As Middle Eastern royalty and absolute eye candy, you might think that Dubai's Sheikh Hamdan would win the battle of most-watched Instagram Stories. Still, despite his love for posting all of his exciting adventures on the social media platform, two big personalities have beat him to the no.1 spot.
With her 22.9 million follows, Huda Beauty stakes the crown as the most-watch Instagram Stories producer in the UAE, with MBC host Joelle Mardinian (7 million followers) at no.2.
It could be down to the fact that with 5.9 million followers, the ladies are more exposed to people finding their Stories or even that they post more on the feature. It comes as the social media network looks at its figures from January 1 to November 17 and there's plenty more where that came from on the global scale.
Selena Gomez remain the most followed celebrity while Cristiano Ronaldo gained the most followers this year.
