Jordanian Princess Khaya bint al-Hussein cheated on her husband for two years with her British security guard, 37-year-old Russell Flowers. To escape the Sheikh’s wrath, she had to flee the country, the Daily Mail reported.
In 2004, Princess Khaya, then 30, married the billionaire and Emir of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum. The 33-year-old Flowers, formerly in the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment, became her security guard in 2016.
Their romance began in the same year. The Princess sprinkled Flowers expensive gifts: among other things, he received from her wristwatch worth 12 thousand pounds (1.2 million rubles), an antique rifle for 50 thousand pounds (5 million rubles) and a ring with a seal and ruby, embedded in the engraved on it a coat of arms of the Flowers family.
Flowers’ wife since late 2016 suspected her husband of treason. She noticed that the princess sends him her photos, including a swimsuit. In addition, Flowers has updated his closet, began to watch himself and engage with a personal coach. Another evidence was a pack of condoms, which his wife found in his bag.
In the summer of 2017, Flowers and his wife parted. During the divorce process, it turned out that he spent 16 thousand pounds (1.6 million rubles) from his credit card on gifts to the princess. Among other things, the guard bought Haya expensive Louboutin shoes.
Meanwhile, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum also suspected his wife of infidelity. Princess Haiyah became fearful for her life and fled to London with her two children. The British High Court took her side. Now she lives in London in a mansion worth 85 million pounds sterling (8.6 billion rubles).
Previously, Princess Haya claimed that the reason for fleeing was the intention of Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum to give their 11-year-old daughter Jalilya to marry Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia.
In 2018 it was reported that the daughter of Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, Sheikh Latif, tried to escape from Dubai with the help of a former French military intelligence agent, Hervé Gaubert, but she was captured and has since been held in captivity. The escape has undertaken in 2000 by her older sister also ended.
