Frederik and Mary’s First Day in Saudi Arabia
The Danish Crown Prince Couple arrived in Saudi Arabia last night, before having a light day today where they met with the Saudi Royal Family.
Frederik and Mary were given a sight-seeing tour of Riyadh, the Saudi capital, this morning, which included a tour of Ad’Diriyah, a historical city that has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2010.
They had lunch with King Salman, and the Crown Prince had a private audience with the King, during which they “reviewed bilateral relations and aspects of cooperation between the two countries.”
