Princess Haya of Jordan talks about horses...

... but not about being the junior wife of Sheikh Mohammed, the head of state of Dubai. The princess, whose horse won the Derby, is profiled in Sunday's London Times.

She talks about horses and Sheikh Mo and their daughter, Jalila, but nothing about being the Sheik's junior wife. He is not divorced from his first wife, Sheikha Hind, who is never seen in public. Hind married Mo -- a first cousin marriage -- in 1980. They have fourteen children. She is involved in several charities but is not seen publicly.

Sheikh Mohammed also has two children by another women, believed to a former wife
