The three royals are now “technically” married, having signed a contract with their respective brides before a judge, as is the custom in traditional Emarati marriages.

That being said, we can all look forward to a more elaborate ceremony, although the weddings of ruling families are usually kept private and not celebrated on public media. Still, this doesn’t stop the people of Dubai and the entire UAE from extending their greetings!
