Tears turned to joy for an Emirati youngster who received a royal visit from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid after missing out on a National Day call from the Ruler of Dubai.

Footage of Salama Al Qahtani crying was shared on social media this week as she was upset that she didn’t receive a dispatch from Sheikh Mohammed.

On the eve of the 47th UAE National Day, many residents received a call from a number that appeared as '1971' that had a prerecorded message from the Ruler of Dubai.

However, Salama got more than just a call - Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid granted her a personal visit.

In the video, that went viral on Tuesday, Sheikh Mohammed told the youngster: “The others I have just called but I have seen you.

“So you can say, ‘I met him,’ now I came to see you and drink coffee at your home”.
