Since the birth of his twins, HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed has proved to be a doting father, often taking to Instagram to post precious moments of his time with his son and daughter. Now, on their first birthday, the Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai has shared a heartwarming picture taken on the day of their birth, which also shows their faces for the first time.
The photo sees a smiling Sheikh Hamdan holding his newborns, one in each arm, and dressed in all white. “Feels like just yesterday this picture was taken. It’s been one year today,” wrote the royal. “Happy birthday Rashid & Shaikha, and to all the children of the world.”
Previous photos shared by Sheikh Hamdan show him spending his time outdoors and sharing his love for animals, especially horses, with his children. While one post sees the children hanging out with their father and looking at giraffes, another saw them gently reaching out to horses. “Training and education should start early on,” the Crown Prince had captioned a photo taken with their Godolphin steed. “Rashid and Shaikha came to see Adayar & wish him the best!”
