Princess Haya, a wife of the ruler of Dubai, is believed to have left the UAE for London, where she is fighting a legal battle in the High Court’s Family Division with the billionaire sheikh.

Princess Haya Bint al-Hussein, the British-educated and Jordanian-born sixth wife of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, is understood to be staying in her £85m townhouse in Kensington Palace Gardens.

It is not known exactly why she left, with the only clue a poem posted by billionaire Sheikh Mohammed, 69, on Instagram accusing an unidentified woman of “treachery and betrayal”.

The Family Division deals with matters relating to divorce and custody.
