Abu Dhabi's Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan showed the world what chivalry looks like this week.
On Monday, he visited the home of a young girl after discovering he had unintentionally disheartened her during the welcoming ceremony of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The young girl, Ayesha Al Mazrouei, was one of 12 school children chosen to greet MBS at the Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi on Nov. 27. A video of Ayesha went viral when people noticed how excited she looked to be there to shake hands with Sheikh Mohammed, and how heartbroken she was when he didn't notice her outstretched hand.
She can be seen running across the red carpet in her national dress, flag in hand, in an attempt to get a better spot and increase her chances of getting the handshake. Unfortunately, her efforts met a dead end.
To make up for it, Sheikh Mohammed visited Al Mazrouei and her family in their home, where he was greeted by the little girl, her little brother, and their father.
A video of his arrival shows him kissing her head and hand; as he greets her younger brother, she kisses his hand in return.
Sheikh Mohammed shared some time with the family and posed for photos with them outside their house.
Social media was overflowing with positive reactions and comments to what they saw in the photos and videos.
Sheikh Mohammed showed people what kindness looks like; his actions will teach future generations the value of goodwill and morality.
"You teach a lot of people in silence"
"You teach a lot of people in silence, and I'm one of them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such a great idol in the Arab world and especially in the GCC."
People were overwhelmed
"I didn't know if I should write about the little girl who changed her position just to be able to shake hands with Sheikh Mohammed, or write about a man with the importance of a whole nation but still took time off his busy day to make this girl happy."
Even Saudis showed love for the Emirati crown prince
"From heart to heart, thank you Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed."
