Dubai’s Princess Latifa spotted ‘alive’ in new photo months after friends raised alarm that she was being held against her will by her king father

Published on

Princess Latifa of Dubai appears to still be alive if new pictures released are to be believed.


New photographs uploaded to Instagram shows what looks to be Princess Latifa Al Maktoum,  daughter of Dubai ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who has allegedly been held captive for years against her will.


The snap shared by social media account “Shinny Bryn”, shows a photo of three women including a smiling Princess Latifa sitting around a table in public.

Keen observers also noticed that the photograph appears to have been flipped, based on the mirrored writing appearing on advertising in the background of the image.


The photo also shows face masks lying on the table, suggesting it could have been taken during the coronavirus pandemic period.


But Sky News reports say the picture is understood to be legitimate and is believed to have been taken in the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai.


The Instagram user wrote in a caption: “Lovely evening at MoE with friends” without naming or tagging Latifa.


Latifa’s disappearance from public life raised concerns over her welfare after it was claimed her father, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, was detaining her in solitary confinement claiming she was mentally unstable.


Her friends released secretly ­recorded disturbing video messages earlier this year showing Latifa claiming she had been held by her father’s people against her will since 2018 when she tried to flee across the Arabian Sea to go to the UK.

The 33-year-old princess had been captured by Navy commandos as she attempted escaping the UAE claiming she wasn’t free.


Her capture came after the abduction of her elder sister Princess Shamsa, 39.


In 2000, Shamsa fled from her family’s Longcross estate in a Range Rover.


But her escape attempt was foiled when she was grabbed off the streets of Cambridge and flown back to Dubai by private jet.


David Haigh, co-founder of the Free Latifa campaign and Detained International, told Sky news: “We confirm that there have been several potentially significant and positive developments in the campaign.


“We do not intend to comment further at this stage, a further statement will be issued at the appropriate time”.
