It looks as though The Only Way Is Essex's Mario Falcone and Lucy Mecklenburgh are highly regarded in Dubai following the news that the newly engaged couple have been invited to have tea with Dubai royalty.
The couple who jetted off before their engagement was announced on the TOWIE summer special, The Only Way Is Marbs, have appeared to make friends with the Al Maktoum dynasty after they revealed that they were fans of the show.
Speaking about Mario and Lucy's invite, a source revealed to The Sun:
"Lucy and Mario were there on holiday and received an invitation out of the blue from the young members of the ruling royal family to join them for afternoon tea.
“The couple were sent a limo to pick them up and were brought to a private room within one of Dubai’s top hotels.”
Whilst the couple have been resting up in Dubai, fans and their fellow TOWIE stars have been tweeting their congratulations. Sending her congratulations and love, Jessica Wright wrote: "Congratulations to my friends @lucy_meck and @Mario_Falcone on engagement lots of love x x x x”
