It’s been revealed that shortly before her disappearance, Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein of Dubai was seen in close contact with her bodyguard, allegedly caught off-guard by her husband Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, ruler of Dubai.
According to the Daily Mail, Sheikh Mohammed returned unannounced to the couples $152 million mansion in London after a visit to the United Arab Emirates, to find the youngest of his six wives at the mansion with her British bodyguard.
People close to the family say he was shocked to find Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, 45, with the bodyguard and immediately demanded she return to Dubai with him, to which she refused sparking the most expensive divorce battle in UK history.
It’s understood that the billionaire was already suspicious of the relationship between the pair. With his suspicions allegedly confirmed, the Dubai ruler posted a cryptic poem about betrayal to his Instagram page shortly after.
Haya Bint Al Hussein is the youngest of the ruler’s six wives, and the mother of two of his children a daughter, 11 and a son, 7.
Haya Bint Al Hussein has reportedly fled Dubai after months of meticulous planning, and is reportedly seeking refuge in Germany – as she doesn’t trust UK authorities to keep her safe from her husband.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum – the vice president and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, and ruler of Dubai – has close ties with the British royal family including a close relationship with her majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
Haya Bint Al Hussein has reportedly enlisted the help of Fiona Shackleton, the same lawyer who dealt with the divorce of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, to resolve the divorce.
