The sixth wife of the ruler of Dubai, Princess Haya bint Hussein is now taking a massive step in somehow dragging the British royal family in her favor by shifting from the multi-million dollar ‘Palace Green’ house, overlooking Kensington Palace on a tree-lined private road known as Billionaires’ Row guarded by liveried gatekeepers to one of the palaces of the British queen. If Princess Haya succeeds in getting nods from the British royals, it will ultimately prove – Queen Elizabeth has set her support towards Haya ignoring the existing warm relations between the United Kingdom and UAE.
It is well-known that Queen Elizabeth has excellent relations both with Dubai-ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum and Princess Haya bint Hussein.
Her Majesty has, separately, enjoyed the company of both Sheikh Mohammed and Princess Haya in recent weeks.
Meanwhile, Sheikh Maktoum has made an application against his wife in the Family Court Division of the High Court to be heard on July 30. The case is set to be one of the most expensive and fiercely contested in history, with the couple employing Britain’s two best-known celebrity divorce lawyers to represent them.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum has hired Helen Ward, who handled Guy Ritchie’s split from Madonna, Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone’s from second wife Slavica and pop singer Cheryl Cole from footballer Ashley Cole. Princess Haya has hired Fiona Shackleton, whose clients have included Prince Charles in his divorce from Princess Diana and Prince Andrew in his split from the Duchess of York.
According to sources, Princess Haya bint Hussein is fearing being abducted by her husband’s men from the Palace Green. She even may abruptly try to move into Buckingham Palace through any excuse with the goal of taking refuge in one of Queen’s palaces. Some of her close aides and friends are already suggesting Princess Haya leave the Palace Green immediately.
According to British tabloid Mail, Princess Haya has had roots in Britain for years. Her father sent her to school first at Badminton and then at exclusive Bryanston in Dorset for her A-levels. She went on to Oxford where she read PPE at St Hilda’s College. After university she became an accomplished horsewoman, moving to Ireland where she was taught by the great Irish showjumper Paul Darragh. Invited to compete in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics she turned the offer down on the grounds that she was not ready.
Haya claims herself to be half-British
At the time the 5ft 2in Princess Haya said she had no time for romance because she was too busy training. She is half-sister to King Abdullah II of Jordan. Through his mother, born Antoinette Gardiner, he is half-British.
British newspaper Mail said, “Princess Haya’s close connections with Britain mean there is little likelihood of the authorities here forcing her to return to Dubai”.
It added, “Harrow and Sandhurst-educated King Hussein was always close to the Royals. In the late 1980s, he lent the Duke and Duchess of York his Surrey mansion while their £5 million marital home Sunninghill Park was being built”.
Haya extracted millions of dollars from the Dubai ruler
By emotionally blackmailing and even threatening of maligning the image of the UAE royal family, Princess Haya reportedly has extracted millions of dollars from her husband, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum.
Massive media campaign prior to July 30 hearing
At the advice of her friends and lawyer, Princess Haya bint Hussein reportedly is planning a multi-million-dollar media campaign prior to the July 30 hearing in the Family Court Division of the High Court. With this plan, the Princess has instructed her aides to immediately hire PR agencies for looking into the campaign issue.
Lots of security men outside the Palace Green
While there are rumors of Princess Haya’s sudden attempt of landing at the Buckingham Palace with the intention of seeking sanctuary in any of the Queen’s palaces, there is a presence of a car full of twitching security men right in front of the Palace Green.
