The Crown Prince of Dubai recently met two adorable schoolchildren – who were featured in a video that has gone viral and won hearts and minds.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum spoke to the two young boys, who were later identified as six-year-old Mansoor Al Chowk and five-year-old Abdullah Millan.
In a video shared by Dubai Post, Sheikh Hamdan can be seen sharing a relaxing moment with the pair, who appear to be very excited to sit next to the Emirate’s crown prince.
But who are these boys? Why is Sheikh Hamdan calling them?
Primary school pupils were honored for their extraordinary gesture of showing their love and respect for this country.
In an earlier video taken by their school’s director – which was also shared by Dubai Post – Mansour and Abdullah were seen standing in the heat as the UAE national anthem was played.
They appear to lug their school bags on foot to school as the national anthem plays Ishi Biradi Start playing. Instead of running to the gate, they stood in the sun to show respect.
Curious about their commitment, Sheikh Hamdan asked: “Where did you hear that?” The children simply replied: “At school.”
Expressing his gratitude, the Crown Prince of Dubai told the young heroes: “Now, all Emiratis thank you for standing for the national anthem.”
With love and admiration pouring in from all directions, Mansour and Abdullah have become shining examples of the Emirati spirit.
