His son, Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, was also with him on the journey along with entourage.

Despite being worth an estimated £10billion they decided to take the cheap option, ditching their million pound fleet of cars and opting to use the tube.

They also swapped their usual white robes for T-shirts and jeans so other commuters would not regognise them.

He gave away £10billion of his wealth in 2007 to set up the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation, which aims to help future generations develop sustainable solutions in the Arab world.

One commuter who spotted the Billionaires jokingly said: ‘I asked them for £1 million pounds so I could buy a house and they started laughing but it’s always worth a try.’

After the Sheikhs son tweeted the pictures they were inundated with comments from people asking them to lend them money and many from football fans asking them to buy their club.

Others took shots at the sheikhs saying: ‘some people are so poor all they have is money.’

The Sheikhs also boast one of the largest UK property empires worth an estimated £75 million.
