It’s not every day you get to meet a UAE royal…

HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan surprised staff and patrons at a popular restaurant in Abu Dhabi yesterday when he showed up unannounced.

The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi was quickly spotted by staff at one of the four Jones The Grocer outlets in the capital who were quick to snap a selfie with the royal, posting it to the restaurant’s official Instagram account.

While it isn’t immediately clear which Jones the Grocer the Sheikh visited, we did a little online sleuthing and discovered it was the outlet in the Al Mamoura he frequented.

And who can blame him? With a menu as tasty as what the Australian restaurant chain has to offer, we aren’t the least bit surprised he made a pit stop to grab a bite. Just take a look…
