Princess Haya claims to have fled Dubai with her two children to hide in the UK 'in fear of her life' after becoming estranged from Sheik Mohammed.

Haya is daughter to King Hussein, who was succeeded on the throne in Amman by Abdullah II in 1999.

Princess Haya wed the 70-year-old sheik, who is also vice-president of the UAE, in 2004 in what was believed to be his sixth marriage. He has more than 20 children by different wives.

Haya is the daughter of Jordan's late Queen Alia, a popular figure with Palestinian roots who died in a helicopter crash in 1977.

The princess, who competed in equestrian events in the 2000 Olympics, and her brother Prince Ali are seen by many Jordanians as charismatic members of the Hashemite royal family.
