On Thursday May 16, news broke that three of Sheikh Mohammed’s sons; H.H Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Sheikh Ahmad bin Mohammed, Chairman of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge foundation, had married in a private ceremony on Wednesday night.

The Crown Prince of Dubai wed Sheikha Sheikha bint Saeed bin Thani Al Maktoum, Sheikh Maktoum married Sheikha Mariam bint Butti Al Maktoum, and Sheikh Ahmad married Sheikha Midya bint Dalmouj Al Maktoum.

While the Islamic wedding took place on Wednesday of last week, it is expected that the wedding ceremony will follow. Currently, it’s unclear whether this will be a public or private celebration.

Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince, H.H. Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed took to social media over the weekend to congratulate Sheikh Mohammed on his sons’ wedding, calling the occasion ‘a great joy throughout the country’. “I bless my three sons and wish them a long time of success, joy and overwhelming family happiness,” Sheikh Mohamed concluded the Tweet.
