(CNN)|AIWA! NO!|The United Arab Emirates has released pictures of a daughter of Dubai’s billionaire ruler, who hadn’t been seen publicly since she attempted to flee abroad earlier this year.

Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed Al Maktoum was last seen in March onboard a yacht off the coast of India before a raid by Indian and Emirati forces took her back to Dubai, according to two people who had helped plan her escape.

In three low-resolution photos dated December 15, 2018, and released by the UAE’s foreign ministry on Monday, the princess appears alongside Mary Robinson, the former Irish President and former UN Human Rights Commissioner.

Dressed in a dark hooded sweatshirt and gray jeans, Sheikha Latifa — the daughter of UAE Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum — either looks away from the camera or towards Robinson.
