Spotted: new sighting of Dubai ruler’s daughter



The daughter of Dubai’s ruler, Princess Latifa, has been spotted in Madrid after reports earlier in the year that she was being held captive by her father.

In an image posted on the public Instagram account of one of the Princesses’ close friends, both women are seen wearing masks in Madrid’s main airport.

The photo’s caption reads “Great European holiday with Latifa… we’re having fun exploring”.

In February, the BBC released the footage that you are viewing now, showing Princess Latifa saying that she was in captivity and fearing for her life.

A photograph posted last month on two public Instagram accounts purports to show Princess Latifa, the daughter of the ruler of Dubai, who has not been seen or heard from in months prior.

The footage was enough to have the United Nations demand “concrete evidence” that she was still alive and she should be released “urgently”.

After these reports surfaced, Dubai released a statement saying that she was being cared for at home and “we are hopeful she will return to public life at the appropriate time.”

David Haigh is the co-founder of the Free Latifa campaign and says he is “pleased to see Latifa seemingly having a passport, travelling and enjoying an increasing degree of freedom”.

Haigh added that the princess has contacted his team directly but he cannot comment further at this stage.

Franchising vs. Independent: key differences to choosing the right SMB model

Franchising provides brand recognition, operational support, and economies of scale but involves ongoing fees.
