After the third photograph of Emirati royal Princess Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum appeared o Instagram. the UK government has been urged to intervene to find out whether she has been genuinely freed from house arrest by her father.

Former British Foreign Office Minister Peter Hain says the British ministers must stop dragging their feet over Princess Latifa and demand proper proof of her life and her freedom.

Mr. Hain questioned why she was not able to speak to journalists directly and urged the government to demand proper proof of life after third image appears on Instagram within days

The Princess has not been seen in public since a failed attempt to flee Dubai in March 2018.

Are the posts a part of a gradual process that will lead to her full release? or is it a PR stunt designed to convince the public her freedom has been at least partially restored?
