GIBRALTAR has played host to royalty during a private visit by the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.

His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud arrived onboard his superyacht, Tueq, where he was officially greeted by Gibraltar Government representatives.

Prince Salman, who is next in line to the throne after King Abdullah, was treated to a tour of the Rock before enjoying lunch at the Rock Hotel.

The prince succeeded Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud following the latter’s death in June.
