She spent some years in Dubai, but I think she is now in Greece. Curiousely her existence as a Princess of Dubai seems not known in Greece, "press people" seems to ignore her up t o now, good for her. If you check FB & Pinterest, she looks a normal lovely young modern girl. Nevertheless I presume that she has not been grown up in UAE, apparently her arabic is basic. She grow up either in Greece or in UK, but I can not understand if her existence was known in UAE, and if she has always known her dad. I have the impression that she suddenly arrived in UAE and she spent a while there, maybe now she wishes to travel or to continue studying abroad, she is only 20yeasr old, after all.
I just found an article about Mahra (Xristianna) and he mum Zoe. Mrs Grigorakos comes from a family sadly well known in Greece. Her family was one of the strongerst families of "the night" world, I hope you all understand what I mean. Her father, her sister and two brothers were assasinated by the opposite "night" families, during their battle for the power and control of the "night".
Young Zoe wanted to escape to all this and she left Greece for UK, where she met Sheikh Mohammed, they were together (the article does not mention if they married) and they had a baby Christianna (now Sheikha Mahra). After some years in UK, mother and daughter moved to Greece were the little girl grow up. Her father has always took care of her, despite that he was always very busy. The young girl took horse riding lessons, and she was very very gifted.
The article is dated of 2010, and is saying that the last years mum and daughter live in Dubai, so this is the reason arabic is not very good.
As far as I know she is not actually in UAE, but she night be constantly travelling.
