An Olympic horse rider and a trailblazer for women’s rights, Jordanian royal Princess Haya has long championed causes close to her heart including youth and education.
In a highly unusual move, the half-sister of Jordan’s King Abdullah II attended a London court Tuesday where she is locked in a legal battle with her husband the ruler of Dubai.
She applied for a UK forced marriage protection order relating to their children as well as requesting their wardship, in addition to calling for a non-molestation order relating to herself.
The court also heard that her husband Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, has applied to the High Court for the summary return of the children to Dubai.
