Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan and US president Donald Trump’s two eldest sons, Eric and Donald Jnr, attended the wedding of Damac Properties founder and chairman Hussain Sajwani’s daughter over the weekend.

The bride, Amira Sajwani, is also Damac’s chief financial officer.

On Friday, Hussain Sajwani posted a picture of himself standing alongside Sheikh Hamdan, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, along with other royal family members and dignitaries.

He also posted a pictured alongside Eric and Donald Jnr, whom he referred to “dear friends and business partners.”

Other members of the Sajwani family also posted pictures of the two Trump brothers on social media. Eric’s wife, television producer and anchor Lara Trump, also posted a picture of herself at the wedding on her Instagram account.

Eric, for his part, tweeted two pictures of himself and Donald Jnr at the Trump International Golf Club in Damac Hills on Thursday, but made no mention of attending the Sajwani wedding.

In February 2017, Eric and Donald Jnr attended the opening of the golf club, where Eric praised the close ties between Sajwani and the Trump family and the Trump Organization.

“It’s not every day I have a partner that’s truly a great friend,” Eric said at the event. “Thank you so much for your love and friendship.”

In January 2017, President Trump said he turned down $2 billion to do a deal in Dubai with Damac, which he highlighted as a sign of his commitment to avoid conflict of interests while serving as president at the White House. Damac later confirmed that discussions had taken place.

A second Trump-branded Trump golf course – this one designed by Tiger Woods – is currently under construction at Damac’s Akoya Oxygen property.
