The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, colloquially known as MbS, secretly flew into Skiathos island yesterday afternoon, landing on the runway at Alexandros Papadiamantis Airport.

The Crown Prince, who has the second most important position in Saudi Arabia, second to his father, the King, arrived on a Lear Jet and was driven in a vehicle with blacked out windows to the old harbour of Skiathos, where the crew of “Tacanuyaso M S Yacht” were all lined up to greet the Royal.

The 34-year-old heir to the throne is also the deputy prime minister, chairman of the economic council, chairman of the security council and defense minister of Saudi Arabia.

MbS also controls part of the royal family’s vast wealth, which is estimated at up to 1.4 trillion dollars!

 

The Prince’s holiday to Skiathos is being kept under wraps but according to local publication he is on the northwest Aegean Sea on a family holiday and his yacht was also spotted heading towards Volos.
