Condolences to the family. May he rest in peace. His Majesty made the long trip to Brisbane, Australia for the World Leaders G20 Summit November 15th. January the 1st he was admitted to hospital. So I guess the Crown Prince Salman acted as regent for his brother then. Crown Prince Salman is 80 yrs old.

There is no such ceremony in Saudi Arabia. King Salman officially succeeded his late brother as king & prince Muqrin became crown prince. People will pay support, respect & condolences to the new king & crown prince in a special ceremony to be held today night following the funeral.

The death of King Abdullah now also makes Queen Elizabeth II the oldest Monarch in the world.

Death of King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud : January 23, 2015

May the human rights record improve with new leadership.

Edited to add: that's actually not fair. He did make important reforms- just not nearly enough in my opinion, but this is the wrong place/time to talk about that.

I would have just deleted my original post but couldn't from my phone.

Prince Charles set to attend King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia's funeral - Telegraph
Quote:
The Prince of Wales is expected to attend the funeral of King Abdullah in Saudi Arabia later on Friday.

Clarence House officials are understood to be urgently working on transport arrangements to get the Prince to Riyadh in time for the ceremony.

The Prince has been a regular visitor to Saudi Arabia over the years and counted the king as a personal friend.

If he attends the funeral, he will be doing so as the representative of the Queen, who no longer makes long distance trips overseas.

Sources said it was "likely" the Prince would attend the service if a scheduled or Royal flight aircraft can get him there in time

All recent articles have mentioned he is 90 years old. It is said his brother Salman is 79 years old. Wikipedia is not always a reliable source.
