Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed enjoyed a flying visit by a feathered friend — and Twitter has been all a flutter as a result.

A fun video released on the official Twitter account of Sheikh Hamdan shows the Crown Prince of Dubai attending an event with his father, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, when a bird swoops in and lands on his head.

The cute guest didn't seem to ruffle the feathers of the pair — and Sheikh Hamdan was happy to get in on the fun by sharing the 38 second video with his 3.72 million followers.

The video has already made a big impression on his huge social media following.

Anil. N. Pillai tweeted "So awesome," in response to the humorous clip, with Antony Watson full of praise, remarking: "Tweet of the day, your Royal Highness".

Sheikh Hamdan has never been afraid to offer a personal insight into his life on social media. He has previously shared pics of him doing everything from sky diving and ice walking to standing proudly on top of the Burj Khalifa.

Now it looks like will be flying high on the internet yet again.
