Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has been ordered to pay around £550m to his former wife and their two children in what is thought to be the largest award of its kind ordered by an English court.

Judge Philip Moor said most of the money awarded to Princess Haya bint al-Hussein, who is the half-sister of Jordan’s King Abdullah, is to protect against the “grave risk” posed to them by the sheikh himself.

Princess Haya, 47, originally fled the UAE for England in April 2019 with her two children, claiming she was “terrified” of her husband.

Later that year, the London court ruled Mohammed had carried out a campaign of threats and intimidation that made her feel unsafe, and that he had also previously abducted and mistreated two of his daughters from another marriage.

Judge Moor concluded this week: “She is not asking for an award for herself other than for security.”
