Crown Prince Of Saudi Arabia Won't Attend The Funeral Of Queen Elizabeth II

LONDON - Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is no longer expected to attend Queen Elizabeth's funeral on Monday, a British foreign official source said on Sunday, contrary to Britain's earlier expectations that he would.

Saudi Arabia would be represented instead by Prince Turki bin Mohammed al Saud, the source said. Prince Turki is a minister of state and has been a number of the cabinet since 2018. He is the grandson of late King Fahd.

The change was made by Saudi Arabia, the source added.

Britain has invited heads of state from its allies to attend, but it is up to those nations who to send.
