UAE's third Apple Store opened in The Dubai Mall with fanfare earlier this month and among the more than a thousand fans who turned up for the official opening, a young Dubai royalty was also present for an exclusive tour.
His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, visited The Dubai Mall on April 27 with his entourage for an exclusive tour of the two-story mega store.
The store has a 185-foot curved glass facade, which is spread over two floors on the ground and first levels of the mall above the entrance from the Dubai Fountain and Souk Al Bahar.
The young royal is known to be a loyal Apple fan, and is often seen taking photographs with his iPhone - considered to have one of the best cameras on a smartphone.
Sheikh Hamdan met company and Store officials, who briefed him on the mega store as he walked around with his team.

While he posted this picture of him with the Apple team as an Instagram story...

Residents, who had gathered for the opening, also posted videos of the Crown Prince at the store, on social media:
