London: Princess Haya bint al-Hussein, the wife of Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum has applied for a “forced marriage protection order” in England’s High Court in relation to one of her two children, according to Reuters on Tuesday.
The 45-year-old is Jordanian daughter of late King Hussein and half-sister to King Abdullah.
“At the High Court of England and Wales, she also applied for wardship, which means a child is placed in the hands of the court for major decisions,” the news agency reported.

The couple had married in 2004.
