The wait is finally over! After over a year’s engagement, Sheikha Maryam bint Rashid Al Maktoum has tied the knot with Sheikh Khaled Bin Mohammad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan on the 19th of September 2019. It was one of the much-awaited events of the quarter of the year.
Sheikh Khaled Bin Mohammad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan belongs to the royal family of Abu Dhabi. He is among the prominent graduates of the British Royal Academy Sandhurst in the UK. He was awarded the Major General Diwan Misri Chand Platoon Award for demonstrating outstanding innovation and purpose during the training course. This tells us that Sheikh Rashid’s daughter is married to a well-deserving and dignified person among the royals.
The news of their marriage spread like wildfire as the members of the royal family congratulated the couple on social media. One of the first to congratulate them was Sheikha Latifa. The other members of the royal family that congratulated the couple included Sheikha Mahra and Mama Noora.
The royal wedding took place in the Dubai World Trade Center. It was a lavish affair and was magnified in royalty with the presence of the Dubai king himself Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum who was seen in a jolly demeanor welcoming all the guests and taking pictures with children. HH Sheikh Hamdan also is known as Faaza, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council was also there along with some other UAE dignitaries. The crowd was dominated by the royals from the UAE and the Middle East.
From the décor to the food everything was traditional yet sober and mouthwatering. The Dubai royal family does know how to throw a lavish wedding and celebrate their happiness leaving the world in awe at their taste and fancy expenditures.
It’s not every day we see royals getting married but in the near future, we can expect quite some weddings in the royal family as back in 2016 Sheikha Latifa had announced her engagement to Sheikh Faisal Saud Khalid Al Qasimi who is part of the royal family of Ras Al Khaimah. Since there hasn’t been any news of the engagement breaking we can soon expect another royal wedding on the calendar of the Dubai royal family.
The wedding has served to be a good excuse for the Dubai royals to distract themselves from the upcoming case regarding the forced marriage protection of the children of The Sheikh and Princess Haya. The whole UAE is anxious to know what is to become of the case but the Sheikh showed no concerns regarding the case over the wedding instead he seemed one happy father celebrating the big day of his daughter.
