Princess Haya, the wife of Dubai Emir Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, has fled to Visit Business Insider ' s homepage for more stories. Princess Haya, the wife of Dubai Emir Sheikh Mohammed She has not been heard from since, and activists fear she has been jailed indefinitely.

Essabri’s astonishing interview comes just weeks after Princess Haya, the wife of the ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed, fled to the UK with her two young children - now based in London where she has applied for political asylum.

Princess Haya is the third princess to attempt escape from Dubai’s royal family, leaving behind the confines of the mysterious palace walls and the shadow of Sheikh Mohammed - one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the world.

Royal insider fears for Dubai's princesses Up until three weeks ago, Her Royal Highness, Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein seemed to be living a glamourous and exciting life. But now the 45-year-old princess – along with her two young children – has fled to London, apparently trying to escape her husband: the powerful, billionaire ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Last year one of Sheikh Mohammed’s daughters, Princess Latifa, also tried to escape from Dubai, but failed. In an exclusive interview with 60 Minutes, a former palace insider explains the complicated and captivating machinations of this privileged – and troubled – royal family.

Last year, Princess Latifa, the 33-year-old daughter of Sheikh Mohammed, attempted her escape from Dubai, risking her life to flee the palace under the cover of darkness.

Fears of no-deal Brexit hit the pound as storming jobs figures can't stop it falling to lowest level against the dollar in more than two years

Fears of no-deal Brexit hit the pound as storming jobs figures can't stop it falling to lowest level against the dollar in more than two years Sterling hit a 27-month low of $1.2409 at one point this morning, despite upbeat official jobs figures showing wages grew at their fastest pace in more than a decade in the quarter to May. But the pound took little notice of the jobs data. It reacted instead to comments by Tory leadership contenders Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson, who last night both said the Irish backstop - which would prevent a hard border - will be axed from the deal. If the winner, which will be announced next week, sticks to that pledge, chances of the UK leaving with a deal are almost non-existent as the EU is likely to reject such a compromise.

Princess Haya Bint al-Hussein, a wife of the ruler of Dubai , Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum, has left her husband - a highly unusual move for a senior royal in the UAE. The princess is now said to be hiding in a townhouse in central London. She was conspicuously absent from Royal Ascot this year

But just days after she was smuggled out of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the boot of a friends car, as she was on her way to India to start her new life, the boat she was travelling in was raided by commandos from the UAE.

It is alleged they dragged Princess Latifa at gunpoint off the boat and forced her to return to Dubai against her will.

Essabri believes Princess Latifa and Princess Shamsa – who also made a failed escape attempt more than 18 years ago – are both being mistreated and unable to leave Dubai.

He is speaking out in the hopes their situation gains international attention and his cousins can once again experience freedom.

“Somebody's taken her life away from her,” he said of Princess Latifa’s capture.

“The opportunities of her life… it's like you are living, but you have no right to live.”

Essabri has joined the fight for Princess Latifa’s freedom, speaking for the first time about the restricted life women in the royal family live inside the palace.

Essabri identifies as a transgender male – having transitioned to life as a man ten years ago.

He has a unique understanding of what life is like for women in Dubai’s royal family, as during the years he lived in the palace he went by ‘Fatima’.

“If I had stayed there, if I had been kept there, I don't think I could have survived,” he told Steinfort.

“Because I don't fit in. I don't tick their boxes.”

He has spent decades living the UK and Europe, and hopes for his beloved cousins to experience the same freedom he has enjoyed since leaving Dubai’s palace himself.

“My aim, my hope, my dream is that I can hug them, see them, make sure that they are all right,” he said.
