The ‘Sleeping Prince’ Moved Home
Saudi Prince Khalid bin Talal Al Saud has decided recently to transfer his ill son, Prince Al Waleed bin Khaled, home after spending ten years receiving treatment at a specialist hospital in Riyadh.
Prince Al Waleed, who is the eldest son of Prince Khalid, suffered traumatic injury following a traffic accident, causing him to be in a coma for a decade. His mother is Princess Jazzi, the daughter of the late King Saud bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia.
The Prince is known in the Arab press as the “Sleeping Prince”, referring to his medical condition. Since the tragic accident, he has been lying in hospital under the help of life support machines surrounded by the love and care of his family.
Although doctors said the young Prince is suffering from a rare medical condition of brain death, his parents have refused to stop the life supportare hoping and praying for their beloved son to recover soon.
