Eid Al Fitr is a time to celebrate as a family, which is exactly what the Dubai royal family has been doing this week.

Today, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, the Crown Prince of Dubai, has taken his followers inside the family celebrations, sharing a photo of his father, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, with a group of grandchildren on his Instagram, with the simple caption, "Family".

Sheikh Hamdan also posted this video to mark the celebration (click to play).

It was not just the Dubai Crown Prince who shared photos.

Other family members posted photos, including Sheikha Maryam bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who shared an adorable photo of a young royal hugging the Dubai ruler.

Her sibling, Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, shared more family photos and videos from inside the celebration. Sheikha Latifa is married to Sheikh Faisal Saud bin Khalid H Al Qassimi, from the Ras Al Khaimah royal family.

Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, President of the Dubai Women Establishment, captioned this video of Sheikh Mohammed being fed by a young member: "Everyone loves him, from the youngest to the oldest."
