Rabat – A photograph that has been posted on social media shows the Emir of the State of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani wearing ‘dejellaba’, Morocco’s traditional outfit, in Ifrane.
The Qatari Emir appears surrounded by three young men in the Middle Atlas region during his eight-day visit to Ifrane, according to Goud news website.
The image depicting the simple style of the billionaire Middle Eastern leader has gone viral garnering thousands of likes and comments on social media networks.
According to the same source, Al Thani likes to visit Morocco’s Middle Atlas region as it is not the first time he is seen vacationing in Ifrane.
The Qatari Emir owns a private residence of ten hectares in the ski resort town, which, according to Goud, he acquired in January 2014.
Al Thani is spending the holidays in the mountainous region as a part of a low-key personal visit.
His last official visit to Morocco was in December 2013, when he was received by King Mohammed VI to discuss the strengthening of relations between Morocco and Qatar.
The picture stands as testimony to the level of security Morocco provides to its foreign visitors, analysts say. A ranking made public by the British Foreign Office last November, ranked Morocco among the safest countries in the world.
Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani was born June 3, 1980 in Doha, Qatar. The 35-year-old is the eighth Emir of Qatar and the youngest reigning monarch in the world.
According to U.S. Forbes magazine, the Qatari is the seventh richest monarch in the world.
