There is no cover up. The prince is being held & will be charged, the Saudi embassy said that they will not interfer in it.

No he isnt.
He is a very very far distance to the king. The only reason the embassy will not interfer and the reason he isnt getting diplomatic immunity is that they said he is a minor saudi prince.

Saud Bin Abdulaziz Bin Nasir Bin Abdulaziz al Saud

prince nasser is king abdullah's brother , not the same mother of course .

I think what they mean by minor , is that he is not the son or grandson of the king or the crown prince sultan.

I don't think it's important how close to the king he is the most important he is in police custody that the laws will be followed then we will see if he is guilty or not and that is the justice work.

In a perfect world justice "should be meted out objectively, without fear or favor, regardless of identity, money, power, or weakness" (wikipedia). In a real world personal wealth of the individual in question could be viewed as the single most important factor in such cases. The Prince in question can obviously afford to hire a top criminal barrister, who will try to find mitigating circumstances for his client's behaviour. It is a usual course of things.

"Saudi Arabia's Royal Revolution"
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is in the throes of a revolution, potentially of profound significance for both the country and the region. The leader of the revolution is none other than King Abdallah bin Abdulaziz, the 86-year-old monarch who has ruled the Kingdom for 14 years -- nine as Regent (after his half-brother King Fahd suffered a major stroke) and five as King.

For a revolutionary leader, the King’s manner tends to be low-key. There are no bombastic speeches. Those who know him speak of his modesty and simplicity. But, with remarkable political skill and utter resolve, he has set in train radical changes in the country’s internal and external policies which are nothing short of revolutionary.

Villagers in battle with Saudi prince over footpath

A group of residents are squaring up to a Saudi prince over plans to close an historic footpath in their village.
Shipbourne is facing up to the might of Saudi Arabia's royal family as the two factions battle over whether a path popular with walkers is allowed to be diverted.
The row, which has been bubbling for more than six months, centres on the Greensand Way designated path MR392, which runs behind St Giles' Church.
Many walkers use the route, which dates from Roman times, to go from the village to Ightham Mote, to watch the cricket team or simply for pleasure.
But part of it runs through the Fairlawne Estate, owned by Saudi Prince Khalid Abdullah, who wants to divert it to protect sheep from dogs and increase security.

Controversy around the photo of King Abdullah and Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz

Saudi newspapers ran front page pictures today of King Abdullah and Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz in a crowd of women with their faces bared, adding fuel to the growing fight over mixing in the kingdom.
The undated photograph showed the kingdom's two most powerful men together with more than three dozen smiling women at a seminar on health and the community in the southwestern city of Najran held several weeks ago.
The photograph was published in several leading newspapers including Okaz, Ashahrq al-Awsat and Al-Watan, each with a close link to senior members of the ruling royal family.
No reason was given for why the picture was published only now; accompanying text gave a routine description of the theme of the conference. - AFP

Perhaps, to open a window and let some fresh air in. The King seems to be a man who thinks. He, also, seems to be a man of good intent and is looking to open closed dorrs to women in his nation. Bless him.
