Video of Dubai ruler riding London Underground goes viral in UAE
Casually dressed in a white shirt and green trousers, Sheikh Mohammed was shown sitting down next to passengers on the tube train
UAE Vice President Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashed, who is also the ruler of Dubai, surprised passengers this Sunday when he was seen taking a trip on London’s metro with his son, Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan.
Casually dressed in a white shirt and green trousers, Sheikh Mohammed was shown sitting down next to passengers on the tube train. Sheikh Hamdan, commonly known by the affectionate nickname 'Fazza,' can be seen sporting a t-shirt.
A 17-second clip of his ride on the London Underground was uploaded to Twitter by UAE-based daily al-Roeya. A Twitter user commented in Arabic that the occasion showed the ruler’s “humility.”
Back home, Sheikh Mohammed is more frequently seen driving around his emirate in a luxury white Mercedes G-Class, and is sometimes known to pull over and chat with the city’s residents.
