Silly question. Why is his half brother now king? What about his own blood?

They have a different system.


Half-brothers there are from the same father who can have multiple wives as well.


In the western European countries succession tends to be generational but in some Arab countries it goes down the brothers before changing to the next generation.


In countries like the UK, if the half-brother has the right royal line then they could also inherit e.g. William and Kate divorce and William remarries - any subsequent children would also be in the line of succession behind George and the new baby but ahead of any of Harry's children.

How does the succession work in Saudi Arabia? I've never really followed them before but I'm curious as to why they don't seem to have a father to son succession.

It's a brother succession brother line but a new move has been made by the King appointing his nephew as the deputy crown prince.

I was not aware that the King had two daughters named Saher. His younger daughter Saher is mid 20's, married to King of Bahrain's son and together they have a son.
