Sheikha Maryam bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, daughter of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, wedded recently, according to posts from royal social media accounts.

On Friday morning, Dubai royal family members took to social media and congratulated the princess on her marriage to Sheikh Khaled bin Mohammed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan.

Sheikha Maryam's sister, Sheikha Latifa ‎‏Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, shared a story on her official Instagram page early on Friday offering her well-wishes to the newly-married couple.

The pair’s engagement was first announced on social media on August 24, 2018.

At that time, several family and friends close to Sheikha Maryam celebrated the news by posting it on their various social media accounts.

Sheikh Khaled is a member of the Abu Dhabi royal family. He graduated from British Royal Academy Sandhurst in the UK and was awarded the Major General Diwan Misri Chand Platoon Award for demonstrating outstanding innovation and purpose during the training course.

In early June, a huge celebration was held in Dubai World Trade Centre to celebrate the marriages of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, the Crown Prince of Dubai, and his brothers to their respective brides. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai attended the ceremony as vast crowds gathered outside the venue to celebrate the occasion.
