In a matter of hours, a video of a Dubai royal flying an Emirates aircraft has taken the internet by storm. 

The Instagram video shows Sheikha Mozah Al Maktoum - a member of Dubai's ruling family - giving passengers an update on the flight's status en route to Italy.

"Good morning ladies and gentlemen, this is first officer Mozah Al Maktoum speaking," she said. 

"We are currently cruising at an altitude of 35,000 feet and will be descending to Milan airport shortly."

The video, posted by Sheikha Shamsa Al Maktoum, received over 73,000 views at the time of writing.

In February 2017, Sheikha Mozah became the first royal from the Al Maktoum family to fly a commercial plane.

She has passed the commercial test in April 2016 but officially flew an assisted Emirates plane in 2017.
