Dubai's Sheikh Hamdan Takes Picture of Vacation Couple

A Couple Asked Sheikh Hamdan to Take a Picture of Them and What Happened Next Will Surprise You

What would you do if you saw an actual prince while you were on vacation? Some might pluck up the courage to say hello and possibly ask for a picture, while others would understandably shy away from approaching a royal.

But a couple on a break in what appears to be Walter Peak, New Zealand had no problem asking Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai, for a snap to show them amongst the gorgeous scenery that surrounded them. And instead of asking one of his crew to do the job, it seems he happily obliged.

Admittedly, the pair probably had no idea who he was and it's possible the prince even offered to capture the duo on camera, still, his brother, Mansoor bin Mohammed, shared the moment the kind gesture took place on social media.

"Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give 💙 @faz3," he captioned the picture on Instagram, with many of his followers commenting on how lucky the couple was and how generous Sheikh Hamdan is.

He's been traveling a lot recently, sharing snaps and videos of himself in Colorado, USA. He hit the ski slopes in Aspen looking very bundled up compared to his usual look in the UAE.
