On Monday, Saudi Arabia was gearing up for the funeral of Prince Bander, the elder brother of the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad-bin Salman at the Royal Court. 

Prince Bander has died at the age of 96-years. 

In a brief statement by the official sources of Saudi, the Royal Court informed that “His Royal Highness Prince Bandar bin Abdulaziz al-Saud passed away.”

It continued, “A funeral prayer will be performed for his soul… on Monday… at the Grand Mosque in Mecca.”

Prince Bandar was the eldest surviving son of King Abdulaziz, the founding Monarch of Saudi Arabia. 

However, the Royal Court didn’t detailed that cause of his death at the age of 96, but some local media leakage that he had been ill for several decades. 

Prince Bandar was not an active member in the politics of the royal Al-Saud family that counts thousands of members, in which only a few flourish direct influence over the kingdom.

However, his sons hold key government positions. Prince Faisal-bin Bandar is the Governor of Riyadh and Prince Abdullah-bin Bandar is the head of Saudi National Guard.  

Prince Bandar comes as King Salman’s son, Crown Prince Mohammed-bin Salman has sidelined his cousin as successor to the throne – combines his hold on power.
