Heralding a new era

An invitation (albeit postponed, due to mourning) signals a new era for Dubai under our new ruler:

On behalf of:

His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum,
Dubai Crown Prince & UAE Defence Minister, and

Her Royal Highness Princess Haya Bint al Hussein, The Wife of
His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

This is the first time in the UAE that a media invitation has been jointly issued by a royal couple. It is possibly the first time it has ever happened in the Gulf. A royal wife - now the actual ruler's wife - has a proper public role. No more hiding away royal women behind veils and palace doors.

UAE women are increasingly out, educated and employed, and likewise their most senior figurehead.
