This is the third photo of its kind to be published in three days.
Princess Latifa, the daughter of the ruler of Dubai, had not been seen in public since her unsuccessful attempt to flee the United Arab Emirates in 2018.
In secret video messages published to Sky News in February this year, the Dubai royal claimed her father was holding her hostage.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum has consistently denied these claims and said she is safe and healthy.
Calls were made for the sheikh to provide “proof of life” for his daughter after the tapes were released.
Sky News broke the news on Saturday than an image that seemed to present Princess Latifa had been posted on a public Instagram account.
It shows a woman who looks like the princess seated having a drink with two women in a Dubai mall and was uploaded on Thursday.
A date visible on an ad in the background and face masks on the table indicate that it was taken recently.
Sky News was unable to independently verify the photo, but understands it is considered legitimate.
Hours after the first image was posted, a second photo appeared online.
It shows Latifa at a restaurant in Dubai with one of the two women in the first photo.
The photo is captioned: “Great food in Bice Mare with Latifa earlier. “
The woman is Soned Taylor, a teacher in Dubai. Sky News understands that she is a longtime friend of Latifa’s.
This latest photo was posted by Fiona Day, who describes herself online as an intuitive consultant and psychic medium.
She regularly publishes articles online about animals and veganism.
It is understood that Princess Latifa is also passionate about animals, veganism and is interested in psychic healing.
The princess tried to escape her family in March 2018, trying to cross the Indian Ocean, but was brought back to Dubai in what the royal family called a rescue mission.
She had not been seen or heard in public until the start of the year, when she claimed she was a “hostage” in secret videos broadcast on Sky News.
In the videos, she claimed to have been beaten, drugged and imprisoned, locked in a royal villa and placed under armed guard.
The Sheikh had claimed that Latifa was taken to escape by criminals who wanted money and that bringing her back to Dubai was a rescue mission.
He insisted that she was safe and that the family wanted to keep her privacy.
