Sheikh Rashid bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum - who was the eldest son of United Arab Emirates Vice President, Prime Minister and ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum - passed away one year ago today. Acknowledging his death, the Crown Prince of Dubai shared a picture collage video featuring himself and his sibling alongside the caption #rashid in Arabic.
