When Sheikh Mohammed met the Queen of England

Leisure

Sheikh Mohammed, the Ruler of Dubai, met Queen Elizabeth II at the Investec Derby Festival on Saturday.

Prince Hamdan and Princess Haya also met the Queen at the Epsom Downs Racecourse. The four leaders discussed ways to bolster ties between the UAE and the UK. After meeting the Queen, Sheikh Mohammed watched the Princess Elizabeth stakes.

The prestigious event is also known as 'the greatest flat race in the world'. It attracts the most high-profile names in horseracing, including Dubai's Godolphin. Godolphin’s horse 'Laugh Aloud', ridden by James Doyle, won the 1700 meter race.

She's not the Queen of England, she is the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

No-one has held the title of 'Queen of England' since 1707.
