One&Only Royal Mirage launches exhibition marking the Year
of Zayed

“The Union is my wish and the highest goal I seek for the people of the Emirates”
Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, June 2018 - In tribute to the Year of Zayed, One&Only Royal Mirage has launched an exhibition of archived photographs documenting key moments in the life of His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Offering rarely-seen glimpses into his visionary leadership, from environmental conservation to forming Dubai’s development plan, it tells the story of His Highness as the driving force behind the formation of the United Arab Emirates.

As 2018 marks 100 years since the birth of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, One&Only Royal Mirage has carefully selected a series of 69 images depicting the ruler and Father of the Nation. Curated around themes based on visionary quotes from His Highness, highlights of the exhibit include memorable moments he shared with world leaders, from the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum to Queen Elizabeth II, and a shot of His Highness watering a date palm taken in 1981, a reminder of his passion for protecting the environment.

The exhibition takes place at the Grand Gallery located at the Arabian Court One&Only Royal Mirage. Running from June until the end of the year, entrance is complimentary for both One&Only Royal Mirage guests and visitors.
