According to PA. The judge allowed the media to report limited details of the case. In addition to the forced marriage, the princess also asked for the two children of the couple to be confined and a ban on themselves.
Sheikh Mohammed, who asked his children to return to Dubai, where he lives, was not present in court. CNN has asked its representative for comments.
The details of the protection order sought by Princess Haya are unknown. Under English law, a forced marriage protection order can be issued to protect a person from a forced marriage or to help a person already in forced marriage, for example by preventing the person from being taken abroad.
The Sheikh and the Princess made a statement earlier this month in which they were parties, according to the Press Association in the Family Division of the Supreme Court.
"are concerned about the welfare of the two children of their marriage and do not concern divorce nor finances," the statement said. The trial on Tuesday was subject to strong reporting restrictions, and CNN and other international media were not allowed in the courtroom.
However, an application by Sheikh Mohammed's lawyers for further reporting restrictions was rejected by the court. The family court's president, Sir Andrew McFarlane, said, "There is a public interest in public understanding of litigation, in the broadest sense," said PA.
Reports bustled around British media reported weeks after weeks of the collapsed royal marriage after the princess reportedly left her husband and traveled to London.
