After giving a radio interview in January defending Mrs Robinson's intervention, Haya began asking "awkward" questions about Latifa, her early life and her recent return to Dubai.

The Times of London reported Monday that she was living with the couple's two children, Sheikh Zayed and Sheikha Al Jalila, in a mansion near Kensington Palace worth about $107 million.

The princess made an alleged attempt to escape from her family and was not seen for months until she was recaptured off the coast of India in March of a year ago.

Maktoum has launched an unprecedented legal action against Haya in the Family Division of the High Court.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's took to Twitter to make the announcementTranslates to: "We are now starting to evaluate the services of 600 government service centers".

These results will then go on to get published by September 14, 2019 and the public will then be able to review the ranks of these government offices from the worst to the best.

It follows the departure from Dubai of one of her husband's daughters a year ago. She knows Sheikh Mohammed, 69, extremely well. They were recaptured by Emirati forces and are said by advocates to be held in Dubai against their will.

She is the daughter of the former King of Jordan and half-sister to King Abdullah, as well as an Olympic athlete with a passion for horses who first represented her country age 13. Through his mother, born Antoinette Gardiner, he is half-British.

In 2018 his daughter, Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum, made headlines when she attempted to flee the UAE for India.

It added, "Harrow and Sandhurst-educated King Hussein was always close to the Royals".

Rifts in the Gulf royal household circulated last week when Princess Haya - the wife of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum - launched a case at London's High Court in a bid to secure asylum after apparently fleeing her home country in fear of her life.

The UK, a trading partner and ally of both the UAE and Jordan, will face a headache in deciding whether to offer Princess Haya asylum or allow her deportation.

The ruler has rebuked the Princess' move accusing her of "betrayal" and pointing out he was ready to dump her to whoever he will come across.

While there are rumors of Princess Haya's sudden attempt of landing at the Buckingham Palace with the intention of seeking sanctuary in any of the Queen's palaces, there is a presence of a auto full of twitching security men right in front of the Palace Green.
