David Haigh, co-founder of the Free Latifa campaign and Detained International, told Sky: “We confirm that there have been several potentially significant and positive developments in the campaign.

“We do not intend to comment further at this stage, a further statement will be issued at the appropriate time”.

Latifa’s disappearance from public life has raised concerns over her welfare after it was claimed her father, Leader Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, was detaining her in solitary confinement.

Pals released secretly ­recorded video messages earlier this year showing Latifa claiming she had been held against her will since 2018.

The 33-year-old princess had been captured as she tried to flee across the Arabian Sea.

It is alleged commandos snatched Latifa and brought her back to her father in Dubai.

Her capture follows the abduction of her sister Princess Shamsa, 39.
