Princess Haya bint al-Hussein, 45, the sister of King Abdullah of Jordan, returned to the family division of the High Court yesterday for a preliminary hearing before a full hearing next month. Her husband, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, 70, had applied for the children to be returned to Dubai.
The appointment of Princess Haya as a first secretary was announced in the London diplomatic list published by the Foreign Office. A former Olympic equestrian, she became the sheikh’s sixth and youngest wife in 2004.
