Saudi Prince named alongside Thunberg, Beckham and Meghan Markle in top 50 shaping the UK

Saudi Prince Khalid bin Bander bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud has been named among GQ’s most influential people in Britain, joining prominent figures from the worlds of business, media, sport, politics and activism.

The 43-year-old Saudi ambassador to the UK is among esteemed company which includes environmentalist Greta Thunberg, Meghan Markle and David Beckham.

Labelling him “the kingdom’s new schooler”, the magazine says: “Whatever your views of Saudi Arabia’s human rights record, the country is currently on a huge PR drive.

It will inevitably become an increasingly prominent player in international life, particularly through hosting sports events, affording its Old Etonian ambassador to the UK much greater clout.”

Born in 1977 in Paris, Khalid bin Bandar is the son of Bandar bin Sultan. He attended Eton College before going up to Pembroke College, Oxford, where he graduated in Oriental studies.

He also attended Sandhurst Military Academy, graduating as a commissioned officer before becoming a post-graduate at Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.

Previously the Saudi ambassador to Germany, Khalid bin Bandar was appointed to the UK role in 2019.
