Jordanian King Abdullah’s half-sister, Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein plotted to assassinate her husband, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
In May, when she was caught by the Dubai ruler with her British bodyguard-cum-lover, Princess Haya had reportedly told her lover that her returning to Dubai would be “disastrous” and the only way of getting out of the complication was assassinating Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. But it was her British lover who had suggested to refrain from such attempts as it would invite serious legal complications for her.
Following being exposed of having illicit affairs with the bodyguard, Princess Haya also made several phone calls to her half-brother, King Abdullah of Jordan requesting him to allow her to return to Jordan with two children and the British lover.
To her inner-circle and former college and university mates, Princess Haya reportedly were telling of having a “British boyfriend” and even was proudly pronouncing herself as his “fiancé”.
In the British soil, after the scandal of Charles-Diana affairs and the subsequent incidents of Diana’s having romantic relations with Dody Al Fayyad, the Haya-Brit bodyguard scandal is expected to produce high-drama.
Prince Haya’s prime goal now is to extract at least a couple of billions of dollars from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and begin a new life with her British boyfriend.
It is also learnt that, before marrying Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in 2004, Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein had dated at least 3 individuals during her college and university life.
