JETPACKS, SAFARIS AND FALCONS: The Ridiculous Life Of The Crown Prince Of Dubai

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, the 28-year-old crown prince of Dubai, leads a charmed life.
But that doesn't mean he's content to rest on his laurels. The Sheikh is the Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council and also heads the emirate's committees on sports and autism.

He's also got a ton of hobbies. Sheikh Hamdan is a noted poet who publishes under the name Fazza, and a competitive horseback rider who has won several awards, including a gold medal at the Asian Olympic games.
