His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, celebrates his birthday today, 15 July. The royal has been greeted online with hundreds of well wishes from his family, government institutions and members of the public. Born in 1949, in the Al Maktoum home in Shindagha near the Dubai Creek, His Highness turns 71 today. 

His daughter, Sheikha Latifa Bint Mohammed, took to Instagram to post a photo of Sheikh Mohammed as a child, along with the sweet caption - "Happiest Birthday to the best Dad anyone could ever wish for.”

Even his son, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, posted something special for his father on Twitter. 

The Crown Prince of Dubai's image of his father facing Burj Khalifa (ultimately Dubai's greatest landmark) is attached with the caption 'كل عام وأنت بخير.' The Dubai Media Office has even reposted that lovely image for Sheikh Mohammed's birthday. 

The public has been celebrating all morning, spreading the hashtag '#Sheikh_Mohammed_Bin_Rashid,' on UAE Twitter, for everyone to share their well wishes. And it's already trending!
