Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum is on holiday in London with his family and friends. He has shared snippets from there on his official Instagram handle to his 14.5 million followers. These posts are going viral, and one of them shows the Crown Prince where you’d rarely expect a royal – the London Underground. Like the Underground, the rapid transport system serves Greater London and some parts of England’s neighboring counties of Buckinghamshire, Essex and Hertfordshire.
In the now viral photo, Sheikh Hamdan is seen with his friend in the middle of a crowded London Tube compartment. The National identified his friend as Badr Ateej and both are not recognized by the train’s passengers.
“We still have a long way to go and Badr is already bored,” said the Crown Prince of Dubai in the caption of the post shared nearly a week ago.
In another photo, the ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum also went on vacation in London with Sheikh Hamdan. The crown prince shared a photo with his father and his two children on his Instagram handle.
He may have gone unnoticed now, but last month a video went viral in which Sheikh Hamdan took selfies with residents of Dubai in London who saw him in his car.
The video was posted by Ahmad Jaber Al Harbi, a friend and regular traveling companion of the Crown Prince, and was captioned: “When a resident of Dubai saw @faz3 in #London”.
The Crown Prince of Dubai is popularly known as Fazza.
