Who doesn’t love a good birthday bash?

Yesterday saw the son of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, turn five.

The photos posted on HRH Princess Haya’s Instagram from Zayed bin Mohammed’s fifth birthday are super cute. The main photo shows him alongside a couple of his friends as they cut into a Nissan Patrol birthday cake.

The caption on the photos by Princess Haya reads, “To our beloved Zayed bin Mohammed… Today we celebrate your 5th birthday, and as you grow more and more every day, we see how much your character has begun to take shape.

“We are proud of your determination to walk in the footsteps of your dear father Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. We wish you a very happy and a blessed life.”

There’s no doubt that Sheikh Mohammed and Princess Haya offer up some serious family goals.

The duo even do the school run, telling The Kris Fade Show, “We’re up around 6.15 to 6.30am, the kids are up and ready to go to school. We have breakfast together when we can and either myself or His Highness try to do the school run.”

They even pop school to say hello occasionally. Here’s Sheikh Mohammed dropping into their daughter Al Jalila’s Kings’ School Dubai in celebration of World Teacher’s Day.
