tahnoun bin Zayed.

“I was pleased to communicate with the newlyweds and their family through video conferencing,” he said. “I wish them joy and good fortune.”

Noting the need for diligence amidst the pandemic, Sheikh Mohamed outlined the shared responsibility between everyone to follow guidelines.

“Protecting the UAE during these challenging times is a shared responsibility,” he said. “Following precautionary measures during our social events guarantees our safety as a society, and supports our country’s efforts in combating COVID-19.”
